Hey! I am currently trying to decide whether I should choose KCL or Cass to study business management at undergraduate level. I have read so many reviews about each university, and have noticed that Cass is better for business whereas KCL has a better reputation overall. I’m trying not to focus on ranking though, and more on teaching style and overall experience. Please help me out!

Hi! I currently study at Cass doing Investment & Financial Risk management. I'm in my first year.
Firstly, its worth noting that KCL is a decent uni, and their business management course is really good too! I know lots of people at Kings and most of them seem to love it.
Cass is one of the best business schools in the world and thats very apparent when you study there. There are great resources, great lecturers and from what I have seen and heard, you'll be favoured by employers by going to Cass. But my biggest concern about studying here is City university as a whole. Overall it doesn't have as much of a uni feel as Kings does. That doesn't bother me too much though as I was in intercollegiate halls in my first year (garden halls) so most of my mates are from UCL, KCL and City.
If either of you have any more questions do let me know!

What’s life at city like? Is the course at CASS for business management better than KCL. How does CASS support it’s students in finding work during the placement year?

Hey! I'm in my first year at CASS and I'm doing business with marketing. There are 5 different business UG courses at CASS and for all the first years from all the business routes, have the same modules (everyone is one big cohort) and you specialise from the second year.
On average, one lecture is 2 hrs long and a tutorial is an hr long, so in a week that would be about 12 hrs a week of contact time.
I can't compare whether the course it better at CASS or at KCL since idk.
I have to say that staff at CASS is very supportive and they have their own careers department to help students, for example, they do CV checks, give feedback on your CV, help with finding internships and placement years and help answer any questions you may have. Just yesterday, they sent out an email titled "Work Placement and Summer Internship - Student Preparation" that had a form which you could fill out if you are interested in doing a work placement or internship in 2021.

Hey! I'm in the same position as the above posters and was wondering how you'd say the business management courses compare based on what you've heard from people at Cass vs your friends at King's?
Also, how has your experience at Cass been in terms of social life but also in terms of academics (teaching quality/workload etc)? And how is the student union/societies at city?
Thanks!!

Hey! Other than the 12hrs of contact time, how is the workload? And have you enjoyed the course overall? Thanks!

Yeah I do! Most of the lecturers and tutors are helpful but these a small number which are :/ But if a lecturer isn't good then the tutor tends to be good and vice versa and if your tutor isn't good then you can just go to another tutors tutorial (they say it's not allowed but lots of people do it), the only thing is, you cant change lecturers. The modules themselves are really interesting and since you fully understand something, it's the best feeling ever! (mostly because you would've worked hard to fully understand the content and you feel proud of yourself)

Student wise, everyone is nice but some people tend to just stick with people they met during the first week or so - that's something I don't like. The societies and uni events are good too, but again, there are some which are :/
