As a Psychology student currently at Durham, I can definitely vouch for this. Statistics are a big part of research work and there's no way you can get away with not doing any. I wish I'd gone to UCL for Psychology, their department is really good, if not better.

I graduated from UCL in September and, although I am obviously biased, we do have a great Arts Dept (I did History) and English is really high up. I had the best time and our Union is friendly and feels like home. It's probably the closest you will get to a campus uni in London (places like Kings are too spread out to feel like a community) and we are incredibly close to Oxford St and Camden,but also more suburbian areas like Hampstead/Primrose Hill, and really close to the best clubs!

My friend went to Goldsmiths for English and loved it.

Fairy, I know you want to be in London but Warwick has an amazing creative writing course which is apparently very reputable and pretty hard to get into...my friend went there and she loved it, but said at first it was a little intimidating because her lecturers and tutors were obviously very well known within the writing world.

LSE has a lot of international students.

I studied at Goldsmiths College for a year (it was a study abroad program) I loved it! If you're looking for a somewhat laid back school then this is it.

Oh btw I studied Psychology and Education.

Fashionpolice - Westminster is a good university with a large student faculty. Good luck

I also applied to LSE, and Goldsmiths college in London.

Thanks a lot for your answer! Are you studying there? If so, may I ask you what you are studying? I was thinking about media studies.

HeeY YY...I have applied for Politics & Economics....

LSE is alot better, and with a better reputation, but it is very hard to get into because of the high ratio of applicants V Offers.

Still, dont let any of that stop you. If you have the grades or even the predicted grades, than go for it..If you dont apply, you'll never know. As far as media studies go, I think (not sure though) that Westminster does have a good media studies faculty.

Check it out at www.ucas.com. Good Luck
