    Basically, I've just received an offer from the Goldsmiths College, University of London.
    My firm choice will be Cardiff university but I have to choose an insurance choice and I can't decide between Oxford Brookes and Goldsmiths College.
    I'm going to study Politics. In your opinion, which one should I choose?
    Thank you!

    The facilities are good, accommodation is good, the campus seems nice and you can benefit from having studied in a city like London

    Have you visited both universities?

    Goldsmiths and Oxford Brookes are very different locations and will offer a very different experience. I live very near to Goldsmiths in London and as it's a city location some people love it and other will hate it then with Oxford Brookes it's the same thing - some people would hate a campus location whereas others love it.

    Unfortunately, I didn't have the opportunity to visit the universities because I come from Italy! But two I visited both London and Oxford and I prefer London!

    100 euros would get you a return flight to London and you could visit both places in one day if you were really really organised. Even though you're in Italy I'd strongly recommend that anyone in the EU came to visit given how cheap flights are now meaning it's often cheaper to get from Europe than it is within the UK where you're looking at £50 or more for a 2 hour train journey. You'll be spending around £50,000 on this university decision so it's likely that 100e is probably a good investment in the long term.

    If you've been to both Oxford and London (bare in mind that Brookes isn't in central Oxford and isn't the traditional tourist Oxford) and prefer London, then this is probably where you should put as your insurance. However, keep in mind that living costs will be a lot more in London than Oxford. I live 2 stops from Goldsmiths and pay about £650 a month including bills which is relatively cheap for the area.

    The problem is that in three months I'll have my final exams and I can't skip school! I have school from Monday to Saturday and usually on Sunday I have to study because on Monday I usually have class tests!

    Anyway, thank you!
