    Hello,
    I studied in Southampton last year and I am now looking for a master somewhere else in the UK. I really much enjoyed the english educational system compared to mine (French). Now I'm asking myself where should I go study in the UK? My goal is to stay after the master and permanently (well at least for a few years) live in the UK. This means I have to find a city in the UK that is fun, young, and where there are JOBS! . I need a vibrant city. So, instead of googling "best cities UK" and reading about the telegraph ranking on which city is best to grow old I'm asking you, what would be a top 5 best city to live in the UK?

    Critera:
    - Job friendly (and by job I mean in the marketing / PR / communications / media industries)
    - Fun, big, vibrant, just like you would picture let's say any european capital.
    - Young but not completely run by students

    This was a problem in Southampton, it's not a big city, it's mostly a student (undergraduate) city. This means there isn't much to do when they all leave, and job perspectives are low. Especially in the communications industry.

    Thanks a lot!

    Birmingham is one of the youngest cities in Europe and Solihull was voted 2nd best place to live in the UK, so there.

    But not such a centre for media & marketing as per OP prime requirement. Outside London, Manchester is the next largest centre for media & marketing in the UK with the major agencies having their largest regional offices there. TBWA, JWT, McCann, Havas, Mediacom, etc, etc.

    You don't need, and few have, a Masters for a successful marketing career. Best bet is to start your career.

    Hey there!

    Wooo- I agree with 'Wilfred Little'! Birmingham is a great city, its currently the most visited place in the UK by tourists, and most invested in city by China!
    I'm slightly biased, but I only moved here for university myself and stayed here after graduating.

    It's full of opportunity, job prospects, places to see and visit, great food & music scene for a social life, and tonnes of connections with it's perfect location in the middle of the country!

    But like I said, I'm biased! Worth checking out though!

    Watch this cool video about the city.
