University of Nottingham vs Cardiff University for MSc Psychology (conversion)

I have received offers from Cardiff, Nottingham, Exeter and Liverpool. Out of all, I've boiled it down to either Cardiff or Nottingham.
Nottingham ranks better overall, but Cardiff ranks slightly higher (not significantly) in psychology. I'm an international student, from a non-psychology background, hoping to make a switch to psychology. Cardiff has a 12-week internship program, so that was slightly higher on the list. But I'm seeing mixed reviews everywhere about the university. I'm really confused as to which University is better for this course and the opportunities after. I need some insights on the course, instructors, placements, campus, how helpful the university is-especially to an international student, their facilities, etc. Please help me take a decision, I'm pretty confused right now.
