Depends on the particular configurations you're looking at?

Better in what sense? The 13 is smaller and lighter, the 15 is bigger and more powerful.

They both suck for the majority of student users.

Too expensive. Horribly short-travel keyboards.
Apart from that they do have a nice chassis and good screens.

All in, if you want a flashy looking status symbol and have an excess of money to burn, buy one.
If you want a great tool for typing assignments, web browsing (including watching films), video calls, email, simple spreadsheets, you can get a well engineered (used premium business) laptop for £0 to £250.

Laptop size is a personal choice and will depend how you carry your laptop about. On a bicycle, or walking or public transport = get a 13" or 14" laptop. In the boot of your car = consider a 15".

It's hard to make a comparison based on that alone, but assuming we're talking about the latest models:

The Dell XPS 13 is more compact as a 13" machine compared to the 15" XPS 15, notably lighter at ~1.2kgs compared to ~1.8kgs for the XPS 15, is less powerful with an Ice Lake U-series processor and integrated graphics, compared to the H-series CPUs and dedicated graphics of the 15", and is cheaper starting at £1400 compared to £1600 for the XPS 15.

So that's £242, but you don't get a charger and probably need to replace the battery given that it's running 5 year old hardware.

Not to mention that the risk that would come with it not having a charger(i.e. potentially being stolen).

Or just accidentally buying the wrong one, or something dodgy, because a lot of people don't know any better. Not to mention I'd hardly call an i5 6200U premium by todays standards.
