    of my head I know

    Southampton has a really good clubing scene

    east london is in london so the clubing is the best !

    the other two I am not really sure about

    But remember its all about what you want to gain out of uni ?

    Out of that list purely on area I'd go for 2,1,4,3. Do you really want to live in Bedfordshire for 3 years?

    If you are leaving home for the first time, I'd pick somewhere that isn't really expensive to get back home to but somewhere far enough so that's its 'away from home'.

    Please help me to decide the college/university. I got offer for admission in BEng (EEE/Comp Engg) from University of Manchester, Cardiff University and Edinburgh University. Apart from these I am expecting offers from Imperial Col of London and York Univ as well.

    Please advise me which will be better (cost of education is the most important factor for me). Please rank these universities based on personal experiences & first hand knowledge.

    Thanks

    I cant say much for the first 3 but i do live near central lancashire, its in Preston, and to be honest, its not the best place in the world...i personally wouldnt go there....I have visited it once, and from what i could gather the accommodation isnt too great, and the town in general isnt...but i guess it depends what factors are important to you?? and the course??

    yeah ive heard that too, ive got a friend from preston and he also said not to go...

    well the courses im not too bothered about because theyre all really similar, its mainly the location and the atmosphere of places really.

    Well if its for the place and atmosphere I wouldn't suggest it, this area in general isn't anything special, hence why I'm moving away for uni....
