Exeter will always be my #1 :daydreaming:

Keele has a gorgeous campus too, shame it's in the middle of nowhere

Some of the choices are not 'a campus' - you should delete Oxbridge - some of the coilleges are pretty ugly anyway e.g. St Anne's.

Also I doubt that very few people have actually visited ALL of them .. so how can they compare them??

You don't have to include the ones in the article - be a free thinker. Oxbridge is made up of colleges - it is not a campus.

A free thinker? You are taking a TSR poll awfully seriously.

There is no Edinburgh campus, it is spread all over the place, you have Old College, New College, George Square, which is nothing to write home about, you have Teviot Row, McEwan Hall, Staff club in Chambers Street, Pleasance, Kings Buildings, Holyrood etc etc. What it does have is one of the better cities around it but frankly, and I say this as a graduate and a resident, it is not , university wise, that stunning.

Kings at Aberdeen is imho prettier but then one lifts one's gaze and spots the other bits around it, same with St Andrews, some parts are great but again it would be hard to say that either Computer Science of Geosciences were housed in stunning buildings, they are not.
Yes, I think I am letting my love of Edinburgh cloud my judgement a bit for that one.

May I also mention the University of Evansville whose British campus is in Lincolnshire.

It is where King Arthur got his BA in swordsmanship

I can't quite believe this exists - maybe its just where they learn "British Studies" that it makes it seem a little too surreal.

The American Harry Potter/Downton Abbey fans with too much money must think this is amazing

The big difference from other "study abroad" programmes is students are not squatters in someone else's building or occupiers of some anonymous teaching rooms.They become alumni of Harlaxton College.

https://harlaxton.evansville.edu/

Harlaxton has had an enormous and entirely serendipitous effect on what was otherwise a nothing university in a nowhere town in the middle of nowhere. Stanford had the place before Evansville but made nothing of it and eventually moved to the High in Oxford, where they have the visibility of a submarine.

This may sound harsh, but does it have a reputation of attracting the rich and not so intelligent? A requirement of a 2.5 GPA seems a little low!

Parts of Downton Abbey where filmed there if I recognise it correctly.:yep:

I think it may have been some of the inspiration for the architecture of Hogwarts too. The Quidditch practice area based on those lawns.
