    I have been offered a place in both unis for Business and Management and right now I am really confused for which I am going to select as firm choice.

    I have searched for hours and hours but still I cant choose.
    Firstly I can see that RH is a University of London and it has a very nice campus(have visited) with sports facilities (I play football) and also it seems to be great in terms of rankings, holding 32 position overall and 39th for Business and Management. I dont know many things about the graduate prospects and if there are great opportunities, but idc so much because I am going to do a postgraduate degree after that as well. The negative fact of RH, is that it is located in Egham. I am the kind of guy that really likes to chat and also have a drink or something at night clubs. I know that this is something difficult there, thus here I need your comments and help.

    On the other side, I have in my mind Kent university. After searching lot of things about Business and Management there, I didn't really find something clear. Firstly, the course is running at Medway campus, which (after reading reviews and comments) seems to be not good at all fore people like me. Also, I dont now if there is a football team that I can join there. The positive things that I found are the rankings, Kent is 22th for Business and in overall,too. Which seems to be its great advantage. But I have read many bad comments about life in Medway for a Kent student and stuff like that, which therefore makes it difficult for me to decide.

    P.S.: Things to consider :
    -In RH no friends of mine will go
    -In Kent (same course) a close friend will go
    -I play football for 8 years and I hope to join the f.team of the uni
    -Like chating and meeting new people
    -Like clubing
    -Really like night parties in university (such as the ones in movies lets say :P )

    Thank you! Please help me as soon as possible. Have to decide until 30th of April!!!

    I knew some people who dropped out of Kent because they found the course wasn't good, and Medway as an area isn't good either.
    But it's your decision at the end of the day, that's the exception as compared to the norm.

    Understood..thank you for your help. I have also read some bad critisisms about Medway campus, so I really don't know what to do.

    I live near Medway. Kent is a good uni (it's my firm), but trust me, you don't want to spend 3 years in Medway
