    You've got plenty of time to do more research - you shouldn't make a decision on Track until April at the earliest....so look on unistats, on which university guide and similar review sites for student opinions and stats about the courses, look on the course and department websites for more information about what you'll be studying, look on university careers pages to find out what graduates from your course at those universities went on to do for work, look at cost of living and accommodation and social life information etc etc

    Work out where you'll be happiest and do yourself justice.

    ^^^ Also might be useful to look at student reviews on your course/ each university (perfect if you find someone for both :popout:

    Once you've got it down to final two or are relatively set on one, ask if you can go and visit the Uni (or attend an Open Day if one's coming up - better since organised to give out info, more people around, can ask students, lecturers etc.)

    Look at the area, what facilities you'd actually use, where you'd socialise, if there are restaurants you like etc. You'll be able to instantly tell whether you'd like staying there for the next few years just from the 'vibe' it gives off.

    Good luck

    Yeah i think it's very important to make some research about the places as i would be staying there for few years. But since I'm living outside from the EU so I can't attend the open day. Really hope that the infos that i might get from internet would be a help! 😅 Btw thanks a lot!
