Universities are much more than just a place to earn a degree. They’re somewhere you’ll spend three or more years of your life, making new friends and gaining a wealth of invaluable life experience. The decision of where to study is not something to be taken lightly.
It doesn’t matter what you study, no student spends all of their time sat in lectures or locked away in the library. It’s important to find a healthy balance between academia, extra-curricular activities and a social life.
Maybe you’re an adrenaline junkie who loves to go rock climbing or canoeing, or perhaps you just want to be able to take a leisurely stroll in a local park after a day full of lectures. Either way, having easy access to the great outdoors can be an important factor in your decision.
We’ve looked at 25 of the best universities in the country, ranking them on a number of different factors. Using data supplied by Ordnance Survey, we were able to measure the amount of green space on and around campus. We also looked at the number of outdoor societies on offer, as well as the average weather patterns of the local area.
