Hi Guys, I was wondering could anyone give me their advice on which uni i should pick, i wont be able to go to any open days. Im looking to do business related subject but more importantly TO ME. I want to know which uni has the best nightlife (known for parties, raving, drinking and doing weed) ( im looking for RnB and Hip-Hop clubs mainly ) and also a place thats diverse, not that it matters but preferably for me. It would be really nice if people could reply and also give points about the uni to guide m with the answers. Thank you for your time.
First think of each university individually;
Do they have modules unique to that course that you would be interested in?
How are the facilities at the university?
Is there anything unique to that university that you would be interested in?
What about the placement opportunities available to you?
Are there any societies there that you would be interested in? - Are they active?
How expensive is accommodation? - Is that an issue to you?
How expensive is the area in general?
What amusements are in the area that you would be interested in? - e.g. museums, theatres, zoos
If you are interested in music, is it a place big bands regularly play? What about festivals? Is that an issue to you?
How do they fare on the league tables (specific to that course?) - and is that an issue to you?
Have you checked out The Complete University's guide to each university?
Birmingham - https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...rmingham-city/
Leeds Beckett - https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...leeds-beckett/
Nottingham Trent - https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...tingham-trent/
Taking the time to research and properly answer each of the questions will allow you to get a really well developed understanding of each university. From there, you will be able to form a preference. Be sure to check out videos for each university as well. Watch general university videos, as well as the ones about your course. Also be sure to watch videos of other courses held in that department, it will give you a fuller insight into the staff and facilities there. Check to see if any students have posted videos about their experiences at the university as well.
If you have any questions then reach out to the university whom will be able to provide you with the answers. It is best if you contact the university's department directly, but if not, then send an email to the Admissions department. Also reach out to a variety of societies at each university through Facebook. They will be able to give you a really good insight into the university, the nightlife, and the city.
I am unfamiliar with each area, but if you check out tourism guides they can be a really invaluable tool. They might not be able to answer all your questions - specifically the weed one. But they can definitely show you what each city has to offer. If you then check out clubs etc that catch your eye, then you be able to see how affordable the nightlife is and how often they provide nights tailored to your interests. Here are some guides to each city, check them out and they might be helpful.
A lot of my friends whom go out in Birmingham really enjoy Snobs (http://www.snobsnightclub.co.uk
) but I think it's more of an indie club.
