Please help - I've gone crazy and am reaching hysteria with my indecisiveness and the pressure of a deadline.
Thinking about the future, UofB wins (or does it?) I'll be graduating with a Master's degree (rather than a four year bachelor from UofE), have experienced an international year, have the option of a postgraduate Master's in either of the two subjects I'm interested in, offers virtually the exact degree I'm interested in.
Thinking about now, UofE wins: internationally acclaimed department with regard to one of the subjects I'm interested in, great city which more importantly will provide the fresh start away from my hometown (Birmingham, where UofB is), will let me pursue SOME modules in the other of the subjects I'm interested in in the first two years.
If I choose UofE and find myself to be content with pursuing the other subject as a minor in the first two years, then all will be good but I might also regret it. Equally, I want a fresh start and don't know how far living in halls will provide that.
What to do?

Long-term perspective almost always trumps the short-term

While I can't offer you much advice on the specifics of your dilemma - try and remember that you are in a win-win situation where you will definitely study a subject you enjoy at one of two great universities!

I would go with Birmingham. Though it's not far from home (believe me, I know you would like to go away; I desperately want to get out of my hometown), it seems like you've got a good deal there, and you can always move away for your postgraduate master's or once you graduate and look for a job.
