    Hey guys, so far I've gotten offers from UCL, Bristol, and Edinburgh, and I'm waiting to hear back from Durham and St. Andrews. I've also applied to NYU in America and University of British Columbia in Canada, though I'm likely going to choose one in the UK. What uni do you think would be best?

    UCL:
    -Plenty of fieldwork opportunities, and they seem to be mandatory and included in tuition which is nice
    -Fairly prestigious
    -My offer includes a year abroad if I choose to do that, also there is an option to switch from the human side to the science side if I want

    Bristol:
    -Can't find much info on fieldwork, though I'm sure they have it
    -Also an offer for year abroad

    Edinburgh:
    -Offer is for Geography and social anthropology which is nice
    -Good opportunities for fieldwork though I can't figure out if the price is included in tuition

    Durham:
    -Respected geography program
    -Has fieldwork opportunities, though cost is not included

    St. Andrews:
    -Offer is for Geography and International Relations (I probably won't get in)
    -Not a lot of research opportunities

    Hahaha, good one. I am leaning towards UCL at the moment just because of the cultural things to do (I'm a fan of theatre) and also because I think it will attract a large variety of people. But I don't know how well-respected their geography department is or how much the geography program is recruited from for jobs (though I plan on doing a Masters and/or PhD at Oxford).
