    Hello, TSR!

    I'm a student from the US who has been accepted to the King's College in London, the University of York, and the University of Nottingham.

    I'm going to be studying literacy/linguistics. I'll be earning a master's degree.

    I've never studied in the UK, so I am relying on the internet in order to decide which school to attend.

    Here's what I'm thinking so far:

    King's College has the most prestigious reputation globally.

    York has an excellent English department.

    Nottingham's program is much more literature-focused which I like.

    So, I suppose I have a couple of questions:

    1) What is Nottingham's reputation in academia?
    2) What is the city of Nottingham like to live in?
    3) Would there be any clear benefits to choosing King's because of its worldwide reputation? What are they?
    4) What is York's reputation worldwide?

    At the moment, I am completely divided about which school to choose, so I am looking for all the help and insight I can get.

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi there- I'm not sure about York's reputation worldwide, but I think you're right- it does have a good English department. I guess London as a city is prestigious- you might want to take into account that London is expensive.
