I'm currently in the last year of A-Levels and am torn between Bath and Imperial College. I've heard that social life in Imperial can be bad and although I'm not a "party animal", I don't want to be the only person not studying all the time. With 40% foreign students, does this impact the feeling of unity within students and also does Imperial feel very male dominated compared to universities? Finally being a sporty person how are the facilities and is it inconvenient going to near Heathrow for football fields etc?
Imperial apparently offers a better education than Bath but the fact that it's in London obviously means a different lifestyle but any feedback would be great.
Is this right?
