Struggling with two course choices - both Mchem with year in industry:
My offers for both are the same, and I do not have an overriding gut feeling about which place is right for me.
Cost wise, first year housing looks a little cheaper at Cardiff, but after that private accommodation seems to be of similar cost, so is not of any real significance in my decision, similarly, the course structure of both, are alike, and research and rankings are pretty balanced. I have attended open days and UCAS days at both, and still cannot decide between them!
I had once found some individual student comments from the National Students Survey, which included such things as ease of transport/where to shop/availability of part-time jobs (those little things which might help make the decision), but I've lost the link! If anyone has any individual input on either uni, please feel free to comment - it would be really useful at this point.

You say the course structures are similar at both universities, but are they really? I'd be very surprised if they offered the same optional modules for example. According to UniStats Cardiff's degree has considerably more coursework than Southampton, is that a factor you have considered?
