Don’t wanna sound like a prick but I’ve just generally been pretty popular and I’m super extroverted, being around people and being liked by people is really fun and I love having loads of close friends. Buuuttt I’m not into the whole party scene. I go to the Tiffin girls school so there’s a 79% chance I’ll get into a Russell’s group uni including oxbridge and I get good grades. Do any of u guys know how to make it in Oxbridge, Imperial, UCL and still be popular and have friends without being into drinking, clubbing, partying etc. I wanna have loads of fun in uni but not by getting myself piss drunk and binging on drugs.

You'll find lots of other students who think the same way that you do. Their social scene will be about joining clubs and societies - sport, music, drama, tiddly winks ......

Try some of the american universities like Chicago, Yale, MIT etc. Failing that, what about Trinity College Dublin? Imperial and UCL are boring places to spend 3-4 years tbh. Edinburgh would be more fun, without compromising on prestige.

Do you want to live in London? There are those who would say definitely yes and those who would say definitely no.

I’d like to live on campus which I think is requirement, and London is definitely what I would go for

The top London unis (Imperial, UCL, KCL, LSE) are great for research, but they don't offer enough in terms of facilities for students, or places to hang around with friends. Also, some of the buildings could do with refurbishing. On the plus side, they are located in the good parts of London, and they are all quite prestigious. Universities outside of London tend to be much more fun for undergraduates.
