Kent has a high number of international students (something like 23%) but I don't think a high proportion are asian.

At both Kings and Royal Holloway there seemed to be many more Asian people that the other univeristies I applied to, so I would suspect any of the London unis to have a large proportion.

Again, it was a sensible point so not sure why it was deleted, so I'll make it again! What does it really matter how many Asians are at any university? People are more than their skin colour, and most of us go to uni to learn!

I'm sure if I had made a post (or anyone else for that matter) that I wanted to go to a University where there were only 'white' people and asking peeps to tell me which unis had a lot of 'whites', this thread would have been deleted in a second!

Exactly, I am quite dispointed it was deleted, I assume Expression thought I an argument may happen. But the question does seem rather racist. I am sure if I made a thread "which uni has lots of whites" it would seem racist.

I believe a number of Asians go to Beijing University. Or to U of Tokyo. And so on.

Does that answer your asinine question?

Yes, I have been finding that several of my posts have been raptured away - but, in my case, I suppose for good reason .

No, it doesn't answer the question. They're not foreign students at those universities.

Ah, I did not realise that every Asian attending, say, Tokyo University is Japanese. Thank you for correcting me. :rolleyes:

And, as someone already mentioned, many Asians are not foreign in the UK, either. The OP seems to believe that foreign = Asian.

Is it really so hard to understand?

Not at all...you clearly know what the poster is asking, even though you choose to be pedantic about it. What is the point of bringing up Tokyo University when it's quite obvious s/he's asking about foreign students at British universities (foreign as in "not native to Britain", and specifically ethnic Asians).

In what way is there question 'asinine'?

Did you ever consider that maybe this person is looking for a university where there will be a proportion of people that speak their primary language because they are not completely confident in their English skills. Or maybe that they're self concious and worried about not fitting in. Or that maybe they would like atleast a small proprotion to have the same interests/religion/hobbies/habits, as these things differ no matter where you go in the world.

Obviously, every uni in this country is going to have a predominantly english student population and so people of all races are going to mix. This person probably just wants the assurance that they are not going to feel alone and will always have someone to talk to that is in a similar position to them.

What Ive posted could be completely wrong and this person may only want to socialise with asian people, but you dont know that. Why even bother posting if you're not going to try and be constructive, you just waste everyone's time.

Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, mid land uni's, Luton, Thames Valley, London uni's (e.g. Royal Holloway, Queen Mary), Bristol.

Also uni's in small and/or big cities have lots of Asians.

I guess that's what happens when you make yet another thread with just one word in the body!

If you don't specify, how can you expect tailored 'advice'?

I don't think Manchester University does have a lot of asians, certainly not compared to some of the London universities such as TVU and London Met.
