Help Picking Insurance!!!

Hi everyone! I was looking at studying English Language & Linguistics and am really tossing up between the two for my insurance choice as to which one would be better as they're both different cities that have their pros and cons. A bit of context in terms of offers I have received is below but if anyone had any advice that would be amazing! I've firmed Uni of Sheffield rather than York as I preferred Sheffield's course structure but if anyone had any perspective that would be great!

P.S. I know I've been delaying this so much but I'm at a point now where I need to make a decision so any help would be much appreciated!
UWE: 112 UCAS Points
Winchester: 104 UCAS Points

Are you worried about not getting enough UCAS points for one? cause if you are then go with Winchester but if not then UWE. If that's not a worry it's a good idea to look at the course structure, where you live in relation and is it the right type of uni for you (campus, non-campus etc) good luck :smile:

There is an element of not getting good enough grades for Sheffield but in terms of UWE and Winchester, the grade difference is negligible. In terms of actual unis is UWE considered better than Winchester then by the sounds of it?

Winchester - regardless of UCAS points - simply because its a smaller Uni that specialises in Arts/Humanities etc, and UWE is a much larger Uni that offers courses across all subjects. Just make sure that Winchester's course options really interest you.
