    Im an Indian applicant, and while I've made it so far in the application process without going completely crazy, I think this may just be the tipping point! I'm trying to decide between York and Kings College London for a BA in literature. I like the course structure at both places, and I am convinced that both institutions will give me a wonderful educational experience and plenty of opportunities to grow.
    , I've lived in london before, and since I've only resided in big cities all my life I know I'll be comfortable there. More so than York,anyway. KCL is also more reputed globally, possibly because its older.
    york, on the other hand, has that rustic beauty mixed with city life, which is really appealing. Its also supposed to have a course structure that allows professors to text to know the student and their styles and perspectives vey well on an individual level. And give that KCL is situated in London, York is slightly more affordable.
    I really am desperate, because I have to respond to my offers soon. Can someone please share some insight, and help me make the right choice?

    Read the course descriptions, including the detailed descriptions of the individual units/modules for each of the three years of the course, very carefully. Which one do you prefer? Which one will hold your interest for three years?

    Both the Unis you have named are 'good' Unis - so dont get hung up on the nitty-gritty of the supposed prestige or ranking of each Uni. Choose the course you will enjoy the most and at the University *you* will feel the most comfortable at.
