Guys! I need your opinion, do you think Durham or King's is better place for English? I know King's has a better world ranking. However, Durham is doing much better on the League Tables.

What do you think?

It’s all about personal preference. No matter how good the university is, you’re not going to do well if you’re not happy there.

No one else can decide for you. Go to the visit days and see for yourself.

Not sure why kings is being compared to Durham. It’s rep is similar to that of Manchester, Exeter etc. I’d still choose kings though. Durham is a bit dead.

Durham and Kings couldn’t be much different in terms of location and environment. Like the other thread, there will not be any measurable difference between the two once you have your degree.

To echo what everyone has already said, it doesn't quite matter. Although Durham is seen as the alternative solution to an unsuccessful Oxbridge application by some private-schoolers, it doesn't really matter. King's is also an established Russell group university.

Similar enough that you should pick based on factors like which one you think you'll like better.

The Durham stooges here who seem to think its only slightly below Oxbridge are delusional.
