    I looked at Bath and absolutely loved the city however the campus just wasn't lively enough.
    Whereas I loved the University of Manchester area, but wasn't quite as thrilled by the general area. I'm not passing over a university due to this though- I'm definitely applying, and at the moment it looks like it will be my first choice if I'm accepted

    Awesome
    I'm from Bristol, which is pretty close to Bath, and I've never been to the uni (too close to home!) but the town is infested with tourists :sadnod: It's a good uni though, especially if you like extra-curricular sport, and I think it's quite good for engineering as well. Probably the biggest annoyance about the campus is that it's on the edge of Bath, so there's a bit of a trek every time you want to go elsewhere, whereas Manchester is on the outskirts of the city centre, which suits me much better.

    Damn those tourists! Yep, I'm hoping to do Chemical Engineering which I've heard it's pretty good for.

    I'm guessing you lived in halls first year? Do you mind me asking where you stayed? Yesterday I visited the accommodation in Fallowfield because that was the only thing up for viewing. Do you have any idea what people's thoughts are on the City halls? I'm not sure I can be bothered with the travelling every morning (I'm lazy I know! ) and there doesn't seem to be a massive difference in price anyway

    What's sport like at Manchester? I didn't even think to look at that yesterday!

    Sorry for all the questions btw!

    Loooads of info on accommodation here http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2091577 I was in Oak House :yep: City halls seem to be a bit like marmite - some people enjoy them, others complain that they're too quiet. Transport from Fallowfield is great though - it's the busiest bus route in Europe.

    There are 43 sports clubs at Manchester, plus three uni owned sports centres (Armitage, Sugden, Aquatics) so you'll be well provided for www.sport.manchester.ac.uk/athletic-union

    I like questions :yes:

    Manchester is the best city in Britain as far as I'm concerned, and for students and student life it's even further ahead. The University has a great reputation, even so for my area (politics) but...it's not in my top 2.

    I'm a Mancunian and I kind of feel like I wouldn't get the full Uni experience staying so close to home, and it'd be nice to discover a new City.

    Still, it's definitely one of my five!

    It varies by department, and whether you're a definite yes / no or a maybe.

    I believe that they only invite those to interview for physics who they are almost certain that they're going to make an offer to, so you can feel quite hopeful

    Really? Do you mind me when you sent your application off? Its just I'm applying for the exact same course, and I'm really impatient!

    EDIT: Sorry, just seen you've already answered that! I would wish you luck, but not if we're in direct competition...

    I've already got my A Levels though so that might be why it's a bit early?

    Well we both might get an offer!

    Maybe, either that or you're just an epic applicant . Lets hope so, maybe we'll be seeing each other this time next year! Is Manchester your first choice?

    Hahahahahaha I don't believe this! My Dads just come upstairs and told me a letter came whilst I was at work tomorrow! Open it up, and I've been invited to an interview on the exact same day! We'll probably see each other!

    It probably will be as I doubt I'll get an offer from Cambridge (and I'm not sure I really want to do Natural Sciences anyway) is it yours?
