    I am an international student and I'm so incredibly drawn between: BA English and Theatre at Sheffield and BA Comparative Literature and Theatre Studies at Kent. I've received offers from both - among others, but these two are my first choice - and I can't seem to decide. On all of the rankings available, the two consistently stay neck and neck with one another; practically tied. I plan to complete a masters after I finish undergrad, so i'm looking to have a little bit of fun while I'm younger and less serious. Kent's program seems to outrank Sheff academically, but more students are satisfied with Sheffield's program and it's student life is a lot more inclusive and entertaining. Plus, Sheffield has ties with the professional theatre companies and Kent seems to only have one. I prioritize both rigorous academics and quality of living, so I'm very torn. Is there anyone on here that has been in either of these programs and can give me a little information on your experience?
