    How did I know you were going to turn this into a 'my place is more scum-infested than yours' contest?

    Other places are irrelevant to the post(s) I made. However, naming a place worse than where I live does give my original post more substance.

    Move to where I live. 95% chav population, all ofthem pussies, yet there's still rapes, stabbings and armed robberies.

    And to top it off, I live in a village (well, collection of villages that thinks it's a city).

    It would be nice if everyone was friendly, but they're not. Say hi to someone and you'll get hell back. Be nice to someone and you're signing your own death warrant.
    Come on down 'ere to Somerset and South West. We be gert friendly down 'ere we do's. Well, gert lot friendlier than where you be coming from that'll be for sure! Ooo arr ooo arr ay! We be owning quite the few combine 'arvestors as well so have a gander around and we'll share some great ol' banter over a couple o' Blackthorn ciders. Oh and don't be gving them dairy cows any lairy looks while yous be 'eres, just have smiles all 'rounds I says!

    I know a Swede who disagrees. He said he much prefers the UK to Sweden. Not sure why exactly.
    As I said above, there are a number of Swedes who like British culture -- tv, books, music, food, the way people socialise, and the language.

    Quite a few people in this thread don't seem to know people like that exist!

    Northwards.

    Well I wish I was exaggerating, but somehow many here have the mindset that good things come to people who try and destroy others.

    Even worse, they pronounce bald as "bold". WHY?!

    Hi.

    I am a Swede, and I currently study in England.

    My advice is the following:
    Unless you get into Oxbridge or LSE; just dont. Don't go.

    Whatever you do you shouldn't go asking UK based students whether you should move from Sweden, and instead you should get a more balanced view from current Swedish students studying in the UK.


    The reason is that many people from the UK like to complain about their own country and seem to always think other countries would be a great place to move despite never taking into consideration the disadvantages of living there or the advantages of the UK. They fail to take into consideraiton that many people from abroad like UK culture and want to live in a more exiting and vibrant society.

    Maybe Scotland? that is a bit of an "english feeling"?

    Or should an average uni in Sweden or England?

    English still have got great loan deals, you only pay when you got money! Not
    before, but these good loan deals are only if you take a loan from the english gov, and i can do that cuz i'm an EU citizen :-)
    Scotland, in my view, for free, would be worth it if you had the will to go there and study at a average uni. Im not sure it would have an "english" feeling, as it is in Scotland, which definately feels different. Of course, there is still the UK feel to it. And I am also quite sure that there will be many students from England at Scottish unis too. (but I might be wrong).

    Paying 9.000 a year for a average uni in England, I suspect, is something you might regret. But depends! No one can tell you what is right for YOU. You are the one who has to decide in the end. We can only give you pointers based on our views and based (sometimes) on our experience.

    Whatever you do, think it through carefully and keep your options open. You could always apply two unis both in Scotland and England, as well as in Sweden.

    Thanks alot for a great message mate!

    Really appreciate it!

    Yeah true what u say!
    Scotland does have a number of good universities, i.e St Andrews and Edinburgh.

    I'm sure the weather is a lot like Sweden too.

    Speaking as a Scotsman, hell no. Speaking as a British citizen, just no.. Sweden > UK. Though, I understand that feeling of wanting to go somewhere else regardless of what anyone says.

    Good luck.
