    I want to study psychology at either Bristol or Leeds. I thought I'd prefer Bristol but I went to Leeds for the open day and I loved it, just as much as I loved Bristol. Both courses are great, both cities are great, but I'm just stuck between nightlife - as this is going to be really important to me during my time at Uni.
    I've heard that Leeds nightlife is brilliant, but I haven't heard that much about Bristol nightlife - I've also read that the type of people who go to Bristol and the type of people who go to Leeds are VERY different in terms of how snobby they are, is this true? I'm from a public school and I don't know if it's true whether I'd feel left out if I went to Bristol.
    But I'm just wondering if the nightlife / social aspect of Bristol is as good as Leeds supposedly is??

    I go to Bristol right now and night life is pretty damn good here! there's a great number of clubs for different range of music genres! As for snobbyness - potentially you might "see" it because it can be a bit of an "oxbridge rejects" place, but tbh I haven't experience it at all, and if you do see people like that, obvs you won't hang out with them so they are irrelevant.

    Maybe the only downside is that because this isn't campus, there might be less "studenty" events organised compared to Leeds (maybe idk) and definitely less of a student bubble . But there are club nights almost every night, and it is still pretty easy to meet people, so long as you go out and mingle.
