The eternal need to escape the hustle and bustle of a city.. i NEED YOUR ADVICE PLEASE


I don't know if this is the appropriate thread so please excuse me if its not. 

 

Well at the mo I am living in a city in the south west of england  but am not enjoying living here really, next year I want to continue my studies elsewhere, is there anywhere you guys would recommend that's not in a big city? I don't know the uk very well as am not originally from here. I'm a bit of a small town/seaside townie gal, I love the idea of living in a seaside town but Brighton is far too expensive for me I'm afraid :( :(

be great to hear your thoughts, lots of love xxxxxxxxxxxx

A little bit more information might help people give better suggestions. When you say you want to continue your studies, what level of study are you referring to? Do you have any sort of geographical preferences? What exactly is it that you don't live about where you are currently?

Hey, well I'm doing a foundation degree atm and ideally I want to go to University next year. I just really don't like living in a city and would prefer to live somewhere quieter.

I think that most universities are in cities, so to avoid cities whilst attending university might be difficult.

If you wanted a small quieter city though I can suggest Carlisle or the surrounding areas. You'd be close to the university of Cumbria, should that take your fancy, but not too near the sea, if that was something important to you.

Or Aberystwyth's near the sea, has a university, and as far as I can tell from Google has a small population and looks quite twee.

I'm not too familiar with anywhere in the South, so I can't make any suggestions there, but maybe the Cornwall area would be nice (though I'd guess it's quite expensive).

Scotland is pretty awesome in that even if you live in the middle of a city you're probably only about 20-30 minutes from countryside.

What course are you wanting to do? What universities offer it, if we know which ones you would be able to go to we could advise better on places nearby that would mean you wouldn't have to live in the actual city but would still be close enough to make travelling not too much of a pain.

Thanks guys :)
I'm definitely going to consider Aberystwyth, it looks lovely and Spikeyfaerie, Scotland seems like a possibility too,where would you recommend there, anywhere in particular?

I want to study Drama at uni....

Norwich is a lovely small city, full of awesome stuff, not far from the beautiful Norfolk coast and slap bang in the middle of the loverly ole Norfolk countryside =) *city pride* and the UEA is a pretty decent Uni.

Glasgow has the Royal Conservatoire (previously Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama) and there are plenty of outlying places to stay with train and bus links into town... There is also Strathclyde Uni, Uni of Glasgow...

University of Abertay, Dundee (dunno if it does drama)

St Andrews Uni, again, dunno if they do drama but St Andrews is a tiny little town.

University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh is kinda cool in that each area of the city feels like an entirely different place. Morningside, Stockbridge and Fettes have a sort of villagey feel but walk for 10-15 minutes and you're into the main city.

I know that Bangor is tiny, and hardly a city (it's one of the smallest in the UK). I don't know if the university does drama though.

Maybe think outside the box and look at college which do degrees? Down here in Cornwall it's common for people to want to stay near home, so often local colleges here offer degrees... Maybe look over here in Falmouth or Truro if you like stuff a bit rural?

I don't like living here much, but then I think I'm built to be a city dweller! Falmouth does sound your cup of tea- lovely seaside town full of art students, artisanal bakeries and charity shops. If nothing else, you'd like to visit it!
