St. Andrews vs. King's College LondonWatch
Need more help on going postgrad?
St Andrews is a relatively small university, in a small town in Scotland, without even a train station. It's nearest city is Dundee. It's nearest large city is Edinburgh. It has a very laid back feel in historical, rural environs. You're likely to mix with the same people every day (this is less of a problem for Postgrad courses since you're not there for 4 years like undergrads). St Andrews is less international and is mainly British people and Europeans. You will be unlikely to meet anyone in St Andrews who isn't connected with the university. St Andrews is very safe with almost no crime. St Andrews is cold in the Winter, probably the coldest part of the UK. If you're not from the Northern half of the British isles you might find it noticably different in terms of climate.
KCL = There is a relatively high risk of crime (I had my bike stolen while I was there, though to be fair I did leave it unattended without a lock).

That's not necessarily true that London has a high crime rate. Its just like any other city it depends upon where you go,
