    Hello! I am an American high school student applying to study Film Studies at the undergraduate level in the UK. I used WhatUni to help me make my choices, because I was able to input my AP exam scores as tariff points to figure out which schools I can get in to. I've chosen my five, but I'm just scared that I'm applying to unis that I won't be happy at, or I'll regret that I applied to the 5 that I did.

    I'm applying to Bangor, Glasgow, South Wales, Royal Holloway, and Queen Mary. I really wanted to apply to Warwick and Southampton, but they're both very expensive (and I have considered the fact that Royal Holloway is expensive).

    I'm applying to my five choices because I can most likely get in based off my tariff, their cost and cost of living, and their ranking on The Guardian's league table for media studies.

    I was wondering if anyone would be able to just calm my mind about my choices. I'm just scared that they're not where I want to be going.

    It's really difficult to advise because it very much depends on what kind of course you want to do, what sort of place you would like to live in for three years (London and Glasgow are significant cities, whereas Bangor isn't ), and what other factors may be important to you. For a course like Film Studies, I would suggest looking closely at their graduate employment prospects, because you would hope to see evidence of networking within the industry.

    I would definitely say that if you are planning on going to university in London to look into getting an oyster card or a 16-25 railway card which makes travelling around so much cheaper. Also, you can look on Youtube for many people's opinions on the universities, room tours or campus tours etc which can be really helpful. There are also lots of budgeting tips which could help to bring down costs a little for you Hope this helped
