Student Guide for Picking the Right Party City/University
- 05 Jan 2018
#1. London:The capital city of the UK is popular with students, with forty higher education institutions and a student population of almost half a million. Whether you’re looking to study a STEM subject at King’s College or want to unleash your creative side at the University of the Arts, there’s definitely an option for you in the capital. However, if you’re looking for cheap student nightlife, London may not be the best option for you, with higher living costs than any other city. If you are going to be able to work or have financial help from your family, then it could be a good choice. For students hoping to take on work placements during their degree, London is an excellent option, with more placements available here than anywhere else in the UK.
#2. Manchester:If you’re hoping for a student experience like no other with superb study facilities, buzzing nightlife and affordable living costs, then head to the North West of the UK to Manchester. The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, and the University of Salford located just outside of the city collectively provide a huge prospectus of degree courses, from medicine and dentistry to film production. For creative, media or journalism students, the facilities available from the University of Salford at MediaCityUK are second to none, giving students the opportunity to work alongside companies such as ITV. When it comes to partying, the city provides one of the best student experiences, with cheap nightlife and plenty of student nights to choose from, whatever your preferred scene. When it comes to accommodation, students can choose from a wide range of halls of residence, and Fallowfield is the perfect location for large, cheap student houses to share with all your friends in your second and final years.
#3. Newcastle Upon Tyne:Home to both Newcastle and Northumbria Universities, Newcastle Upon Tyne is a student city that has been steadily rising in popularity. With a thriving cultural hub filled with restaurants, nightlife, and excellent public spaces, students are never short of something to do when they come to this welcoming and interesting city. If you’re interested in history, then Newcastle Upon Tyne will be particularly suitable for you, with a rich history spanning all the way back to the Roman era. For those who hope to study at a more prestigious institution, the Russell Group Durham University is located just half an hour’s drive away. Accommodation in the city is excellent for students, with halls or shared houses readily available from a top student letting agent.
