Which university is best for Biomedicine?

I'm going to university to do Biomedicine. I have been accepted at Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester, Bath and Leeds but I'not sure which uni to pick. Please advise.

You can use our Subject Tables to compare the quality of teaching at the unis. Look at the Tables for Anatomy & Physiology and Biological Sciences:

Also look at the main League Tables as a guide to general reputation and quality:

The five universities you have named are all well regarded. With the exception of Bath they are all located in large cities.

Have a think about where you'd like to live, the accommodation offered etc. VI strongly recommend visiting, particularly if it comes down to a couple.

Check on employment prospects. Write to each university if necessary.

It is, in the end, a personal decision. You should look at the whole package and not just rankings. You will come out with a better degree if you are a happy student. A good degree is what will matter most in the long run.
