    I am from Brighton and have an offer to study at university of Southampton but am really worried I will find it much more boring than Brighton, it doesn't seem to offer as much and so would if be better to a bigger city that is similar to Brighton in terms of variety? i.e Nottingham/Cardiff

    Southampton has the best nightclubs on the South Coast, bar Brighton I'd argue so don't worry about that kind of thing. (including Oceana which is one of the largest in Europe).

    West Quay is a huge shopping centre which has everything you could want in the city centre, and you have Portswood high street when you move out of halls in 2nd & 3rd year which has a good selection of shops too & a large sainsburys.


    Mm it depends on your experiences; it's probably better than Exeter, but most likely worse than Brighton.

    Just go to Jesters and you won't remember anything anyway. And you'll ruin your shoes.

    That said if the metric by which you're choosing universities is the night life, might I suggest you take a gap year and spend some time working to get some perspective?
