Hi everyone. I have been having a slight dilemma in deciding which university to go for as they are both strong universities. I find that University of surrey is quite alluring as the campus does seem to be in a much better state compared to Queen Mary's campus though I have only seen Surrey's campus through the internet and have not actually visited it.
On the other hand, Queen Mary is in London and is also part of the Russell Group so I think this would make this Uni more distinguished once finishing your degree.
If I could have any input from any of you who have attended any of these universities I would be really grateful as it truly is quite the struggle for me to decide on which university to firm and my deadline is quickly approaching (june 6).

Visit them both before you make a decision. Look carefully at the course structure/module options and pick whichever course seems more interesting. Also consider things like cost and availability of accommodation, local job opportunities, study abroad opportunities etc. Queen Mary is not 'more distinguished', I'd say they were pretty much equal.

I agree that the reputation advantage for QMUL is minimal relative to Surrey.
However one thing you may want to consider is the London advantage. Being in London, you'll be presented with more opportunities in terms of networking/recruitment
