i have options to study masters in the UK, in these cities:
- Kent(Canterbury)
- Edinburgh (Merchiston)
- Brighton (Moulsecoomb)
- Paisley
- Bournemouth (Talbot)
-* Dublin. not in UK, but i did not receive an acceptance from them yet .

which do you recommend, in terms of : safety, quality of living, good weather(not windy). also a tolerant community (i'm Arab , male) it does not matter if there is a muslim community or not. just not a lot of hostilities towards Arabs is perfect.

I can only give you advice on Canterbury but it is a really nice area, if I didn't live here then I would probably apply for Kent but I want to move away. I don't know exact statistics about safety of the campus but I haven't heard of any news on issues with it, I've only heard about how safe it is Good weather... well we moved from the north of england (Durham) in 2008 and one of the promises my parents gave me was that the weather was better! so this would apply in comparision to Edinburgh. But really, in reality it's not much different. In the summer it is hotter down here but it is still cold in winter, however we don't get as much snow on average, as for wind I'm not sure!
As for being an Arab male, Canterbury is constantly full of tourists visiting for the day etc. and I'd say Canterbury appears tolerant of different religions etc. in everyday life. There is a lot of multi-culture and a Mosque nearby
The city is really nice and a beautiful place
I hope this helps a little
