    It's very pretty, it's basically york on a smaller scale, a castle and a cathedral, pebbled streets.

    Nightlifewise, there's not a lot going on, couple of clubs, few bars, some good shops as well. Not too expensive.

    If you like small then you'll like it. The university is on the river that runs through the town, basically in the center.

    Lincoln is nice
    Thanks for describing the place to me! I just only been to the uni and not into the city as I said before. I will go to Lincoln during the summer to visit the city.

    The campus is very modern to like Hertfordshire and other new universities.

    You seem to know a lot about Lincoln. Do you live there?

    While you maybe want to go to a rural uni, you still want to go somewhere good and most of the above mentioned (apart from Durham and Lancaster) arent the best. Thinking about it most good unis seem to be in big cities like London, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Bristol etc. Off the top of my head maybe Exeter, its not rural but quite quiet.

    Lincoln isn't really too big - it has all the amenities of a city but then it is set in lovely countryside. Its very nice there and not too busy.

    Ok then, I thought you lived there in the first place, as you were very familiar with the place. I'm actually looking forward going there for uni! I'm not doing Games Computing though, as it involves loads of programming.

    It seems that the degree course (Games Computing) is quite popular in that uni out of all the computing course. During the open day computing tour and talk, most people were interested in Games Computing. I went on another forum, and lots of people applied to Games Computing out of all the computing courses, the second most popular subject seems to be Computer Information Systems. Not much people attended the computing tour/talk though. I guess the computing courses are not that popular in the university. The university is good at journalism and media and those sorts of subjects. I don't think it's a doss though, as I can imagine it being very hard.

    St Andrews is in a little town, if you'd consider Scotland.

    And Exeter, also, is fairly rural. The campus is gorgeous.

    I'd say Kent has the best of both worlds...not too far from the city (Canterbury) but also in very rural surroundings.

    Parts of St Andrews were much closer than that to the sea (The School of Economics for example), however it's not a campus university and so it probably doesn't count.

    I'd say that about Royal Holloway too, except that it's near London rather than Canterbury.
