The title is pretty self explanatory. Inspired by the 'Unis You Hated' thread, I thought a little injection of positivity might be a nice idea. Which Unis did you love and why?

Nottingham!! Because it was beautiful and green and my course looked amazing (history) and the accomodation (catered) all looked really nice... and everything :love:

I knew I loved it after just half an hour on campus, it just clicked with me!

I loved Birmingham when I went to have a look around. The Campus was beautiful, and my course looked great. Just a shame they rejected me this summer...

Newport, just absolutely gorgous campus to live in and new, high tech people to study Film Production in. The course is on par with the one at AUCB (which I also loved). The people were lovely, the accomodation amazingly cheap and you get gym membership in your hall cost. The place is miles away from where I live so great for me.

Will be very dissappointed not to get a offer.

Oxford and KCL are my favourite Unis that I'm applying too

Obviously Oxford comes first but I adore the course at KCL (for History) and it's in a lovely part of London.

Huddersfield - really liked the layout of the campus with the pond and canal and bridge and new buildings. Really liked the accommodation in the middle of the countryside and woods. I kind of wish I'd gone there actually. I think it might have been my favourite out of all the ones I went to, not sure why I didn't apply there in the end.

Birmingham City, Edgbaston Campus (not Perry Barr) - just felt at home

Swansea - because it was just across the road from the sea.....really loved that. The accommodation was bad though, and the buildings looked grey and run down.

Visited a friend who went to Nottingham Trent - Loved the city and the accommodation and the Uni building itself looked very nice.

Bangor - the landscape and University buildings were amazing but I couldn't handle how isolated the place is.

I go to Hertfordshire - small town but it just feels 'right' to me. And it's a good enough distance from home so it won't take too long to go back if I ever want to.

Nice to hear your responses

My favourite was definitely Oxford, I just felt so at home there (I live pretty close and my mum went there so I visit the city pretty often). The course is superb, the accommodation is beautiful, I got on really well with the people there and there's just so much culture and history. It's also the cheapest one of my choices!

Manchester- ok, several people seem to hate Manchester, but I really liked it. The sciences seemed like they have lots of contact time, I liked how the campus didn't feel isolated from the city, and of course there's a huge arts/music scene in Manchester I didn't get to see the accommodation however

Sheffield- the halls are placed in a beautiful leafy, clean area and the biology builiding is one of the nicest (for once!).

Leicester- Once again, student accommodation is in a nice area, most of the campus is pretty, it has large green spaces and one of the JCRs just looked fantastic. Again, I haven't seen the city centre.

Every open day I went to went quite well.

My favorite was probably Portsmouth closely followed by Brighton.

Cambridge :love:

I lived there for three years and completely fell in love with the place. The general feel of the City is wonderful, I love the fact that it's small and can be navigated on foot, by bike or on the Cam if you so wish. I spent many a glorious afternoon just sitting with my feet in the grass, reading a book and soaking up the atmosphere. That's before you even look at the architecture, collegiate setting and great facilities.

I stayed there for 2 nights at a Summer School, and LOVED it! I totally felt at home, the people and staff I met were lovely, campus was lovely, and accommodation was acceptable! Ha, so totally agree with you on this one.

I liked Leicester, it felt compact, and community-like. But I didn't like the surrounding areas as much...

Hmm.
