Hiya, so I need some help choosing between unis. So far I'm divided between Leeds or Queen Mary University of London.
I'll be studying English at both of them, and have been offered ABB for both as well (although with Leeds, it's only ABB if I make them my firm).
I really want a good city life, that's a must for me personally. And I'd like somewhere that's got a lot of different, varied and diverse people (another must).
Facilities are also important, as well as the campus and accommodation (I don't want to feel like I'm staying at some three-star old person's holiday village xD).
University reputation is also a factor for me, but something I'm willing to compromise on if the overall university experience will be great (that's what most important at the end of the day).
So, can anyone give me some advice about one or both of them? Any current/former students, or applicants like myself?

I would say Leeds - it probably edges QMUL in terms of reputation, and is much more of a student city than London. It'll also be a lot cheaper as it's so far north - going out will be a lot less expensive.
But at the end of the day, it's your decision - if you went to open days, were you particularly drawn to one of them?
I've applied to Leeds for history and politics - I decided against QMUL as I thought the facilities weren't great.
