    Vote please. I am stuck trying to choose! Sheffield's offer is AAB whereas Newcastle's is AAA. Offer is not the problem so vote based on which you would go to if you had to choose. Thanks in advance.

    Also, is anyone on here doing either of these courses at the moment? If so, tell me what it's like!

    I would pick newcastle. Have a few friends going there and I've heard its good. However, would you miss the IR aspect at sheffield? If so seriously consider there. But both are good unis so well done on the offers.

    Certainly the course looks better at Sheffield as I prefer the IR side of things, but that isn't the only thing I am considering obviously.

    I really did consider Aberdeen. I like the place aesthetically and I know it is a grossly underrated university. However, I just feel that Newcastle or Sheffield could offer me more as cities. Aberdeen is a really good insurance choice though!

    Yeh fair enough, its is also a bit far up north, that really put me off personally and was solely why i didnt give it the due consideration it deserved lol! Good luck with your choices though Why not visit them again (assuming you already have) and which ever one your instincts seems to like best I would generally recommend that you go for.

    I've visited one twice and the other three times and still can't decide! What I do know is that I'm in a win-win situation. Both are decent, 'reputable' Russell Group universities with good Politics departments. Similarly, both cities are student-friendly and have a good night life. Wherever I pick I know it will be the right choice; it's just getting on UCAS and actually sending back my reply that I'm finding to be the problem!

    Sheffield has a better Politics department, and the nightlife is great there (although not quite as good as Newcastle).
