    Hi, I am currently on a gap year applying to university for history. So far I have received an unconditional offer from Durham and hoping to get another offer from UCL. The history courses are extremely similar and I do like the social life/activities of both universities very much. Which one would you guys choose, and why?

    I faced this exact dilemma last year. I went for Durham, largely because of the collegiate system. I feel that the experience Durham offers is very "university" and unlike one you would ever get again in your life. Degrees in London are very different. You tend to have to commute and, let's face it, you will probably live in London some other time in your life. When else would you ever live in a college in Durham? Just my opinion though

      Not sure why the OP thinks the courses are similar, they aren't (not in terms of module options anyway).
