    I have received all my offers back from the universities that I applied to but I have no idea which one to go to. Each university is good for different reasons and the perfect university would be a mixture of all of them! I have visited all the universities on the open days and 2 of them again due to an interview or compulsory department open day. I am predicted 3 A's in Geography, Chemistry and Physics.
    Offers:
    University of East Anglia - Environmental Earth Sciences (International) - AAB
    University of East Anglia - Environmental Earth Sciences (Industrial) - ABB
    UCL - Earth Sciences - AAB
    University of Leeds - Environmental Science (International) - A*AA (interview upcoming)
    University of Leeds - Environmental Science (Industrial) - ABB

    Does anyone have any advice, tips or methods on how to choose?

    Have you looked at the degree structures and module options in detail? There are bound to be differences, I think you should firm whichever course that has the most interesting modules. Also consider fieldwork options, how the degree is assessed (coursework vs written exams - you can find out using university.which.co.uk), year abroad opportunities and cost of accommodation.

    As Snufkin suggests, using some of the tools around to compare the courses is a good idea. You can also use Unistats to drill down and see what some of the students are saying about the courses.

    As you'll see we have a 100% satisfaction ranking in the course here at UEA, and we pride ourselves on student experience. Furthermore I'm confident the cost of living here in Norwich can work out cheaper in some respects than your other choices in particular London. Our private accommodation and campus accommodation certainly seem to have some more affordable options.

    Do let us know if you have any questions
