    Hi, I am an international student who has received offers from five universities for law: Lancaster, Leeds, Birmingham, Sheffield and Queen Mary. I am yet to choose my firm because I go back and forth between Leeds and Queen Mary. Which one do you think is better in terms of quality, undergraduate prospects and reputation?

    I would base it on your preferences as to location. Big differences between the 5.

    All of them are alright. QMUL the best no doubt, but would you like to live there? Leeds is next "best"; quite a busy city, but a wee bit full of poor people for my liking.

    QMUL used to be third in the UK according to the guardian but now it’s after Leeds in the league table. This kind of worries me

    League tables are not accurate; Guardian is by far the worst. Ignore this aspect of the game.
