I chose York over Reading because I went to the Reading open day and hated it - it was just far too big a place than I felt I could cope with at the time. I actually accepted York before I'd been to look round it because at the time it was ranked 6th in the UK and that made me feel a bit proud for getting into a good one. Reading was about 37th I think.
I went to look round it with my cousin, who was in the 2nd year at the time. The city was so good I had made up my mine as soon as I saw it, which was useful as we never actually made it to look round the campus!
What English are you planning to do there? I do English Language and Linguistics and it's a pretty damn good course and department. The Linguistics dept is one of the best, and the Phonetics department within that is one of the top in the world, on a par with one in Canada I think.
I can't comment on the nightlife in York really as I don't like clubbing, but I think there are 3 or 4 clubs that people tend to go to all the time in the first year, and then a bit in the second year but then mostly go to Leeds, which is really close by train and cheap to get to. There are lots more clubs there. The city has lots of other stuff though that is good.
what made you chose your university?
