    So, I have an offer of AAB for history at UEA, and also for history with a foundation year for CCC at the same university. I have my heart set on UEA and Norwich in general, which is why I applied to both courses just in case things go really badly next year. However, Anglia Ruskin gave me an unconditional offer which I'm seriously considering... but I must admit that I'm only very slightly deterred away from UEA. I have an interview/applicant day at University of Essex on November 29th, after which I'm assuming I'll also get an offer there.
    My questions:
    1) Is Anglia Ruskin a good university? Good for studying history?
    2) How is University of Essex for studying history?
    3) How do both of these compare to UEA?
    4) Should I accept UEA's offer as soon as I have all of my decisions in, or wait until I've been to all the applicant days, just to give the other universities a chance?

    I dont know much about those universities, but i would wait to go to the applicant days so you know you're definitely making the right decision.

    You have until May to decide. There. Is. No. Rush.

    And no advantage in deciding early.

    UEA is honestly the bests university out of them all (and arguable one of the best in uk), it has a great environment, including sport-park where you can do literally any sport you like, there’s the LCR which is a nightclub on campus (how amazing!) accommodation is also awesome (one of the best in uk, especially the zigorates).

    Norwich is an amazing place to live (coming from someone who lived their whole life in Norwich) there’s lots and lots of activities to do, it is one of the best places in uk to go shopping, has awesome nightclubs, cafes and bars.

    Anglia Ruskin is giving you unconditional because it doesn’t have enough students as it has one of the worst reputations of all universities in uk, I would really consider spending £9k+ a year to study there. also Cambridge is not a very vibrant place to live either!

    I don’t know much about Essex uni but I know that it is similar to uea, I would not recommend anglia Ruskin.

    Hope this helps, anymore questions just message me!
