    Hi, I've been made offers for geography at Cambridge and UCL but I’m unsure of which to firm. I do think I'm leaning toward UCL a little more because of guaranteed study abroad, and I can't think of firming Cambridge for any reason other than slightly better modules and the prestige that it comes with.

    I decided to apply after all the open days so I’m not totally clued up on the city and university as a whole (although I did go for a summer school). Similar to another post I’ve seen, I guess I’m asking if Cambridge is worth the prestige, and if there’s anything else I should know about the place.

    Thanks!

    Visit the universities again if you need to. If you email beforehand and ask for a look around the department and/or colleges, they will probably happily oblige. If you still feel like you'd rather do UCL, then by all means go with UCL. Cambridge is a great university but so is UCL, so you're not exactly going to be hard done by either.
