I'm not sure which to go for. I'm applying for either Critical History at Brighton or History at Bristol and I know Brighton ranks higher in the league tables for history but Bristol has the better employment rate and reputation overall.

I'm predicted A*AB and an A/A* in my EPQ

Do you mean Brighton or Sussex?

You don't have to decide this now - apply for both, if you get offers for both then you chose which you prefer in April next year when you'll have had lots more information about both courses and universities

Fwiw for 2021 the Complete University Guide ranks Bristol 19 for history and Brighton 89. The Guardian table* puts Bristol at 8 and Brighton at 16. I don't know which table you are looking at.

Imho, and taking out personal or environmental considerations, Bristol >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Brighton.

* The fact that the Guardian's table ranks Suffolk at 3 demonstrates the futility of putting too much emphasis on tables, particularly that one.

Ignore 'rankings' they are total bunkum, and no way to pick a Uni degree.
They are designed to promote the newspaper who publishes the guidesm, and they can never tell you if you will enjoy that course or like being at that Uni.

Look at the course modules/units for all three years of the course - which optional units would you choose, and why?
Which course interests you more? This is what you will be studying for the next 3 years so it needs to be able to hold your interest.
Which Uni sounds more appealing - Sussex is a modern campus Uni in a seaside town, Bristol is a city centre campus in a much larger city.
