    - Leeds has prestige by being in the Russell Group, I guess.
    - Which area do you like best? You're going to be there for three years at a minimum.
    - Which course's modules / options interest you more?
    - Which university has more contacts, placements etc to help you with Business (which I assume you're applying for).
    - Does either university have something the other doesn't? What are your deal breakers?
    - Which is closer to home? Not a full point, but you may feel homesick from time to time.

    Just a few points to weigh both universities up across. I'd have gone Leeds personally, but I'm not you.

    The course websites themselves should tell you that; if not it might be worth sending an email to the admissions tutor for Int. Business and asking what kinds of placements are available.

    As for the area, student life etc - it might be worth using the website https://www.instantstreetview.com/ and typing in "University of Leeds" and "University of Greenwich" and just exploring a little bit around the area.

    It's really about what you prioritise when going to uni; a quiet, non-crowded location matters to me so I'd pick Greenwich. Leeds is prestigious and that does matter for a handful of courses (mine included), but for everything else I'd probably pick there.
