    Really can't decide on a firm choice. Anyone got anything to say about the course/ the university experience at either?

    Durham as a whole is known for having quite flexible courses, meaning you aren't forced into studying lots of stuff later in your degree which you won't like, and it's history course is very well regarded (up there with Oxbridge imo). On the other hand, UCL is much more internationally-renowned, and also has a very good History department. Wherever you go, you'll have an amazing experience.

    I would look at whether you would enjoy a large city experience (UCL) or a more intimate, "cosy" collegiate system (Durham). Personally I'd go for Durham, but in the end it's all up to you.

    (BTW University College looks amazing! Hoping to apply there for 2017 entry
