    I apologize in advance for the long post, I just really need the help :/

    I am currently coming to the end of my International Baccalaureate course, with the prediction of 32 points (which hopefully, fingers crossed I will get), and have also chosen to do Marketing and Psychology at university as a joint honors. I've not finalised my first and insurance choices yet on ucas, as I am still waiting for Stirling to reply (which hopefully will be a conditional).
    I have ranked my universities according to the figures on unistats.direct.gov.uk (conditional offer, job prospect after, and student satisfaction) as well as where the university is and how I felt the university was on the open day. They are as the following:
    - (1st) Stirling
    - (insurance) Lincoln
    - Keele
    - Sunderland

    But recently, I came across some worrying posts about some the universities I chose, and realized I actually have no clue on how student life really is. This is why, I am asking anyone who knows anything about how the student life (nightlife, accommodation, student relations, professors, etc) to shed some light. Thank you x

    I have Stirling and Keele as choices,and am stuck on which one to firm out of those two. What did you think of Keele on the open day? I haven't been to an open day there :/

    What course are you doing? I found that Keele was very welcoming and the greenery was lovely, but for me, i just thought it was a little recluse. It's sort of it's own town, and doesn't really accommodate for wanted to go to cities on a night out. In short, I thought of it as a suburban university. That's what Stirling had over Keele for me.

    I;m doing psychology, yeah thats the only draw back for me, but the course is better at Keele, so I shall see. Thanks for the info on Keele though, I'm glad it has a welcoming feel too, as thats what I liked about Stirling
