    Hey everyone!
    I'm just about ready to send my UCAS application off for my five choices of general policing degrees but I thought it would be a good idea to find out about the nightlife at each of them... so if anyone is a student at any of the following university's then please give me a heads up on what the nightlife is like and how you find the university itself! These are my five university choices in order:
    • Staffordshire (stoke-on-trent campus)
    • Buckinghamshire
    • Birmingham City
    • West London
    • Wolverhampton

    Thank you in advance to anyone that gives me any information!!

    At Stoke, there are 2 nightclubs on campus and it's a 10 minute bus ride to Hanley which has all the club's. It's got some of your basic chains like walkabout and others only place I know about

    I should imagine West London would have a good range of night life, being in... y'know... London

    But surely not as good as High Wycombe?

    Oh that sounds brill! Personally thought Stoke would have had a crappy nightlife but I feel much better knowing that there's actually quite a bit there! Thanks!

    Birmingham will probably have the best nightlife out of all of those. London is also decent, but you'll have to factor in the cost of going out in London (substantially higher - this is the land of the £5 pint) and that you'll be a moderate distance out from the centre.

    West London will be the best if you have money and are willing to travel a bit. I'd imagine Birmingham will be 2nd and a lot easier to navigate but am speaking on assumption, not experience!

    I definitely think Birmingham has the best nightlife out of those options. Birmingham City itself, I have to say, doesn't have an amazing campus when compared to other universities. However, their courses and staff are amazing, and the city overall is incredible.

    There are a lot of opportunities there, and things like the German Market comes around in Christmas, you have the bullring with shopping stores, Birmingham Literature Festivals, concerts at the Symphony Hall, theatres - and it's all at a pretty decent price!

    Stoke probably has the least exciting nightlife. It's pretty quiet up there, not really a good place for city life.

    London is the most expensive out of the five without a doubt. I would consider it to be pretty good, but honestly, it's freaking expensive there! You wouldn't be able to go out often considering you would be a student.

    Definitely recommend my city, Birmingham. I've lived here all my life, so I'm aware of all the things they offer - I'm even surprised sometimes when I find out there are things that I actually missed! There's so many things to do here. You really start to take the city for granted when you always have these opportunities available.

    For example, I went on an open day to Keele and Worcester and found out about the lack of city life there. Keele didn't even have ONE cinema!

    Thanks for all the info, definitely making Birmingham sound like the place to be! However out of the three that I have visited so far (London, Birmingham and Buckinghamshire) Bucks definitely has the best course for me and the best value for money so fingers crossed, the nightlife will be pretty decent too. Thanks for all of your info though!
