True, but put as much of it on the loans as you can. You probably won’t pay it all off but that’s okay because it’ll time out. Uni is way too expensive now days. There’s more people going yet tuition keeps going up, when it used to be free.

some schools offer alcohol-free accommodation. this probably isn't an exhaustive list but just fyi.

www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45171571

you should make a list of unis that interest you, then google if they have alcohol free accommodation. i doubt you'll find any uni that doesn't have drinking culture to an extent, but you don't have to partake in it; it's not like kids are drinking at school during lectures :nah:

what do you mean by ethnically diverse? everyone at my accommodation is from India so not very diverse. even my Indian flatmates say that. lol

you should bear in mind that ethnic diversity will be influenced on the degree you study and where you choose to live. i've always been surrounded by ethnic diversity, but that may not be a reflection of the university as a whole.

I’m studying biomedical science in London in an area predominantly not white British, so it’s very diverse. I like that. I often feel like we don’t have much culture, tradition etc, compared to other countries, so I love learning about them.

I'm going to BCU. I hope it's diverse and not too big on the drinking as I'm not a fan.

Just try to avoid it if you don’t like it. All unis have a social drinking life due to there being lots of students who care about that. But this year due to COVID most are banning parties on campus, and if Boris shuts pubs and clubs to let school open, they can’t party off campus either.

I know that every uni has a drinking culture to an extent but my question was which universities there are that are not particularly known for their drinking culture but are ethnically diverse at the same time
.I think the term ethnically diverse is quite self explanatory it means people from a wide variety of backgrounds.
. I know some degrees have more diversity in them than others butt obviously im not going to be with them 24/7 and could imagine myself associating with other membersof the univversities which is why i am looking at the ethnic compostion of the uni as a whole. Same goes for flatmates.

Thanks for the link it was really helpful
