    I want to study politics and Durham is my first option, it simply seems perfect for me (I'm very focused on my studies and don't mind the nightlife) but you can't really count on getting into Durham so, what other Unis are like Durham? by that I mean, with a really academical, political atmosphere and where most people put their degree first? Is Bath like that? Thanks

    It's a pity you didn't get any answer,so far.From my pov the closest to Durham are StAndrews and York.All of them have the same university-town concept and good national and global reputation.
    Hope that helps.Good luck

    I don't know if this is too late for you, but I've visited Durham and Warwick and they had a very similar atmosphere - relaxed and academic at the same time, very friendly, lots of 'non-laddish' social activities - I'll be putting Durham as my firm and Warwick as my insurance due to their similarities despite one being non-campus and one being campus. Both unis are not to large so you would have ample opportunity to meet likeminded people to have academic conversation/laughs with. Hope this was of some help
