Choosing between universities

I am a Norwegian International Baccalaureate student finishing my exams in May

I am applying for psychology/psychology with criminology and have gotten 5 offers from different schools in the UK.

1. UEA (university of East Anglia)
2. Brighton University
3. University of Southampton
4. University of Dundee
5. Plymouth University

So my question is, do you have any recommendations for me regarding quality of university/city?

Hi you can look at the Tables for Psychology
and the Main University able at

UEA and Southampton are the highest ranked of your universities.

Compare each university against our measures - for example for student satisfaction and graduate prospects. These could be important factors for you.

Other things to consider: Dundee is in Scotland; the other choices are all in England. Do you want to live in a city or on a university campus? Read the university websites to get a feel for where they are. What accommodation guarantees are you offered? Have you read the course details? Does one appeal more than the others in terms of content etc?

You could put Southampton as your CF but not your CI. Your CI choice should be a university with a lower offer.
