Well Womps you are obviously going to want to live as cheaply as possible. This is why I would suggest Wales. Several good universities, but just as important house prices are not as expensive as many places therefore accommodation should be cheaper. If you choose Swansea then getting home is not a problem as it on the main line to Bristol with frequent trains. Another point if you need any medical treatment you will find that in Wales prescriptions are now free of charge.

Scotland is where you need to be, it's not that I am or even particularly like the Scottish, but their Uni fees are the cheapest! you can pick up a small castle for a fiver (not in Edinburgh though)

I assume you live in Lancashire at the moment? "advice on were to move to" :smile:

Cheiftiff did you know that Scottish Uni courses are normally a year longer than the rest of UK, why I have no idea
 
If you want the kid to grow up feeling good about itself and have a superiority complex, then wales of course....

Because they are subsidised by the English. :sad: The sheep are lovely though.
Unfortunately that is most definitely the case.
Also there is a far higher percentage of residents in Wales on benefits, these are also subsidised by the English.
As Wales and Scotland both have their own assemblies perhaps it is time they were given complete independence to tax their citizens and stop receiving help from the English that they continually berate.

Depends, those with A levels etc often get to skip year one, but not always.

The reason is Scottish highers were to a slightly lower level than A levels but one took more and thus had a more widely based education. Thus to reach the same level of a university degree one needed an extra year. In the old days many went to university at 17 though rather than 18 so just a change of where you did the year.

Another one for Wales, I have a few friends who studied in Cardiff and rated both the teaching and the quality of life.
 
It used to be the case that Leeds was the most economical place to live either as a student or on benefit, No 2 son did his PhD there, so based on reasonable data. The University is reconned to be OK. Stanadard of curry house is excellent, market is very good and cheap both for food and clothes, and accomodation is affordable.

Of course you would get a better degree in Scotland and your sprog would grow up to be a better person here, not that I am biased of course.

I fully recommend Wales. The Gower Peninsula is a fantastic place to wander about.

Who the hell would want to live in Southampton?

Wales is a beautiful place - Bangor, Aberystwyth etc but why this government has given the Welsh an Assembly when they were never a country/nation is beyond me. Its a Principality FFS and should be treated just like the rest of England. Scotland, on the other hand may claim to be an older nation than England and is entitled to be independent if that is what the Scots want. As far as Unis go what about Liverpool?

Sixth year studies and things like tht were merely ideas for the future when I was thinking about these things, and why my sprogs were doing it they has A levels as the result of me working down south (we all make mistakes), so I am not that up to date. Certainly when No 1 was contemplating Strathclyde they were willing to talk about skipping year one depending on grades but he went to Newcastle so never got to the bottom of that. Things have got far more codified these days and taking the pragmatic view seems less and less prevalent so perhaps it is 4 years or nothing these days.
