Check the course content - look at all the detailed descriptions of all course units for all three years of the course.
Which ones are compulsory, which ones are optional - and which ones would you actually choose?

All University courses are different - there is no universal syllabus, and each Politics degree will have its own 'flavour' depending on staff interests and the research focus of that Uni. This is why 'which Uni' is not as important as 'which course'. Its the course you will be studying every day for the next 3 years, not the Uni buildings or the town its in.

Also look at 'extras' like Study Abroad opportunities (even if the course isnt 'with Study Abroad' you may still be able to do this), placements etc. These sort of things enhance your eventual CV heaps. Which Uni offers you the most?
