I am an international student from India.
I will be doing business related undergraduate course like Finance or Business Eco. I am confused which universities I should choose . Currently I have chosen the following universities .
1. Kings London
2. City University London
3. University of Manchester
4. University Of Leeds
5. Lancaster University
Yes, academics is a main factor but I also want a university where student life , nightlife , social life is really awesome . I am also really really interested in sports especially football .I have also searched up loughborough university and University of Sheffield. But I don't know much about their Business school . Please let me know which all universities should I choose depending on academics , student life and sports . If you also have any other suggestions please let me know

I'd say out of those Leeds is probably the best choice, it has a name that's known internationally, it's in a major city so it will have good nightlife, living costs are low and it's a large, older university so lots of sports. I'd say it's also worth looking into Nottingham, Edinburgh and Bristol which also fit those descriptions.

Kings and City/Cass are respected but you also have to deal with the cost of living in London, Manchester and Sheffield have the international brand name but are not as highly ranked for business/economics as Leeds is, Lancaster isn't so well known internationally as far as I know and given the location I can't see it having much of a nightlife, Loughborough is great for sports people but it's apparently quite a dull place and again not as well known or highly ranked.

As an international student you should also think about travel to these universities as some will be a lot easier to access than others e.g. after you land you may need to take a 2 hour train with a couple of changes, and after a 10 hour flight that's probably not desirable.

Each year you're probably looking at £2,000 more for living costs and £3,000-5,000 more in tuition from what I remember.

Nationally it's the highest ranked in comparison for economics and in the middle for finance and business categories with Leeds and Lancaster being higher. Internationally I can't see many people knowing Lancaster compared to Edinburgh though.
