Universities in North of England voted top for nightlife
3:24pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
UNIVERSITIES in the North of England have been voted the best for nightlife, according to a national survey.
A study of 17,500 students by the Which? University group said institutions in the north scored higher for pubs, clubs and music venues.
However the survey, which collated ratings by UK undergraduates in 2012 and 2013, suggested that London and South-East England was thought to have a better political scene.
Students were asked questions about the availability and quality of extra curricular activities at their university including nightlife, sports, arts and politics.
Among the highest ranking for nightlife were Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores, Northumbria, Leeds, Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian whilst Sussex was the only university from the South to make it into the top 10.
The consumer group said the lists were not ranked in order and the scores of the universities within the groups were not necessarily significantly different.
Students starting at higher education institutions from 2012 were eligible for fees up to £9,000 a year.
Jenni Allen, head of public services at Which? said: “The academic and extra-curricular experience at university varies widely.
“With increased tuition fees, it's never been more important for prospective students to weigh up all the options.”
