I've received offers from Durham and Exeter University for BSc Psychology. I'd be really grateful if anyone could give any advice on which to put as my firm choice or simply share their experiences of studying psychology in either of these unis. I'm an international student so I can't go to the open days unfortunately.

Thank you in advance!

Have you tried using TSR connect?

This is a very personal decision so your best bet is to sit down and compare unis based on course structure and anything else that's important to you as a student.

I'm in the exact same position as you! Trying to base my decision off the internet is so difficult! Have you been allocated to a college at Durham yet?

Yes, I was allocated to Josephine Butler, which was my first choice.
I ended up putting Durham as my firm choice mostly because I liked the curriculum there a bit more. It seemed to give me a little more freedom, letting me take some modules from other departments besides psychology too. Exeter seemed to have a larger variety of psychology-related modules, though, so it's up to personal preferences.
I also liked the look of Durham city (as much as I could tell from google street view). Then again, I've heard that Exeter, as a city, is more interesting to live in (Durham is near Newcastle, though, so I could go there if I needed a bit more excitement)
Getting to Josephine Butler was also one of the reasons why I chose Durham. The dorms there have en-suite bathrooms and self-catering, which were important to me personally.
So yeah, it was a difficult decision to make. I chose mostly based on small differences in the course content, but it really is up to what matters more to you. I don't think you can go very wrong with either, they're both great universities. Good luck
