As a few may know the next lot of applications for university have to be in very soon(15th january latest).

I will be joining these applicant and was merely wondering what the Universities I'm interested are actually like. City, resources, people etc. Whatever, I'd like a second opinion to these cocky, smart-ass advertisers and so called 'students' who are clearly either bribed or having sex with the teachers.

My main ones are-Manchester Metropolitan -Essex(colchester branch) - Bolton - and finally Manchster university

Just wondered if anyone had any info on these or in fact any other. oh I should mention I want to study Mathematics but am open to History and Geography as well:)

Thanks in advance.

Haven't really heard too much about Essex, since, well, it's in the south...

Bolton itself is pretty boring from my experience, no experience of the uni itself though. Manchester is a great place to study from what I've heard, I have some friends at Manchester Met and they like it there. Not really much help, sorry.

I don't know about the actual universities much (i'm at UWE), but depending on what you enjoy, unis in big cities tend to be more entertaining, due to the fact the universities are larger and in larger cities, there's more going on. i've been up to manchester to see friends going there, and i had a good time, so i'd recommend either of those, don't know about bolton or essex though.

Stear clear of Bolton, its a shit hole IMO!

I have stayed with a friend of mine at Manchester uni and from what I saw and heard it is fantastic, so many curry houses! And Manchester met is quite good but smaller from what I have heard. I haven't heard much from Essex so can't judge.

Im up at Leeds and the atmosphere is great, currently snowed in with a foot and abit of snow here though!

What course are you looking at there? When I went up there it was rainy so probably not the best time for appearance sake. When I looked around the uni the accommodation was bare bones basic and a fair walk away from campus. From talking to a lecturer there the uni will take almost any student whom applies and they have massive drop out rates.

Under subscribed courses that don't bring enough money in get cancelled not letting students half way through finish their degrees.(For the course I was looking at there this was the case)
