Royal Holloway or Queen Mary for creative writing ?

Hi all
My daughter (who is French) got offers from both Queen Mary and Royal Holloway in English and Creative writing. Would be interested to get your views on the quality and diversity of the courses (and possibility to take options in screenwriting for instance..) and global reputation of both unis and ranking in this subject as we read contradictory info in this respect (as French people we have limited knowledge of the UK uni system).
Also we understand RHUL has more of a campus life since it’s further anyway from London but as QMUL also has accommodation on campus we wanted to check about social life and whether people still stay on campus during the weekends etc…
Thanks a lot

Thanks for lot for your great info. My daughter sent an email to the English department with a few questions about the program and notably any optional module son screenwriting but has not received any answers. Is there a specific email address we could use?
Also it is not clear to us whether rooms in the Founders hall are all sharing bath or whether some are ensuit.
Thanks a lot in advance
Best,
Olivia
