Where's the best place to study Comparative Literature in your opionion?
I hold offers from: KCL, Royal Holloway, Glasgow and St. Andrews (joint degree with English), but I'm very undecided, and being from Italy, it is impossible for me to visit all of them. I got an offer from Edinburgh too, but it'd just be an English Literature degree, though I know their English Department is very strong and well-known.
I'm on a gap year, so, naturally, I already know I have the grades they all require.

Any suggestions?

All of those universities are fantastic, so well done on your offers. Since I haven't been to any of those universities I cannot vouch for one, however I do study English and I personally would not like the idea of only studying literature from only English(and Scottish I presume?) authors. Perhaps have a look into whether Edinburgh offers modules on World Literature, but only if that matters to you.

If you go to KCL, maybe I'll see you in September =D I got accepted for their Comp. Lit BA as well. I'm not sure which uni to pick either, so I'm just scourging the forums =3

That's a good idea, actually. I'll look it up
Thank you for the answer!
