    I've decided on my firm choice however I'm having deciding between KCL (AAB) or Cardiff Uni (ABB) as my insurance choice
    -My teachers keep on telling me that picking KCL would be foolish as it's too high an insurance choice to have.
    -Obviously KCL would have better job prospects (biochemistry) but how would they compare on the following?:
    1) university feel/social life
    2) accommodation- which is better? which is more likely to offer me accommodation as an insurance applicant?
    3) sports facilities- does anyone know if they have athletic teams? (I couldn't find one on the KCL website)
    thanks

    For 2 and 3, Cardiff. For 1, both universities have this, though probably in different ways.

    Have you visited both? Which did you like better? Which has the course options that you prefer?

    I haven't visited either since I live in Dubai which makes it a hassle. I prefer the King's course as it has a study abroad option but my teachers keep telling me to choose Cardiff as King's is to optimistic. I know it's my decision but they probably have more experience with this stuff

    Well then, if Kings really is your second choice, insure it. If you miss both your firm and insurance there will always be Clearing.
