    As I come from France I don't know much about the differences between british unis as in France they're all supposed to be the same. I've got unconditional offers from Saint Andrews(ancient histoory and art history),Durham(geography), York(environment) and King's (hist-geo). I am inclined to go to Saint Andrew sor Durham but I really don't know which is the best, the frendliest or the most fun aor the best employement prospect.Saint And is lovely but I'm afraid I might get bored after a few years but Durham's course seems great even if they didn't put me in the college I wanted! Thank you for anything you can tell me.

    Was Saint Andrews much less good before the Prince went there?

    My geog teacher went to Durham (for geog obv) and i'm going to be applying there next year. From what i've heard/read it's a great place but the one downside (well its a downside for some) is the apparent lack of nightlife i.e. clubs.

    Hey Nissa, all these Universities are very well respected; in the group just below Oxbridge. All great places to live, but very different (St Andrews is tiny place, Kings - assuming you mean Kings College, London - is in the middle of the liveliest city in Europe.


    P.S. Do I assume from your userid that you are feom Nice? Spent a few days there recently; great place. Loved the restaurant 'Le 22 Septembre'

    st andy's is lovely. i got unconditional for there to read geography, but i chose to stay in edinburgh for my undergrad and masters to save moolah.

    i also applied to, and visited durham, but wasn't too keen to go there. some of my high school friends did their geography degree there; i guess the department there is quite good and reputable.

    if you choose st andy's, edinburgh is only 1.5 hrs by train. prince wills sometimes comes down to party.

    durham is near to newcastle...which is famous for its social scene. durham itself is quite small, quite historic.

    since i'm scottish, i'd say, go to st andy's!!! (and not just because wills is there!).
