    Less Rah than Newcastle and Exeter but more Rah than Essex or Kent.

    It's a question that can't really be answered. The whole "rah" thing is, in itself, quite a stereptype anyway. It's a redbrick so has a predominately middle class intake. But it doesn't strike me as currying favour with the Rahs in the same way that Bristol, Exeter or Newcastle do (just three examples). It has a huge student body with a decent variety. Go to university with an open mind. Make friends with people you want to make friends with. There'll always be people you don't like wherever you go.

    To be honest, just about every single redbrick/Russell Group uni has been accused of having a large "rah" quotient, except maybe Liverpool.

    I'm sure there's some kicking around but Manchester is a huge uni - something for everyone. If you were seeking the rah contingent out then I'd say the RAC, Bristol and Exeter would be the places to head for.

    Ha, I'm glad my original post has split so much decision. Something like 40% of my uni mates went off to UoM though, so it's not without foundation.

    Nottingham is midlands then - apologies. Most people from where I live (me included) tend to class anything south of Liverpool as being 'South'.

    When I was at an open day for my course, out of the say 150 people, there was like 4 or 5 typical rahs I noticed. There was quite a a lot of southerners. There was also a lot of international students, particularly chinese ones (it was quite funny nearly all of 'them' went to the 'Accounting specialisation' lecture and the rest were at the Business Studies one)

    There are around 15 Chinese in my hall and I think most, if not all of them do business :p: To be honest, I've not met any of these "rah"-type people...

    Take the train up to Durham/St Andrews, fold out a deck chair, and observe. Perhaps in front of Jack Wills. Or, indeed, anywhere in town

    Well I hadn't even heard of 'rah' until I came on here.....must be a nothern thing. I'm from the South and I'm not even slightly posh!! Does this mean that all southerners sound posh to notherners? I know what everyone means by rah, I've met a few people like that, but most of us aren't really that posh :rolleyes:

    Lol, yep!! I know far more pikeys than I do posh people. To be fair though, I prefer a common accent to a posh one, can't be doing with posh accents, they do my head in!!

    Absolutely everyone at Manchester, without any exception at all whatsoever, even you, is on coke and therefore a rah.
