University research babble, chat excerpt, and a request.

So, I randomly decided that I should try to go to university in Wales. Yes, Wales. No, I have no idea why I suddenly smacked myself upside the head and went "Oooh, Cardiff University sounds like a great place to spend three years studying at!", but I did, so I went into full-on research mode. Don't you folk just LOVE it when I do that?


According to the Stamford test, the following subject areas are things I'm interested in:
Modern Languages
History Based
Media/Radio/TV/Film
Education
Archaeology
International Studies
Psychology
Social Studies/Science
Law
Classical Languages
Ancient History
Combined Sciences
Administration

Okay! Let's narrow this down. I'm not doing admin or combined sciences, I can tell you that. Or psych. Or international studies. So I'll toss those all out the window. And much as I love languages, the chances of me actually focusing on one? Slim to none. So those are out, as are the media things (simply because I decided that). So, in likely order, we've got:

1. Law
2. Social Studies/Science
3. Archaeology
4. Education
5. Ancient History
6. History Based

Now folks, these are just the categories, oh yes indeed. The specifics? That's where it gets fun! For the sake of my sanity, though, I'll just list what I'm interested in.

1. LAW
- Applied Criminology Justice Studies
- Crime Studies
- Criminology
- European Law
- Law

2. SOCIAL STUDIES/SCIENCE
- Anthropology
- Social Anthropology
- Social Welfare
- Social Work
- Sociology
- Youth Studies

3. ARCHAEOLOGY
- Archaeology
- Forensic

4. EDUCATION
- Education
- Learning Difficulties
- Primary Education
- Secondary Education

5. ANCIENT HISTORY
- Ancient History

6. HISTORY BASED
- Medieval History
- Medieval Studies
- Social History


Well. This should be fun to whittle down. And by "fun", I mean long and arduous.

After hours and hours of research (well, sort of), I have this list of courses to apply for via UCAS:

Archaeology and Medieval History @ Cardiff University
Ancient and Medieval History @ Cardiff University
Psychology and Criminology @ Cardiff University
Forensic Science with Criminology and Criminal Justice @ University of Glamorgan
Early Childhood Studies @ University of Wales Swansea
Social Work @ University of Wales Swansea

I have everything completed except the reference and the personal statement.

Also, so that I can get Tracy to write me a reference for college applications... What would you people say are my top five qualities that universities would find attractive? Thanks in advance!
