    I have received unconditional offers for both to study Graphic Design.

    I can't choose which one I prefer.

    I can imagine studying at both unis and the facilities are great and they seem to be both very great... I don't know how to decide. I've visited both time after time to try to decide but I'm just clueless now...

    Congratulations! I've also got an offer from Kingston.

    I'd check out the courses on unistats, and try to make a list of pros and cons between each uni. I think you should decide whether social life, student union, societies, the city etc weighs as heavily on your decision as the course itself. Perhaps that will make choosing a little bit easier? As well as living costs and such.

    Personally I've heard lots and lots of great things about Kingston's graphic design course, and I know that the lecturer in charge of 2nd grade is a lovely and energetic woman. (I've met with her on two occasions.)
    What I've heard about the course itself are only positive things, but I talked to another student while I was there, and she said that it's difficult to make friends unless you practically live at the student bar (which she doesn't.) On the other side, she is friends with most people in her class, and the graphic design course itself has aprx 70 students across all years. It seems like you really have to make an effort if you want to make friends outside your particular class or course. I don't know about you, I know some people may be a little face by that. Her view was also very subjective, and she said I should decide for myself if I decided to go there, because she was a quiet person who didn't like partying and socialising as much. She wanted to focus on her studies.
    The FADA buildings are a little bit old, though... But they did do some renovation while I was there, so perhaps they'll be finished when fall comes around?

    I have no idea how Brighton is like, but what I gathered from a friend is that it's a lovely place, and the locals are very warm and welcoming.

    If you do have the opportunity (and yet haven't) I'd suggest you visit the schools. I know Kingston arranges student tours if you come by outside their open days, since I went on one of those myself.

    Hi Vonbroten,

    Great to hear you have an offer and you took in so much information!
