    Hi, so I currently have unconditionals from these two unis but I'm really indecisive as to which one to pick.

    The subject is for English literature and I know the league tables aren't the best to go by in terms of a deciding factor, but it seems overall Exeter seems to be better in terms of rep/academics which is important to me.

    The thing is, I'm kind of concerned about nightlife etc because I withdrew from university of Reading (hated the course and the town just reminded me of my own town back home, so pretty unspectacular and with high accomadation prices for fk all). I'm thinking Exeter would be similar vibes to Reading which is what is slightly puttting me off.

    I've heard Nottingham nightlife is good but firsthand opinions on this would be really appreciated.

    Also any info about the style of buildings on the campus, I feel that pretty important too!

    Thank you in advance

    Exeter is not known for its night life.

    Largely:

    Caucasian, from the home counties/London and went to boarding/private school or grammar school or the best comprehensives

    Smattering of minorities from the UK (usually London; skewed middle class), smattering of (very wealthy) minorities from overseas, smattering of northerners, smattering of scottish (but not really scottish since they went to top private schools and sound english), decent number of welsh people

    Internationals from cosmopolitan european countries (aka France - there are a LOT of frenchies, Italy, Spain etc)

    Internationals from Asia (largely Singapore, China, HK, Malaysia)

    International school kids (usually a mix of different backgrounds)

    Everyone skews middle to upper middle class (or flat out rich as ****), with some smattering of a few working class people.
