Hi Marsya,
I take it you will be coming to a university here. Can I suggest you start with search for some web sites that cover your studies subject and see if they also have voice training or singing or music in their syllabus.
London is an obvious place to target, you can just about everything there, however it is an expensive city.
Check out the Scottish web sites, the fees structure there is different from the English system.
When you have got some ideas, you can then make a better decision.
Please get back to me if you want more advice or assistance.

Hi Marsya,

I think Birmingham would be a good city to live in. There is a good university there and it is quite multicultural. All cities in the UK offer mostly the same things, although as Robert says London is the most expensive place to live. But I think you will be able to find whatever you need where ever you choose to stay.

Birmingham is okay, ranked 26th in the country.

The city is not the prettiest in the country but would have everything you need - shopping, cinemas, travel links (including airport), restaurants, plenty of culture including two major football teams.

All in all, I would say if it does the course you want then go for it.

Bristol is far more picturesque and the uni is ranked 8th!

If it was me I'd choose Bristol although it is a smaller city.

However in your case I would choose the city which has the best course for your studies as that should come first.

If however the courses are almost identical then - Bristol over Birmingham! :)
