Hello So I am planning to start uni in 2021 September and have applied to: Lancaster, Bath, Newcastle, Leeds, and Manchester. I am international student so therefore have not visited this places/ unit. I would like to know which one would you recommend or what makes them different. This will be very helpful for my decision (if I get in )) hopefully)

I live in Manchester and it's very industrial. Some people don't like that, but there's still a lot of beauty to it in my opinion. It's incredibly diverse, and it's got plenty to do (when we're not in a pandemic). I think if you attended the university you'd very much be a part of the city life.

I went to a Lancaster open day a while back and was struck by how beautiful the place was. Much more natural, and much more of a campus than Manchester; you could essentially spend all of your time at the university on the campus if you were inclined to, as it looked to have everything you'd need on a day-to-day basis. It sounded a little safer than Manchester, but not as vibrant.

I've been to all the other places in my life, but not recently enough to comment on them properly, so I hope someone can fill you in there!

Look on YouTube for the Campus Tours and previous Open Day films for each University.
That will give you an idea of what each University actually look like and what each University thinks are their strong points.#
Also look at 'tourist' films for each town/city.

Lancaster and Bath are both small historic towns - both lovely to live in, and as an overseas student a great way to see the best of the UK.

Hello!! I'm also an international student who applied to Lancaster. I'm really confident in putting it as my firm, all the videos I've watched are so lovely! I do think the accommodations are a bit old compared to other unis I've looked at but that's all from photos and virtual tours so I'm not entirely sure. If you don't mind me asking, what course did you apply for?

My daughter is at Lancaster uni and its a great uni. Its campus is about 20 minutes away from the city on a bus. Buses come every 10 minutes. Its near morecambe by the seaside which is lovely in the summer. Lancaster is beautiful with lots of character. If you want to know more, read my blog on here:
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6562744
Its all about open days, application process, her grades and what uni she picks, and also how shes getting on
It also has Leeds on there too as we went there on open day. Further into the blog theres a you tube video that someone took last year of lockdown at lancaster and I put time stamps on there showing where everything is.

Lancaster is a really good option. The university is beautiful and the accommodation options are also very good. I stayed on campus for the first year and stayed with Uni pad for my 2nd and 3rd year. There’s other providers inc private landlords aswell. You won’t be disappointed with Lancaster
