I have applied for straight philosophy and finally received all my offers.
But I am currently really torn between whether to firm Bristol or Birmingham!! I liked both universities even though they are extremely different.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am running out of time.
Need to choose my firm uni Watch

Bristol is far more prestigious and recognised globally - so I would go Bristol personally

Bristol is more prestigious and has a better Philosophy course in my opinion.

Hi, look through their modules.
Some modules Birmingham doesn't offer: Phenomenology, Philosophy of Biology.
Some modules Bristol doesn't offer: Feminist Philosophy, Nietzsche.
If you're concerned about prestige for pursuing a postgrad in philosophy, the greatest factors are achieving a 2:1+, recommendations and your writing sample. Both unis are equally respectable. Good luck.
