I'm currently 19 years old and I'm thinking of going to UK for university. I'm planning to do chemistry and I'm considering these choices:

University of Warwick
University of York
University of Bristol
University of Bath
etc.

I'm not from UK therefore I can only apply to 3 universities through UCAS. I don't know how's life over UK so I really don't know which to choose. :(:(:(
I want to live in a nice place, affordable living, some nightlife, easy to get around town, good community and safe as in low crime rate.

Any idea?

Generally the UK is quite expensive with housing (esp. London) etc. especially near the city centers obviously. Some universities also offer housing at a campus, which is usually a bit more affordable, and rather close to the uni, though you're probably quite far away from the center. That's a choice you have to make ;)

Best advice will be to check enough sites and to check whether the uni can arrange housing and such.

Good luck with your applications!

Bristol is a great uni city and a good place. The uni's you have selected are also very good academically so will have great 'international' support.
