Not close to as good as some people imagine it might be.
Two unrelated very old and old universities in Glasgow.
Most Nobel Prize winners outside of Oxbridge and UCL in UK terms but the city's too businessy.
An ancient Scottish university a long way away from most of the UK population.
Where dull international swotters go these days, even compared to Oxford, its prettiness lost on them.

Newcastle University is in the top 15 of UK universities for having most privately educated students. It possibly partly stems from Newcastle University once being a constituent college of Durham University. The city is fairly nice to look at, there are plenty of bars and restaurants. You'll more often hear a Southern accent in Newcastle these days than a northern one.

Hi, this is the University of Aberdeen rep account. Have to say I'm not sure if this will be the best way of getting an accurate impression of the universities you're interested in but having a look on this website for threads discussing them can be a good idea. You can also get in contact with the unis themselves and some current students with some questions.

As for Aberdeen I can try to give you some information! We're a pretty small city in the northeast of Scotland and are the 5th oldest university in the British Isles. We're a bit out of the way compared to other unis in the UK but it puts us in a good spot for accessing northern parts of Scotland and nature spots. You can find out details about our campus, the city, and facilities available to you here: https://www.abdn.ac.uk/about/
It's hard to describe more without knowing what sort of things you are interested in/what subjects you are looking at, but please let me know if you have any questions about us! All the best in finding out more about each of the universities.
