    Yeah, I've found a bus route that will get me there in like 15 minutes.

    Also a train route, I'll use when I'm running late.

    Thanks for your help btw.

    Hmm?


    Not sure why KCL and Oxford Brookes are Overrated.


    Especially Oxford Brookes, LOL.

    That's like saying Birkbeck University is Overrated when people barely rate them in the first place.

    OB is considered to be one of the next best options for people who don't go to Russell Group unis.

    The reality is that it is a long way off somewhere like Bath.

    Brookes is pretty average really.

    I would say Essex or Sussex University are the best options for non RG attendees
