    It depends what you want to get out of the course, what your interests are and what your finances look like.

    Firstly, check the details of each course. Every uni will set its own content, so even if they have the same title, the modules won't be the same. Look for modules which mesh with your particular interests within the subject. If the course includes a dissertation, make sure that the department has staff familiar with your area of interest, who might make good supervisors. If you have a preference for assessment such as coursework rather than exams, or vice versa, then prioritise the courses which offer that. If you're aiming for professional practice, check what types of professional accreditation the course will give you.

    Apart from that, think about the environment. Is cost an issue for you? Rent will be steeper in London. Do you want an urban environment (e.g. Leeds) or would you prefer a more self-contained campus away from the town/city centre (e.g. Bath)? Can you get to any of your options for a look around the place?

    It's a very personal decision... which university offers the best modules for you? Do you have any geographical considerations to consider? (eg proximity to dependent family members) Which city is most affordable for you to live in? Does the campus "feel" right? Are you attracted to the academic and social vibe there? How good is there careers department? Does it have good links with employers and a good reputation among them?
