    I can't say anything about Barts but I'm at Leicester at the moment

    Pros
    - Early patient contact and good communication training
    - Integrated curriculum (the new one especially)
    - Great pastoral support from tutors and medical societies
    - Everyone is really friendly
    - Really low living costs, especially after first year (and compared to London)

    Cons
    - First year accommodation is a long way from uni (unless you choose city campus)
    - Clubbing isn't great

    Some things will depend on what you want!
    The city is quite small, but there are some great restaurants and cafes around and a decent shopping centre which is close by.
    You get free transport on the hospital busses which is really useful.
    Trains to London are fast and cheap if you still want to go there for days out.
    There are some great opportunities for student research!
