Hello all.
Russia is not always Europe. If you are near Moscow it's Europe. In three days by train to East Russia is Asia. I just want to say here about Tomsk - a small and cosy town, very clean and green, a students' town, the town of universities (6 universities in a half a million men town, Siberian Athens), the only town in Russia (maybe even in the world) with the statue of Happiness. Tomsk is one of the most beautiful Siberian towns with four hundred years' history. Is Russia European country? Who knows? :) Goodbye

Take a look at Belfast. Queen's University is pretty huge, and I'd swear that students outnumber everyone else 5 to one. I found it rather annoying (read: loud) at times, but Queen's has a good reputation and Belfast itself is a beautiful city.

What about Granada, south of Spain?? With population of around 300.000 , most of them students! Nightlife is incredible!! The city is stunning, life is cheaper than other spanish cities, ski station is 30mins away, and the beach 45mins away! All of that plus the natural southern spanish charm... Look into it, you wont regret it ;)

Good Luck!

Coimbra in Portugal is the oldest university in Europe. It has a great feel for an old world college town and can be really beautiful in the spring...lots of mystical old statues and beautiful architecture. There are lots of the typical cafes and bakeries, pubs, etc.. great european campus feel. Plus you can see the old Roman settlement ruins of Conimbriga. Have fun.
