    I applied for Mathematics and I am going to pick the Uni of Bath and the Uni of Southampton as my firm and insurance but one thing that I wanted to know was if there is diversity at Bath since this can have a big impact on which uni I pick. I am Kurdish and I live in London where there is a lot of diversity but I don't know if the same goes for unis outside of London.

    Put it this way, in my final year the SU team were 5 white british men. :rolleyes:

    But actually generally it is somewhat diverse- and there are a lot of societies etc. It is nowhere as near as diverse as somewhere like London obviously and I can't remember specifically meeting anyone Kurdish during my time there. But it is an open and friendly place and you will feel comfortable there I'm sure.

    I guess the only thing is the lack of people from your specific background and whether it is important for you to socialise with Kurdish people as well?

    I'm Kurdish but from Turkey and it would be nice if there were people from my ethnic group but it isn't something major. Have you met any Turkish people at Bath? I saw 2 when I came to the open day but not at the uni.

    Great pubs.

    Good Bars.

    Ok clubs.

    It's a compact city so you can visit numerous places in a single night.

    Like anywhere else, if you meet the right people you will have a great time. A really great time.
