in Edinburgh you'll die of cold, or become frozen and won't defrost until graduation..meaning you will learn nothing.
case closed, Durham it is
There are a lot less Edinburgh people on here, and even so, people do like to say their uni is the best without considering why they're recommending it to a specific person.

Well I can't say too much for other universities, but I would expect that the "community spirit" at Durham is second to none. Even Oxbridge, as their colleges are academic based (ie. you get taught within your college) and so you don't get out as much. Durham colleges are so much more welfare and social - based institutions which makes a college feel more like "home" than Oxbridge colleges which are just glorified boarding schools
Oh, and to the OP: Edinburgh's lovely, but I'd go for Durham personally: but think about which course would suit you more, there must be some differences there that could swing the balance.

Durham sounds like it's got the best atmosphere but Edinburgh sounds like the course is more suited to you. Why not let the teaching decide. If you go to http://www.qaa.org.uk/reviews/default.asp Then you can see independant academic standards reviews by the Quality Assurance Agency for every institution and course in existance in the UK.
