Have you tried writing a list of the pros and cons for each from your own point of view including stuff like accessibility, accommodation, which course is most highly rated etc?
I don't have personal experience of either but my husband went to Kingston and he said the social life was excellent which might be of interest!

That's what I thought! Although the modules are kinda the same for both courses, Westminster is higher on ranking than Kingston. Also, I see a lot os people saying Kingston's bad and has a bad rep?? Making me more confused.

It's not that bad. I went to UCL for undergrad and the difference isn't that dramatic.

The uni as a whole is quite small compared to most, so there's quite a communal feel to the place.

Oh really? Hearing that eases my mind up a bit. Thank you! It was quite low on the ranking so was worried that the psych department won't be as good.

What about the psych department? Is it a small department too? I also tried to contact them whether they do optional study abroad for a year or semester but I haven't hear back from them yet. Do you have any ideas whether they do or not?

It's not that small actually, relative to the size of the uni as a whole. I don't think they do a year abroad, not many unis do.

Oh okay! Also, what do you think about the social life there? They do have a study abroad programme but I'm just not sure whether they do it in psychology?

Social life is ok, bit crap compared to what I experienced in central London (UCL) but it is what you make of it

Like, what do you think of the societies they currently run? Do they have loads of active ones?

Yes! That is also one of the factors I'm looking at that's why I'm confused whether to go Kingston or Westminster as Westminster is more in the central but the campuses are separate.

Here's a list of all societies: https://www.kingstonstudents.net/soc...z-of-societies

I found most were religion based compared to UCL which focused on a wide range of stuff (but then UCL is pretty big compared to Kingston)
