    Which would you choose, and more importantly, why?

    I've met/spoken to/heard of so many people choosing between these two universities. It's for a life sciences degree, btw.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks in advance if you've got a view.

    I can't say much about Bristol Uni, given that I study in Exeter, but I do live in Bristol and have done for my whole life.

    Personally, out of the two cities, I prefer Exeter. I like that it's less manic, less crowded, and has a quieter nightlife, not that there isn't plenty going on, it's just a bit less hectic.

    Student wise, I also prefer Exeter. Bristol seems to have a large population of "rahs" who are generally annoying as hell, both around town in the day and on nights out, a culture that thankfully doesn't really seem to exist down in Exeter.
