    And which one has the most number of on-site accomodation places available? I love big campus-universities where you really get the community feeling. From what I've seen so far Nottingham is at the top of the list: a big campus with over 7000 beds available on it.

    You tend to lose the 'community feeling' as the population increases, take China, for example. You'd be better off looking for a smaller campus if you want that.

    Well by community feeling I actually mean the fact that everything is on campus: you live there, you study there, do sports etc. So it's like living in a big community.

    It's probably Cambridge - they have 11,786 undergraduates and at least that number of beds available (since all undergraduates are required to live on campus, and some postgrads do that as well). Of course with the collegiate system it avoids feeling too big as the community that you live with is much smaller.

    Wish me good luck in getting into Cambridge then haha. Yeah I saw they had lots of beds by the way but it's not a campus-university is it? I saw it was kinda spread around.

    By the way since I'm here can I ask whether you know if the IELTS must be done before the deadline and thus sent with the application? Cambridge deadline (given that I'd give it a chance) is close.

    Yes I know Keele but thanks for the info . They have about 4000 beds, according to the Complete University Guide. Not all undergrads live there and it's not the best in the leagues but it sure does look like a nice place. What do you think of Nottingham uni? The campus looks quite big as well and they have double the number of beds available.

    edit: ok lol but I just looked at the fact that Nottingham has way more undergrads so yeah doesn't matter.

    Yeah it's kind of strange compared to other places - it's basically a campus university that happens to have a city running through it, different colleges have different feelings...

    The language requirements are always part of your conditional offer - so you just have to do it by the August before you start university; you don't need to do it before you actually apply. Do read their requirements carefully! I know someone who missed an offer to read maths at Trinity College because he did a different language qualification that they didn't accept...

    Well Cambridge a good place, it may not be a campus university but it doesnt need to be its just a nice place to live, so relaxed and kind of reminds me of begin very vintage, everyone just uses bikes to get around.

    Plus the different colleges at Cambridge uni makes you feel like its a mini campus if you know what I mean.

    My cusion just graduated from there this year

    Thanks I really appreciate your infos! And I have another doubt: if I'm applying for a law course the LNAT test must be submitted with the application, right?

    No, Cambridge is a city with a university inside it. You seem to not understand the concept of a 'campus university' and the fact that the majority of the people who live and work in Cambridge are unconnected to the university.
