    Pick Durham! It's gorgeous little city and a degree from there is loved by employers!
    Its cheaper too. But Durham has weaknesses in certain subjects, which Bristol might be loads better at and vice versa, you'd have to look it up.

    It was a little joke. Hence the smile. And the complete lack of reference to crime statistics in that paragraph :confused:.

    Why did he get robbed ? What was he doing ?

    More to the point, getting robbed really isn't that bad:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/3538879.stm

    lmao,hello,do you not no anthing about nottingham

    its gun crime problem is horrendous

    yes but 95% of gun crime is related to gangs and drugs. Don't get involved, don't get shot

    As Joy said, it's all about drugs and crime - I can guarantee you that there's far more gun crime in London than in Nottingham, and it hasn't affected me at all.

    Some fool shot up a police van with an automatic rifle a couple of months ago. That only happened one or two miles from my house, but strangely I've never been a victim of crime.

    Nottingham's crime is no worse than any other major city's, and, as so many have said, as a student, you're not going to get mixed up with the wrong kind of people and in the wrong places.

    Unless you're just a complete idiot. Ahem.

    ill admit,theres no city in the country that has worse crime than london,ill admit that,but to idiotically say nottingham has "no" worse than ever other city when it quite obviously does is just a moronic statement by you

    and i didnt say i got caught up in gangland crime,im saying someone got shot dead down the road from me,and another one nearly got shot dead on faraday road(very near my areas),who eventually got shot dead in hyson green

    plus how is getting robbed twice=getting caught up in gangland?????

    most of the students in raleigh have got robbed or had trouble round ilkeston road are they allso stupid????

    I think saying most of the students on RP have been mugged/experienced crime is a vast overestimation of the truth. I don't know 1 single person who had any problems whatsoever last year, EXCEPT the person who left their groundfloor window open and was shocked to find their computer had disappeared... like duh.

    Despite what you say, Nottingham is no worse than other cities.

    hello... do you ever read my posts??? In my 2nd year I lived on Raleigh Park (House 6 - the one attached to the gate posts of Madison Court in case you don't believe me).

    Yes, this year I live in Dunkirk - the only reason I live where I do is because my friend owns the house, and it's also extremely convenient for the medical school.

    I would hardly call Dunkirk and Beeston the 'poshest' parts of Nottingham. However, they are 'reasonable', as is Lenton. I have friends who live on Ilkeston Rd, and some on Radford Boulevard, and none of them have had problems.

    Thanks to those of you who have offered (USEFUL!) comments. Yes, I realise there is some debate about crime stats, but I would really appreciate more advice about the matter in hand- the reps of the unis, and not just comments limited to Nottingham. I really couldn't care less about Peterborough or London- I'm not going there!

    I did quite like Bristol uni but I wasn't actually too keen on the city centre itself. If I did choose Bristol, I also wouldn't know which hall of residence to go for.
    My Durham offer is for St Chad's- looks and sounds very nice to be a part of.
    Cheers to those of you who have responded helpfully anyway.

    sorry to have 'taken over' your thread sparkly.

    However, I think you will find I have not lied once Andyreid. If that's all you can respond with, I think you'd be better keeping quiet.

    I shall not be replying about this again, as quite frankly I'm bored.

    You are such an idiot. Have you ever actually posted anything on this board that wasn't ****ging off Nottingham?

    Oh and please could you learn a little punctuation and grammar? God only knows how you got into University when you can't seem to write a proper sentence.
