    In my imagination:

    A red-brick college town filled with parks, libraries and coffee shops. Occasional club and pub for going out. Loads of different activities, like going to the cinema, bowling and ice skating. Nice landscape set in the hills.

    Complete freedom to study whatever you want, like a liberal arts degree but with more focused modules (i.e not being limited to pure humanities).

    Exams/Coursework being regular, and therefore no need for a huge exam season that ruins the experience. Workload to remain constant and exams to be conducted electronically, rather than written.

    Degrees cost-free and with those boringly long holidays being used to attend summer schools around the world. And cheap studio accommodation.

    Oh and an eternal sunset...
    You do that, you do that

    KCL or Swansea. On the one hand KCL is so close to the Ben and Jerry's store but then on the other hand Swansea's so close to the beach

    I have an offer at my dream university but my imagined dream university would have good pastry shops and have a focus on breadth in the course - I want to be able to compare Chaucer and McEwan, or Romantic poetry and rap music!

    Heidelberg
    My Dad works for a company with head office in Heidelberg so I've been there once. I thought it was a really nice town. I once asked a German teaching assistant about it and all she had to say was that it was full of American businessman and Irish bars!

    As for my perfect Uni... I'm really not sure. One that was free, gifted with better weather than England and still got me a qualifying English law degree would be ideal.
