Beaconsfield is closer to London-trains are very good and regular. There is STACKS of local money around, so being a personal trainer might be a good things to be. Dunno about quarters as I lived in (sh1te). The camp is pump and there is an unhealthy us and them attitude between DS and students. That said I enjoyed my time there. Do a search as there is quite a lot about DSL floating around arrse.
Ps the Kebab van on the main drag in B'field does a cracking chilli chicken in fresh pitta and the pubs are pretty decent too.
The MQ at B'field ARE sh1te, no doubt about it, but the 'laid back' life, local currency flow, proximity to London and the lack of a smell of onions more than make up for it. I'm enjoying my time there at the moment, although admittedly, I am not living in MQ but commuting each weekend. I'll offer my opinion that the 'them and us' attitude displayed by the Staff here is significantly less apparent than at Chix from previous experience, this being my fourth L4 course here. My opinion only of course. I'd also suggest, that depending on language, B'field offers a more varied intake method and saturation of the language in question, and depending on which Wing you serve within (governed by which language you study), probably more timetable flexibility. This is however, specific to language/wing and the number of students on said course.
Dontdreamit - please PM me if you want any particular current, competent information about the current situ at B'field, I'll do my best to find out for you if I don't already know. Whichever way, all the best.
PS. Edited for further info, and of course, monginess.
