    I am trying to find out some information for a friend of mine in Greece - his son wishes to study medicine and they are looking at the possibilities for him in the UK. I personally am based near Leeds and so they are initially having a look at universities in the north (Leeds, Manchester...). I see from the league table they are midway down the line but the south of England costs are too high. Can anyone tell me how they rate the courses in Leeds and/or Manchester and which they all recommend for student life, perhaps also for Greek students... Thanks in advance for any help :-)

    The league table rankings don't matter. I wouldn't pay any attention to it at all. It doesn't give you any good information about the quality of teaching, or student life, or anything like that.

    He can also study for free in Scotland, since he's from the EU.
