London school of economics the only London university in top 10 for best student nightlife 2016


Students applying from all around the world to the United Kingdom universities this autumn: forget about teaching and research quality, or the graduate employment rate of the institution your heart so desires to go to because, next year, it’s all about which universities have the best student nightlife. Well, guess what we have got the answers to your questions and listed down the best universities for students’ nightlife.

Having surveyed thousands of undergrads, Which University has found it’s the universities in the north that are best if you’re looking to party the night away, with Northumbria and Newcastle jointly taking the top position.

And if you’re looking for the best political and creative scenes, it’s south you should go i.e. the University of London for budding political enthusiasts, Falmouth University, University of the Arts, London, and the Norwich University of the Arts all taking joint first for being the most creative of them all.

The new research has also revealed the nation’s top institutions for sports and students union activity – the University of Leeds was judged the best for having the most active students union, and Loughborough for being the most sporty – to help take the chore out of the task that is choosing the best place to study for a degree.

Students also voted the University of East Anglia, University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow, University of Leeds, and the University of Sheffield as the best all-rounder universities, all of which scored highly across all categories. Which makes the choice for some rather difficult, as to which university to choose when applying to studies.

Alex Neill, Which? director of campaigns and policy said: There are many factors to consider when deciding where to go to university, so hearing how current students rate their university – on everything from nightlife to the political scene – can be really useful.

It’s always worth taking some time to consider all the options and do some research into what each university offers you before you make your decision.
