    Exeter is better than UEA as Exeter is in a better position in the league table than UEA.
    Read earlier posts by PQ. Which league tables? Sunday Time LT rates it lower than UEA so ratings which are so close to each other can usually be taken with a pinch of salt.

    Whoa! hes right!! why didnt anyone else think of that!?
    Actually, if you read through the first page of this thread, you'll see that Exeter is better on 2 league tables by 5 and 10 places, and UEA is better on another by 11 places. Last year UEA was higher on 2 (about 20-30 places higher on the guardian but it took a big fall for, un-known reasons, this year), and lower on 1, so there really is no difference.

    Actually I just remembered I don't like Exeter because they didn't send me a prospectus.

    ...but perhaps thats better than Kent who just got carried away and sent me three...
    Haha, you're as bad as me! The delivery/misdelivery/excessive delivery of prospectuses has coloured my views on more than one institution.

    The pack which SOAS sent me had similar dimensions to the Argos catalogue - what use do I have for their last three campus publications and a host of other literature? I get the impression that their admin staff are trying desperately to offload reams of this stuff!

    UCL's prospectus came the day after I ordered it off the website though.

    Similar thing happened to me! Wolverhampton sent me 4 prospectuses last year and I didnt even ask for 1!

    medicine. want to live in cheltenham (or possibly london) when i'm older so very convenient for hospital placements

    did you say you were going to exeter? one of my mates is at Duryard (sp?) and is really enjoying it - has a bit of a rep for sloaney green-welly girls in land-rovers though, similar to bristol in that respect.
    i had heard that aswell. Exeter is often known as the uni for posh kids who can't get into oxbridge, and unofficial-guides.co.uk certainly shows it to have a high percentage of private school students, but as you say, this is similar to bristol. Im going self-catering so hoping that the sloanes stick to catered, though im OPEN-MINDED, i can get along with most...

    I'm sure at UEA you would get a more refreshed and avantgarde approach to literature than at certain other institutions - its not to be sniffed at IMO.

    Would you get to spend a year in the US?
    Yeah and there's a choice of about 30 different places! That's one of it's main appeals to me. And the course seems really modern like you said, lots of choice and no forcing you to study chaucer! You can do things like history and politics as well as literature too.

    Leekey - what's wrong with York? It seemed really nice on the open day (although they did basically tell me not to apply since I'm not predicted three A's!)

    Exeter and UEA are both good unis, but I have to defend Warwick. I just really like the place. Manchester and Newcastle are favourites too.

    Incidentally, why do people write "s**t"? If you want to say ****, say ****. It's not that hard.
