Winner: city universities
If students thirsting for variety are wondering whether to choose a campus or city university, you can definitely offer some pretty clear guidance. Variety is quite an easy win for city universities, which provide everything a big city has to offer.
Unlike the more contained campus universities, all manner of organisations, businesses, markets, shops, bars, museums and more can flourish in cities. Students will have no shortage of new activities to try out!
Martina told us all about this: “London, as a city, is already full of opportunities. You’re going to have museums, galleries, pubs, restaurants… from Michelin starred to street food, and from all over the world.”
And it’s not all urban, either! Lots of cities have worked hard to preserve and create plenty of green space, meaning students can enjoy the best of both worlds at lots of city universities. You can hear Martina talk about how that’s happened in London in the clip below.
