My bro's at Queen Mary, and he had a shooting, two stabbings, and a ton of robbings on his road outside the campus when he was staying there.
I can't believe Nottingham is more ruff than Manchester or London O_o
i don't know if this is a joke or not.
Glasgow Uni is situated in pretty much the safest part of Glasgow, Caley and Strathclyde are both in the city centre which is much much worse, and even then, still not bad at all.
I've walked all across the city centre and west end at pretty much every time of the day and the closest I've ever come to trouble is when I said to my mate "makes ye proud, doesn't it?" when some ned had a union jack draped over his shoulders and he overheard me and thought I had insulted him. And all that amounted to was a "what did you say?"
That said, I'm not daft and avoid the East End and the far far south (pollock, basically) like the plague, which it is of course
I'd say Nottingham. The only person who I know who went there (well Nottingham Trent, but same city) got stabbed.
Wherever the OP turns up. His posts are dead boring.
I always find these 'fear of crime' things quite stupid.
Personally, I've spent a lot of time in the west end, city centre, east end and south side of Glasgow - during the day and at night. I've never had any problems. I can imagine this being similar for most people in every city in the country.
Every place has it's rough areas. Trust the bell-end that is the OP to quantify a city's usually incorrect (at least on TSR anyway) reputation to the university that is in said city.
school of hard knocks obv
Went to visit a mate at Queen Mary the other day, she lives in Bow. I thought it was very nice and east London was great (caught it during some good weather though). Obviously we only went to nice places but aren't all cities like that...avoid the nasty places and you won't get into trouble.
