Happy new year to you all! I haven't been around much recently, due to lots of first term at university partying, and my band being about to possibly maybe record at abbey road, so rehersal central, and other such commitments.
Basically, I'm trying to pick you (mainly UK based) guy's brains about universities. Currently, I'm studying International Disaster Engineering Management at Coventry University, which, although it sounds very cool, is a course for retards at a University with a very low self-esteem. After a term of concentrated no work and effort, I'm still getting firsts for my essays, and am comfortably top of the class. Which all sounds fine and dandy, except I'm going to lose all the motivation and intelligence I ever had by the time I graduate!
My plan is now to go and study Astrophysics (my first love!) at a much more prestigious university in the UK, trouble is, I dont know which one! I'm applying for: Nottingham, Leicester, Leeds, Bristol, Bath and Sheffield, I think, but I'm not sure about any of them except the first two, which I've visited and liked.
So basically, I'm wondering, out of you guys at university, or who have been/know people who go, where would you recommend? I'm looking for a good University (top 30) well-know for a great social life, preferably campus university, and generally somewhere I can hang out, make great music, learn lots, and imbibe fine beers and spirits in fine bars with fine people!
All suggestions are welcome!
Many thanks, Henry.
