    I'm an American student applying to British universities. I have chosen four schools to indicate on my application, and I want to fill the fifth spot with either Brunel or Royal Holloway. What are your opinions on the two? Which do you think is better and why?

    I've visited Brunel, and would say its got quite a nice campus. Its average on the league tables but apparently has an amazing student union. Can't comment on royal holloway. Both are a comparable distance from the centre of london I think.

    Arts - def RoHo. Engineering or Sports Science - Brunel

    Anything else - don't know, but probably RoHo from an academic perspective.

    Both are campus universities. RoHo is very gay. Brunel has a lot of south Asians.

    Neither are proper London, although Brunel is a lot easier to get to Central London - RoHo really is in the middle of nowhere.

    RoHo has one really spectacular building, Brunel is pretty ugly all round. Ironically, Brunel used to have an historic campus just like RoHo, next door to RoHo, but they sold it a few years ago.

    I'll be doing Biomedical Science. I'm also applying to QMUL, King's, Reading, and Kingston. Yeah, I think you're talking about the Founders Building? I wish I could visit, but I'd be paying a lot of money to do that. I don't have a problem with diversity, I actually like it (with reference to your comment about the mass of South Asians at Brunel). Is there anything else you could tell me about the two?

    King's is probably my top choice, but I'm not sure that I'll get an offer. My grades are pretty good but not perfect.

    I went to RHUL and I would go to Brunel if big cities with various activities going on are your thing.

    I'd go to Brunel because it's a ten minute walk from my house.

    lol same I live behind Isambard. I actually didn't get the grades to start Brunel, so I went to Kingston for a year and then applied for Brunel to do a transfer
