    People often rate Oxbridge as having the prettiest buildings, followed by Durham perhaps. I thought Nottingham fared well on this front. But Edinburgh looks amazing, and on a big scale. I can't believe it doesn't get spoken about more, it easily matches Oxbridge for beauty.

    Cambridge did it for me, but having studied at Warwick for 3 years a Tesco probably would have impressed me too...

    I think Bath is one of the best-looking cities... Can't wait to go there in September!

    Aberdeen university is rather nice in terms of aesthetics. Keele university is quite pleasant simply due to its greenery.

    Utrecht's main buildings are a lovely example of Dutch architecture of the period, suitably adapted.

    Greenwich in London by the Thames is absolutely stunning. The buildings are beautiful.

    Oxford, haven't visited Cambridge but I'm sure they're just as grand.

    Sheffield and LSE have a few really nice ones as well.

    Bristol looks lovely on their pictures.

    Grenwich is rather lovely building but it's had a lot of negative reviews in some departments but a degree is what you make of it

    Greenwich inherited the Royal Naval College and the tradition that comes with it. I still say Edinburgh is the only university that has buildings on a wide scale to match Oxbridge. The London Business School and the European Business School are fantastic.
