Application deadline details:
Lovely university, with really great tutors and a really nice layout of three campuses next to town. The nightlife isn’t too amazing in the town, but if you’re in a group you can grab a taxi into Nottingham which will wind up pretty cheap and there’s a big scene there. The St Peters Quarter has lovely little shops to eat into your loan, and I recommend winding up your summers at the Darley Park concert - beautiful music and fireworks!
