    Hi all!
    I've got offers for English at both Birmingham and Leeds and am having a hard time choosing between them. My offer for Birmingham is unconditional if I firm it which is making me lean slightly towards firming it - I love the courses at both, though.
    Could you guys tell me whatever you know about the culture and nightlife in both cities?
    Also, which do you think is a better university overall?

    I don't think there is much difference between Leeds and Birmingham in terms of general prestige, perhaps Bham is edges it slightly for me, but that's just my opinion. Look in painful detail at the course, what modules are available, how are they taught, what is the coursework/exams ratio, what study abroad/internship opportunities are there etc - you will likely find that you do prefer one course over the other.

    How could you possibly decide without first visiting both uni's in first hand?
