If you want to go to Royal Holloway, then that's up to you. Distance may be an issue if you're intending to commute but they're not that far from each other.

The university you go to can make a difference in your life, but I can't advise on the difference between Royal Holloway and Brunel in terms of prestige.
Hi @amina1122

Congratulations on getting an offer from both universities, what an achievement!

It's really important to weigh up all your options when deciding on a university,

As I'm sure you've seen the Economics and Management degree at Brunel is either three years full-time or four years full-time with a one-year professional placement. It's accredited by the ACCA and CIMA, which means you’ll gain exemptions from certain professional qualifying exams should you decide to study further to become a chartered accountant.

In terms of Brunel itself the university is obviously only a short train ride away from central London and has a great community feel! There's loads of food places, sports clubs etc. right at your finger tips!

Hope that helps,

If you have any other questions let me know!

All the best
