    Hello,

    I just got offers from all of my five choices, but I am a bit overwhelmed right now.
    I applied for BA English (Literature) but am not sure which uni I should chose.
    Could you please tell me of your experiences, and whether you like or dislike the course. Moreover, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how many students there are +- in the course.

    Thank you.

    Hi

    Congratulations on getting offers from all 5 of your choices I understand how having a lot of choices can be a bit overwhelming but the choice is good, at least in the university application process!

    While I don't really have personal experience with any of these universities, I can give some insight on some ways you might go about narrowing your choices down.

    The first thing I would do is look in depth at all the courses and the modules that each university has to offer (e.g. what literary focus each university has, for English Literature this is very important). Find out which course structure fits you the most. Because after all, you are in university to get an education first and foremost so the course is definitely the most important thing. You have to enjoy what you are studying!

    Then the next thing that is the most important is to look at opportunities each university has to offer, where you can go on study abroad programmes, student societies, career centres etc... These are an important part of the university experience and you have to make sure that you are satisfied with the opportunities that you have in each university.

    Then, of course, you have to look at factors such as location, accommodation, etc... which are really important as well (but I guess location isn't that big of an issue because all these universities are in London)

    You can use this website (http://unistats.com/) as a helpful point of comparison between all of the universities.

    Remember that you don't have to choose your firm and insurance options until a few months later, so you don't have to be so eager to choose now. After all, it is better to think about it and make an informed decision because after all you will be spending the next 3 years of your life maybe more studying in this institution.

    I hope this helps and good luck!
