If Yes, Lemme Kno Wot Their Like, Thanks
I've never heared of Derby. Northampton College uni is not actually a university but a higher education college. I know somebody on media studies there and she never has much work do at all and she dosn;t have any exams.
I think academicaly its a bit of a dead end. The employment rate is well below the national average that place.
Do U Know If Its A Big Uni ?
Damn, I Wanna Go To A Uni, Its A Better Life Style
So Any One From Derby Uni ?
I live in Northamton (well about 5 mins from it) and it's a nice place.
Basicly the uni is nice. Yes it isn't an official uni it's a university collage and has it's degrees authorised by surrounding unis but the uni itself is a nice place. It's quite close to the town centre and is as pretty as a 30 year old building can be. The uni has a good business department though, my teacher studied there.
If you like large city life though DON'T come here. The town is close to the uni and has the highest concentration of bars in one place in the country (local fact!!!!!). I wouldn't use the word quiet to descibe the town but it's not on par with the likes of many other cities.
i live in derby. it's a really nice place to live (in the top 5 best places to live in the UK). it's quite a compact city and doesn't actually have a proper live venue, bar the small and often cramped (but amazing!) victoria inn. nottingham's about half an hour away by bus/car and is dead cheap to get to - it has a far better nightlife etc. derby is also really close to the peak district (you can be in hill country in less than an hour) and is a generally attractive city anyway. low crime rates as well.
i've got a place at derby uni but i'm not sure about moving away. is derby recognised for its forensic studies with psychology course anybody know? i went to the open day but it was very rushed and never had chance to talk properly to the staff.
i live near nthampton uni!!!!!! well bout half hour away...its not really really big cos it used to be a college! good facilties and its all spaced out on a big long rd!
i think its reps gettin better now that its getting bit more recognised.
northampton itself nice place, good shops n the the night life is relatively good. remember u is not too far from lesta as well n thats got real good shops n clubs!
derbys a lot worse than northampton! (uni wise) thats my opinion
another northamptonian here!! i dont know much about the uni cos i never go that side of town cos i live the other side out in the sticks...but northampton town centre, is (my personal opinion) a dump! the shops are crap, they are getting slightly better but then a lot of places are shutting down aswell. The nightlife...depends what you like. If you like bars and cheesy clubs the choice is pretty wide and they're all in the same area, pretty much the same street - im not convinced its got the highest concentration of bars in one place in the country though, theres not that many! If you like good music and a variety (aka indie/rock/old school cheese/soul/a good old mix - the top end of town is good...must mention the 'soundhaus' just in case u decide on northampton. If you like to shop head to Milton Keynes...longest shopping centre in the world! (thats longest not biggest) and good shops, only 20mins away. thats my 2 pennies worth anyway. sorry dont know anything about derby!
