    Hey,
    I'm a year 13 student taking History, Politics and English Lit, I've had offers from both Bristol and SOAS but I'm really conflicted as to which to put as my first choice. Any current/past students of either uni or residents of the respective cities etc. who could help me out with the advantages and disadvantages of either university would be appreciated!
    Many thanks,

    Can you still apply if the UCAS deadline has passed?

    What's the relevance of that?

    OP is deciding which university to firm, not where to apply.

    I would thought unless you go through clearing you can't apply for getting into 2017/18 Uni? Just asking no need to be snappy.

    Hey,
    you're right that you can't apply through UCAS anymore as the deadline has passed. I, however, have already applied and received offers, I'm just struggling to choose which to accept.
    Hope that clears things up,

    Apologies must admit didn't see that part, I must admit Bristol as a city is really nice.

    Both are great unis, I really like SOAS cos of the range of subjects and specialism that they have for non-European studies.

    But people will say go for Bristol, its seems more respected and a traditional uni. What u studying?

    Why did you shortlist them in the first place?

    Which course do you prefer? The course is the most important factor.

    Have you visited them?

    What are their offers, and your predictions?

    You have until May to decide. There's no rush....
