Best party/social unis?Watch
I've applied to Aberwystwth, Portsmouth, Oxford Brookes & York St John (the latter 2 are unlikely as i just don't think they're really 'me'), but i'm not concerned about going through clearing to find a uni. I have BBB - on a gap year you see - and want to study American Studies or History.
I'm looking to form a punk-rock band when i get to uni and am also looking for a potential semester or year over in the States, so can anyone suggest potential unis that have a rather 'american esque' feel to them? I don't really know how to put it any other way than that.

I guess the point I'm getting at is that the majority of universities will allow you to meet new people and have new experiences. It's just how you want to meet those new people and gain those new experiences that will differ- so, through clubbing, or forming your punk rock band, or joining societies, or playing sports, whatever takes your fancy. Some universities will have a better clubbing scene, others will have loads of societies...
Sorry if I've misinterpreted your question, but I'm making more of a general statement than anything. In short, I don't think there IS a university with 'poor social life', if you're willing to put yourself out there!
No i totally see your point, its more what you make of it than where you actually go. Of course i'm bothered about the educational side of things (for 9k a year who wouldn't be?) but as my unis are near enough the same in that department, it's more about how i'll best fit in that i'm concerned about.
My friend who lives in London says the night life's great BUT its so diverse that you aren't really with students, whereas one of my friends who goes to Aber says its awesome because everyone's together in the clubs, rather than with a load of 40 year olds, so i guess that proves your point.
