Our SU is filthy on the outside. Not so bad on the inside!

My dilemma - Durham, York, UCL or St Andrew's for English???
Durham! A lot of people have the Durham/York dilemma. St Andrew's is too isolated, UCL is too Londony, but Durham and York are both really nice. I couldn't decide between them til I went on the Open Days. The York course seemed to have less contact with the tutors, and the campus is all 60s. Plus it's a campus, not right in the centre of town like you would be here. The actual format of the open days also helps - staying over in Durham shows you just what it'd be like being a student, and it's so fun! PM me if you want to ask about the course (though I have a feeling I've told you about it at some point in the past anyway, so I won't start rabbiting on about it again...)

You remember me!

(Definitely more brownie points for Durham as Durhamites are lovely.)

Is the city made of concrete? No. Is the campus? Yes :p:

Hello. can somebody please tell me why durham is so good? i am really split between durham, where i have applied to st chads for economics, and UCL. I know that the course is better at UCL, but i am not won over by London. I come from a village, and think i will find london too daunting and impersonal. I did like Durham due to its size, but i dont really know what else it has going for it. Can somebody please help me out??
Heya,

I was in the same boat when I applied– Liked the course at UCL but couldn't picture myself living in London.

I'm from a tidgy village and have found Durham ideal… it's small so you get to know the place very quickly, and it's really easy to get into country-like surroundings. The college system makes for a great community-feel, it really is a big difference to non-college based universities which can feel very impersonal (I know from comparison with my sister who's at Warwick). Also, the nightlife isn't bad at all, plenty of bars plus college ents, and there's a handful of clubs which do cater for a variety of music tastes, though you have to be strategic in order to escape the cheese! :-)

Newcastle is really close if you want city entertainments. This week I went out there for a night out for the first time since I got here really, so it's taken a while for me to branch out, but it's very easy to get to and there's certainly a lot of clubs… I've been there for gigs a couple of times too, which were really good…

Sidenote to durhamites: Newcastle Jazz Cafe! Literally round the corner from the railway station. It's all little and bohemian-feeling and funky. Excellent live music… It's quite cheap, and if you go there before a certain time of night you get free food with the entry price, or something. Obviously popular so it's crowded, but definitely worth going to.

Is it actually supposed to be a jazz cafe?? Because Jun-Ho and Richard said they played some 'interesting' non-jazz type stuff... That clearly, does not rock! I'd be ticked if I went to newcastle for jazz and got something else!

Yeah it wasn't jazz when we went, but only because it was a one-off fundraising event by people from newcastle uni. The music was still really good! And vaguely jazz-like, in places.

So I'm yet to go there when the usual music is being played, but I assume the jazz stuff is good, it being such a cool place…

is this the jazz club on Pink Lane/Road/Street...? If so then it is brilliant. And if not, the one on Pink Something is really good. I think it's Lane. *feels embarrassed over own lack of local knowledge*
