You can find out what modules KCL and UCL do by looking on the website.

i'd also like some opinions on this as i've recently been to both KCL and UCL open days and am left a bit confused!! personally UCL felt so much nicer and is more prestigious but something about the atmosphere seemed off to me and i felt a lot more comfortable at KCL. UCL really emphasised the amount of choice there though which i think is notable (at KCL you have to pick an option from medieval/early modern/modern each i think in the first year). UCL also seems to have modules available from ancient to modern, so you can pretty much choose from whatever periods you want. but in your second year at KCL you can study abroad for a semester which sounds good

I don't go to either, but am in year 12 and have applied next year to study history at UCL (and cambridge, st andrews, durham and exeter)
Hopefully il get into cambridge, but if not UCL would be my favourite,
I considered kcl, but overall was unimpressed compared to ucl.
Ucl, at least to me, seems to have not only a friendlier atmosphere but also is much better recognised in the UK.
Also the breadth of history options is better

UCL is full of international students & people you probably won't have anything in common with. KCL is a LOT more friendly and sociable. History department at kings is also one of their best departments, in par with medicine. The first year at KCL there isn't much choice, but in a way its good because you will be able to realise what stuff you want to do and what stuff you don't want to do in year 2 (for example, I HATED medieval history but I'm glad I got to experience it). Your 2nd and 3rd year are pretty much mostly freedom.

Full? Nope. In 2016-17, 29% of UCL undergraduates paid the overseas (non-EU) fee, and only 8% of History undergrads paid the overseas (non-EU) fee. UCL does not have more international students than other big London universities.

29% is a lot more than 8%.
