I was wondering which university would be best for medicine; manchester or king's? I would like to go out and things with friends but it really isn't that important and I'm not a clubbing kinda' person. Money is a big factor and I wanted to know whether the increase in maintenance loan for living in london covers the extra living costs? I also want a clinical placement orientated university.

Both are quite good. Its really your choice depending on where you want to live. Manchester would probably be cheaper.

Depends on what sort of medical course you want to go for. Manchester is very PBL whereas King's is more integrated/traditional. Just something to think about. It's quite important, don't just decided based on monetary factors

Different types of learning - though both are quite self-studying courses. PBL versus "integrated" (it's really just lectures with an introductory and a debriefing lecture)

Cost wise, Manchester is probably much cheaper than London.

Slight benefit if you want to work in SE England. Not in the sense that you have a leg up in getting a job, but just knowing the area, familiarity etc. kinda thing.

I understand So there is no like advantage in terms of career by picking London? The irony is I only have an offer from Manchester but incase King's offer me a place, I want to be prepared. I live in SE and am really tired of it in all fairness :L The only thing about King's is whether it would be of advantage in the future?

As I said, no.

And also...
Do wait for the other offer before you ask these questions. There'll be plenty of time to do so when and if it comes.

don't decide on living cost alone, these are fairly insignificant. Base it on the course, PBL vs Integrated/traditional.
Personally I'd go for kings, simply because it is london, becuase you have more opportunity to see rarer conditions etc there.
