    Roehampton, which isn't on there also has a nice campus. I went to the open days for both Roehampton and Greenwich but ended up elsewhere because employers care about the quality of your uni, not beauty.

    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!
    I think there is some informal selection at the home colleges of those who would benefit from the experience. It doesn't seem to end up with the stereotypical bored American teenager looking for the next McDonalds. Although in theory open to any American college students, in practice they come from smaller provincial cities in America.


    It seems to select its visiting faculty on the same basis.

    I like the look of Keel's 'old' bits - unfortunately these days you drive in through the medical school which looks like a business park where some cost cutting property developer bought the buildings out of a catalogue

    But at least it is a proper campus :top:

    I think you mean Canterbury Christchurch University.

    I did my nurse training at Nottingham Uni and it’s beautiful. It’s just a shame that it’s attached to and I spent most of my time at Queen’s Medical Centre which is a monstrous sprawling eyesore- some hospitals have beautiful old buildings but QMC is anything but beautiful!!

    From google images durham and it's not even close. (if the main castle on the island is the actual university)

    Then it's (in no particular order) cambridge, glasgow, nottingham, st andrews.

    Then Oxford, aberdeen, bristol and so on.

    Purely on uni buildings and not including the surrounding city/greenery I'd say the best is oxford (ruined by all the roads through it).

    To anyone who complains that QMC is a monstrous sprawling eyesore, there is only one thing to say:-

    Nottingham City Hospital.
