    Want traditional go for durham, want contemporary go for warwick, warwick's got a pretty promising upcoming startup scene.
    Upcoming startup scene? What do you mean? Does it have a centre for helping people who want to make them? Or what? I'm glad you mentionned this, please tell me more.

    I don't think this thread is suitable for your query. Drama and theater doesn't fit in with a thread about engineering, Physics and maths.
    I think he might mean drama as an extracurricular activity...? In which case I'd recommend him to read on the websites of each uni about their drama facilities.

    I did, and yeah i have done, but the uni's are always going to try and make it seem better than it actually is. I was just wondering if anyone knew more about it here.

    You have the Warwick Incubator which works like any other incubator except its student-run http://www.warwickincubator.com/, then you have Warwick entrepreneurs which promote entrepreneurship, arranges start-up competitions, connects students to startups and bring in entrepreneurs as speakers etc. http://www.warwickentrepreneurs.co.uk/
    Then you also have university-led projects such as Warwick Ventures which turns research projects into startups, and WBS and WMG, two top institutions which promotes entrepreneurship and innovation in different ways such Warwick Racing, arranging entrepreneurial events at our premises in the Shard etc.

    Examples of Warwick startups:
    https://fanbytes.co.uk/

    I'm sure you've also been in Forbes and Huffington, go and be a prick somewhere else.

    And here's what you might get at Durham https://www.dur.ac.uk/careers/s/ent/ and here's a website similar to one posted for Warwick. You could also directly compare them using metrics like this and this. It seems Warwick's scene is a bit bigger and has more support, which doesn't surprise me. Durham is more the university of big graduate schemes than the university of big enterprise in my experience.

    Actually, judging from your opening post I shouldn't have been this diplomatic in my contributions to this thread. Bluntly, Durham is crap for this sort of thing, the main problem being its geographic location.

    To clarify I like Durham for what they do, but they are also disadvantaged by having their b-school in stockton and not on central campus like Warwick, less synergies will be created when you have to go for 30 mins to go to the business school.

    Yeah absolutely. In fact it's actually split between Durham and Stockton which just makes things worse.

    In the sense that it at least has some central facilities yes. In the sense of not being a confusing mess, no. There have been recent proposals to roll back activity from the Stockton campus, including the medical school.

    Thanks a lot! Well, too late for me now, haha. But an eye opener nontheless.
