    I've got unconditional offer from both unis, and I need to choose one of em as insurance for my undergraduate computer science course.

    Anyone please tell me which one I should choose, and reasons as well.

    (btw KCL is my firm)(If you think any of 2 above should be firm, then tell me why)

    If your firm choice is London are you sure that a campus based university nr a small city would be a good choice?

    Hi kzn
    Congrats on your offers
    For your insurance choice all I can suggest is look at the course modules, look at the facilities and opportunities available to you at each uni (not just academic) and make a list of pros and cons - it might help you make up your mind.

    Also look at location - they are both campus unis - but that doesn't mean that there isn't anything to do. Yes it's not London, but there's still plenty on offer at both unis and they give you the opportunity to try things you may never have thought of.

    Good luck with your decision and fingers crossed you'll get your place at KCL and none of this will matter

    Neither guarantee accommodation to insurance students. So it might be worth asking them the proportion of insurance entrants in previous years who we housed in halls (and how many had to find somewhere to live privately).

    Results day is disappointing enough if you've missed your firm choice - if you also end up frantically trying to find somewhere to live it can be a very unhappy time (and if you end up in private accommodation then that might make it more difficult to settle in)
