Application deadline details:
A very supportive environment, with a comforting and lush market town surrounding campus in lovely Surrey. It’s a such a beautiful campus, but if you fancy a bit of excitement, the centre of London's only 20 minutes away – the best of both worlds, really. And there's a really friendly atmosphere, especially with the Student Union who are incredibly helpful, very friendly and considerate. There’s loads going on throughout the year – for one, the food festival hits town just as Freshers gets going, so you can meet your new flatmates and find new and exotic hangover cures!

Ok, small campus (Penrhyn road), over crowding, looks more like an apartment building.

Choose it if you don't have to travel much because the good timetable isn't so good when you add travel time either side. For pharmacy Kings and UCL are the best. Kings is third in the world for employability.
