I decided to enrol at Kingston and St George's for several reasons. Firstly, the selection process for candidates was well organised and it gave me a good first impression. In addition I felt comfortable at all times during the interview and I had the feeling that I would be very well supported. They also offered me accommodation and access to many other facilities and I was surprised as no other universities offered me anything like this at the other interviews. Secondly, Kingston and St George's had a good reputation and this also mattered to me. Finally, I loved the location which was a really nice area. All these positive aspects influenced me and I decided to choose Kingston and St George's. Today I recognise that I made the right decision.
