    I'm about to start an electrical and electronic BENG at university and have accepted an offer from both universities and have a choice to choose between the two.
    I am having trouble choosing between the two. I have heard nothing but great things about each university.
    I know that the university of Nottingham is campus based and outside the city so I'll be around students all the time whereas Leeds in close to the city which is nothing special for me as I'm from London.
    In terms of social life, research, facilities, social environment and lecture quality and availability outside of lecturers.
    Any advice/ opinion will be appriciated.
    If you have any friends whom go to either univerty, let me know who they like it and what they think about it.

    I have about a week left till I have to choose.

    Thanks.

    During term time I feel like students outnumber every other human being in Leeds (untrue I know, but seriously there are those from Uni of, Beckett, College of music and college of art, and kinda trinity but they're a bit further out)

    I'd say Leeds is kind of the best of both worlds. I wouldn't call it a city university, nor would I call it a campus uni, it's somewhere in between. If you've ever visited Newcastle, their university is all over the city, where-as Leeds is all in one place, so on campus 99.99% of people you will see will be students! But it's very central to the city, so you also have the benefit of having anything you could ever need really close.

    I'd say Leeds is very good for the social side, anyone who comes to visit from other universities always comments on our social scene so
