    In terms of course, compare course structures to work out which is better for you. Most unis will have a range of things to do and people to interact with so don't worry about being an introvert.

    I think on an academic basis it would be:

    Durham
    Manchester
    Sheffield
    Lancaster

    Manchester and Sheffield are in large cities.
    They all are quite different. maybe post on each of the bits of the forum for that university.

    So by far Durham is the best?
    But i heard the campus for business and management is away from the main campus and life is boring there?

    You will need to check on individual subjects. they all have different characters. The top 3 are all Russel Group Unis.

    You said you were an introvert, so what sort of uni would you want? Go and ask on the individual forums for the unis concerned.

    A university which has a friendly atmosphere and very easy to make friends with.

    I think either Durham or Lancaster would be the best option for you. Lancaster is a campus and is not very club like, and Durham is very prestige and they have announced that their Management school will be moved back into Durham for 2017 start. So it wont be at Queens Campus anymore. Sheffiled and Manchester are both very student like cities, lots of clubs and places to go. Lancaster and Durham are the exact opposite.

    1. Durham
    2. Manchester
    3. Sheffield/ Lancaster

    Don't know anything about the courses, though that's how it is reputation wise(and I believe reputation is probably the biggest factor of a university to an employer (though the factor of the university in its entirety isn't that great, as long as it's good)).

    I chose Lancaster over Durham because I love the location and the course is adequate. Personal interest>prestige.

    Remember you're going to be studying there for 2-4 years. You really need to check out the places first hand to see if you are ok with where you want to study.

    Getting to the town centre from the uni is hell. Last bus I took there took an hour. There's plenty of stuff on campus though, so you could really just live there and never leave.

    I'm doing an integrated masters in physics, classes haven't actually started yet though . I've been enjoying fresher's.

    go on the website - https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/

    you can compare the two universities and their courses and it will show their teaching methods and compare so you can see which one is the most appropriate for you
