    Birmingham's a lovely campus, so is Keele. On the other hand, I know Liverpool is scattered around the top part of Liverpool city centre and the accommodation is a long way away from it. Nottingham's got lovely old buildings on campus, but the med school isn't, and Birmingham med school is a really old building!

    Those are just the ones I've been to see

    Not sure about how close the accommodation is, but King's is very old and has gorgeous buildings.

    ^Guy's campus is awesome. Halls are really close to it and it has a nice sheltered feeling once you get inside the grounds. It's like busy, usual London outside, but then inside it's people relaxing in the middle on the grass, and you are surrounded by classic looking buildings on one side, then the glass front of New Hunts on the other.

    But with Medicine, I think you will be travelling to the Waterloo campus sometimes too. Granted, it's not really that far away, but still...

    BSMS is a combination of Brighton and Sussex Campuses (which are practically over the road from each other). Sussex's (where most of the teaching is) is beautiful, it's the only University campus surrounded by a nature reserve in the country.

    Manchester is a "campus" university - though it has a busy main road running through it, only one of the buildings looks like a castle and there's little in the way of greenery...

    Remember, you'll only be at your actual university for the first two years of the course. The remaining 3 years will be spent in hospitals spread over a relatively large area, some of which you'll have to commute to and others you'll have to live at while you're on placement. So choosing where to study medicine based on trees and castles is probably a bit silly...

    LEEDS. I literally walk a minute to the lecture halls, a minute to the union. Town is about ten minutes walk away, not too great but the union is amazing, loooads of choice in terms of shops.

    Depends where you go. At UEA you spend time on campus every week (unless you're on a placement) every year of the course.

    Nah, we don't tend to go to Waterloo (although a small number of SSC projects send you there).

    And to re-iterate - Guy's is a lovely campus, and as long as you pretend that's all the university is (which is what we medics tend to do), then it's right on the money. However if you wish to betray Guy's and socialise with non-medics, the campuses are spread out a fair bit.

    It's a campus, but the entirety of the medical school is in the Queen's Medical Centre, which is just over the road.

    Are there any Medics sports teams?
    Everyone's discouraging me to apply to King's since everybody gets rejected from my school. (I'm international)
    They say that King's looks into every exam you've taken.

    Of course, GKT is a London school, it still has it's own union.
