    Hello!

    I've lived in London almost all my life, and love the city life, however, i want something different from University. London Universities tend to have campus' which are scattered around everywhere, and thus students don't tend to be around other students much, and there isn't much of a homely feel. (i gather this from kings college london, the uni my sister goes to)

    So basically, i was just wondering if you could name some medical schools that are a bit more close-nit? Excluding oxbridge!

    Thank you so much.

    Nottingham, Birmingham and Leeds are also campus universities with medical schools.

    Don't forget, you'll only be on campus for the first two years anyway. Once in clinicals you pretty much lose your feeling of belonging to a university - at least I did.

    Congrats for breaking the London bubble and wanting to get out!

    Some places I thought have a decent campus:

    Leeds
    Sheffield
    Newcastle
    Nottingham

    Nottingham is probably the quintessential campus university but apart from living in uni park, that's probably all the green-space contact you'll get because the medical school is completely separate (albeit over the road) from the campus.

    Probably wouldn't class Birmingham as a campus-y medical school.

    UEA I'd say, also it's walking distance from the main teaching hospital.

    Keele is a great one. The campus is absolutely beautiful as is the med school.


    Others have largely been mentioned.


    Good luck wherever you end up at.

    Well Aberdeen has a nice oldey worldey campus where the vast majority of subjects are taught. Since the new 'Suttie Centre for teaching and learning in healthcare' (catchy really isn't it ) was completed a few years ago, all medicine teaching is now up at the hospital site which is about 40 mins walk away from the campus. And all the halls :rolleyes:

    Well there isn't much I can do about it It is a convenient place for the medical school to be, makes ward placements easier having 1000 odd patient beds across the road.

    The distance is only a problem in first year and there are various buses from the halls. After that the majority of medics live quite close to the medical school. Being so far does somewhat increase the divide between medical students and everyone else....you don't even meet non medics in passing
