Ive lived in London my whole life but kinda wanna move for uni so majority of my choices are out of London. My 5 choices are Queen Mary, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Leicester. Are these 5 good/respected for law? Additionally what's the nightlife/parties like? What's the best for that out of these? Thanks a lot.

The other thread you started became a bit convoluted so let's keep this simple.

So you actually want to get away from London? (I can't say I blame you.)

Yes, these are all very sound universities for Law. Do check that each of them will accept your BTEC qualification. Some universities are fussy about that. (Queen Mary and Liverpool accept BTEC at D/D*.)

As for partying, I hear that Newcastle has a good reputation. Perhaps someone from there would like to comment! I do know that it has a splendid campus and that it's a very friendly city. It's also a popular destination for independent school leavers - but don't let that put you off!

Depends on your grades.

Nightlife at all of them bar Leicester should be great, though keep in mind that there will probably be COVID-related restrictions this time next year.

London unis do score lower for student satisfaction than most other unis.

There will be a combination of reasons for this - at places like UCL/LSE/Kings most of the cohort will have achieved A*AA or above for Law and will be very focused on achieving high grades to get into the most competitive firms. Also, a large percentage of the cohort will be International and less likely to be interested in drinking and partying. Also, the cost of going out is very expensive in London and lots of people do not live close to the uni - some will be staying in accommodation quite a long way out as central London is so expensive or even commuting from home.

If the social side of uni is very important to you, you would probably have a better time in a city uni outside of London, like Manchester, Newcastle, Birmingham or Bristol.

Hello! I'm not applying to law by the way. Most of the factors you've mentioned (apart from expensive rent) are fine with me since I'm not interested in partying and drinking anyway. The competitiveness may be stressful but I think being around like-minded academically focused people would be better in the long run... I suppose. International students seem scary though

To me it's just that I've been in London my whole life and wanna get out, I'm also very into drinking with mates and going out and heard the nightlife in some of these areas out of London are better, if you aren't into that (even if you are, London is a great city) I'm sure you'll love your time at uni in London.
