University Life in Edinburgh/Nottingham/Southampton?Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
You'll be hard pressed to have the chance to feel bored.
Obviously Southampton is in the southeast of England which means you'll get some of the less wet weather in the UK it also has a micro climate so it is usually a bit warmer than the rest of the UK.
There are many clubs pubs and bars in soton bed ford place and London road have the most but there is also a ministry in leisure world where there is also a cinema.
In the centre of soton you'll find your usual fare of shops like hmv game top shop etc mostly in west quay.
If sport is your thing there are loads of gyms a ski centre and even a climbing wall.

I am interested in studying Medicine at university. I'm currently looking to go to open days at Edinburgh, Nottingham and Southampton. No doubt i'll find out more of what it's like to be there when I go on the Open days, but i was wondering whether anyone could tell me what it's like to live in one of these places?
I'm currently a student at Edinburgh, I study Sustainable development so I cant tell you much about the medicine degree at Edinburgh except the medical students are taught in the hospital with state of the art tech and most of the lecturers are surgeons etc/ It is extremely competitive to get into so make sure you have some sort of medical experience!
Edinburgh uni has 4 student unions to choose from around the campuses, 2 of them are found on the george square campus - teviot (oldest student union in the world) and potterow. We have a huge sport complex, the gym has been updated and we have a commonwealth pool, there are hundreds of sports clubs to choose from. The University always has events on, and the nightlife is pretty good too. There is lots of support available if you need it, there are tonnes of free 'stress-busting' activities during exam diets.
The city itself is really great, some amazing shops and architecture. But, there are always lots of tourists. In summer lots of the students will have BBQs in the meadows - a beautiful park. Accommodation can be pricey however, the flats after student accommodation can be anywhere from £300 - 550 + a month. The house/flat market is extremely competitive, thats why its so pricey, that and its the capital of Scotland.
The weather is a mixed bag really, you can get all sorts of weather in one day. But in summer on a good day its beautiful and Edinburgh has an amazing christmas market too/
