You could try looking at un-official guides on the uni's or look at uni's website.

You just have to order one hell of a lot of prospectuses and use them for bedtime reading... make lots of lists, tear them up and apply to completely different places.

Have a look at the league tables to narrow down the decent uni's, then research to see if they do your courses..Nottingham is a good campus uni.

York is a campus uni, and has an amazing history course. Not really sure about the music clubs things, but i remember them saying they had lots of socieities. I would really recommend having a look at it, when I went to visit it I fell in love with it, so could well end up there come October!

What makes you so sure you want a campus? I thought that too but when I started visiting unis, I decided that I much prefered city ones. You shouldn't rule out all non-campus unis without looking round some first

Are you deciding to go with single honours History then, rather than joint honours Music and History?

Dad said joint Music and history would be too much - I'm inclined to agree but would want to do a lor of Orchestras - chamber etc. wherever I went

Well, speaking as someone doing a joint Music and History degree, I wouldn't say it's too much, but maybe that's just me...

Hope you get well soon!

ir you're not doing a music degree then maybe have a look at unis that don't have a music degree - such as UCL - because then you can access the ensembles and practise rooms without having to compete with music students who need the credits, etc. that's what i was told and it made sense when i had a look around, as i want to keep my music up but i'm diong a science degree.

i'm going to sussex - it has a good music course so lots of ensembles and practise rooms but ensembles don't count as credits for the music students so there's no preferential treatment. it's also a campus based uni but with brighton nearby for a big city. have a look there?

Why would doing joint music and history be too much? Joint Honours courses are the same amount of work, you just split your modules between two subjects. You'd be more likely to stay interested and motivated as well- for example, when you got sick of doing work for music, you could switch to history and vice versa.
