Hello! I would like some help deciding on my university choice for the 2019 applications.

I am an international student applying to study Economics in the UK. My predicted score stands at around AAAB for the A Levels (roughly equivalent to UK's A*A*A), and I have a decent spread of economics-related activities (independent reading, extra credit modules, seminars etc.). I intended to apply to LSE, Cambridge, Warwick, UCL and Durham but was told to put down a "safety school". With my record, what other universities should I consider? Should I remove UCL and/or Durham for these unis?

I value: Quality of course, student welfare, accomodation (first time in UK!), university employer reputation, international student population, lgbtq+ acceptance

Thank you for reading!

what grade are you predicted for maths? I'd definitely say to swap at least one choice for a safety option, if you want somewhere accepting of lgbtq+ then manchester ranks highly for it, theres a big community of international students and its a northern city so i bit cheaper for living costs than more southern options.
