    Have you visited Kings, if not then go as soon as you can. Think about if you want to move away from home or would you rather be nearby? Look at the course content, this can differ wildly.

    It definitely helps to know what course you are wanting to do...

    Subject?

    I think most people will be inclined to say King's, better reputation, chances are it'll be better in the course that you've chosen, better career prospects. If you're a city kind of person then you'll really enjoy London.

    The one disadvantage I can think of is the relatively high cost in London but that's for you to decide.

    KCL has more prestige, hands down.

    However, the real question is where you'll be happy. Don't go on reputation alone

    Chances are that it probably won't. They are both muchness, to be honest, still with significant variations department by department. But I certainly don't see King's as being more likely to have better departments.

    Are you suggesting the OP isn't a city person, as Cardiff is small?

    Cardiff, albeit a relatively new capital, is still a major city. Its city centre is compact but I wouldn't say compact = small. Newcastle is another example of a compact city centre, but still the centre of a large conurbation, with the facilities and infrastructure of a major city.

    Not to say that London isn't on a different scale and that there isn't a difference between living in the outer suburbs of Cardiff (if that is where the OP resides), and living in the centre of London.

    I dont think I like the fast life in London. But the only reason i would like to go Kings is cos of rep.
    But then Cardiff is good city, not so big and just calm compared to London if you know what i mean.

    No, I meant that Cardiff is fantastic for city people. I went to Cardiff on an open day and it's almost unreal how close the Uni is to the city centre, 'specially for the sciences, which are in the main building, just outside the SU (which is epic, by anyone's standards)

    Sure London's bigger, but Cardiff is as you say, quite compact which gives even more of a city atmosphere in my opinion.

    I'm studying physics at Cardiff and absolutely love it. Seriously, seriously good city for student life. (@ above; physics building isn't actually just outside the SU - that's chemistry. Physics is a a little way from the union - only about 5 minutes though) I've spent a fair bit of time in london aswell and I personally much prefer Cardiff. Can't really comment on the uni's, so that's just based on the cities. Cardiff just has a better atmosphere imo.

    The Cardiff physics department is generally pretty good too.

    And... If you come this year; guarantee you some good socials haha, me and my friend are organising them.
