    Sorry, I don't know about these unis and wasn't going to post here... but I had to ask: isn't putting numbers into words a slower way to type?

    I don't understand...

    I think that it depends on what course you wish to take

    And I dont understand why it would be slower ?? because you'd be typing in less keys m8=two keys and mate= four keys .....

    I would however argue that you should really just type like a "normal person" to avoid confusion. plus, it would make other people more likely to take you seriously when answering your question

    I'd say Goldsmith's is probably the best out of that bunch. Kingston isn't as bad as people make it out to be(I'm not exactly saying it's great either) The transport situation to kingston is awkward if your trying to commute from northwest london or hertfordshire.
    Just forget about the other two on that list.

    You can look at university league tables, however, many people argue that they are not accurate representations of how 'good' a university is. I think they are good for a guide though.

    Bare in mind that the course that you / your friend is doing will change how your degree is looked at. It isn't all about the actual institution.

    For example, i studied for one year at Goldsmiths, which is rated around number 44 (out of 122 unis in the UK) However, i was studying Anthropology. Goldsmiths' Anthropology department is within the top 10 in the UK.

    You/ Your friend need to do more research than just asking others opinions. But if you have any questions about Goldsmiths, feel free to send me a message/reply to this.

    Overall Uni Ratings (out of 122):

    Goldsmiths 44
    Kingston 72
    Greenwich 91
    Middlesex 117

    I hope that this helped.
