    As a student who is currently at King's I would choose a campus university if i could go back, actually looking into transferring at the moment because I cant deal with London for 3 years haha. I will list the pro's and con's - for my experience in particular

    1. Not much careers advice, maybe this would become more relevant in 2/3rd year, I haven't found anything useful.
    2. Everything is sparsely situated making it difficult to get to know people because people just leave & do their own thing after lectures
    3. Difficult to join sports/ societies if you are commuting or not near to the training grounds Surrey/ Lewisham. Take a while to get to.
    4. Everything is busy all the time - can be very stressful
    5. Lack of social spaces as part of the university
    6. Very Very Very expensive!
    7. Lack of social life outside halls, particularly if you are commuting

    Hope this helps, I am happy to answer any more questions
    This is v helpful thank you! I think I'm going to firm Warwick instead now

    I don't want to completely put you off King's as this is obviously just my opinion and experience, but I would firm Warwick, which is such a good university too! Best of luck

    Do you mind me asking what course/campus you are on?
