    It depends what your needs are and what subject you're looking at.

    This guide suggests Birmingham City, Cardiff, Bath, Cambridge and Aberystwyth, Warwick, Brighton and Leicester may be worth considering.

    There's non man. Just don't go to uni. If your autism is 'Socially Autistic' then... well... you might not succeed.

    Also it seems the Late 90s/2000s kids are meaner and more immature than 90s kids. Good luck with them understanding a condition that is memed to death

    I think you're being a tad unfair. Student populations are generally similar wherever you go and that's one part of adapting to university. If I'm write OP is asking about the university's institutional policies and how helpful they are.



    Milliemax402, there's almost 200 universities up and down the country, and I'd like to think most provide a good standard of looking after their autistic students. You will get some who will go above and beyond and I think you've been given a link above pointing you towards some. Don't pick them for that reason, make your choices based on the course and then on the university itself and whether it's your "type" of place, and then factor in what their provision is like. Sadly there are also some who don't do enough and this is annoying. Have a chat to the disability/needs departments if you go to open days (this is worth doing) and you should get a flavour for how enthusiastic they are towards helping you.:yep:

    Thank you for you responses. To be honest it’s just an interesting thing to look at, I keep looking around for autistic people’s experiences in certain places. I’m at my 3rd sixth form now which is autism specialist after being treated really bad by the other 2 because of my autism.

    It’s less of me going “this is a good one for autistic” and going there based on that it’s more of an extra enquiry.

    And as far as not going because of my autism I get where you are coming from but university has been my dream since I was really small and I can’t let idiots who aren’t understanding and nasty win. I get what you’re saying though.
