    Hey, just posting a question for a friend as he doesn't have a tsr account:

    I've applied to do history for September and I'm choosing between UCL and York. I appreciate they both have their good points (York - nice city, very clean, UCL - in London so has all the facilities, underground) and their bad ones, so I was looking for some advice on what people think would be better go to - if anyone has any experiences or anything etc

    Thanks in advance

    UCL. The only reason is because it is in London.

    I don't know about the university reputations.

    Yeah your friend has the right attitude, unlike the posters I've seen so far boasting of idiotic things like 'global recognition'.

    I'd say it depends on your friend; whether he prefers a bustling uni life in London or a quieter one in York. I'd also take into consideration where he's from and where he wants to work; if from up north, and he sees himself moving back up there later on and have close ties with family - then I'd say London as a no brainer if he likes new experiences. If there's a fair chance he might end up working in London anyway, then York would give him more variety.

    It really is an individual decision. London can be a bit anonymous and isn't very studenty like York may be. But it has the best shopping, museums and clubs in the country. On the other hand, it's expensive more so than elsewhere in the country.
