    I'm an international student and I've gotten conditional offers from both King's and Durham to study History and Politics probably (Durham through their combined honours).

    I've read threads that say King's standard is slipping but at the same time, Durham doesn't fare highly on the rankings. Which one would be better? In terms of university life, education and prestige??

    Both are very good universities. Perhaps the main thing you should consider is that one is in the heart of London, while the other is in a small, picturesque city in northern England.
