The UK truly has some of the loveliest college campuses to offer, but if you’re looking to study in the UK at some point and feeling rather unsure about which are the best, here are the ten most beautiful college campuses in the UK which are 100% worth a visit if you ever get the chance!
1. University of Oxford
Oxford is possibly one of the most famous universities in the UK, however, it doesn’t just offer a really great education. Some of the Oxford University campuses are truly stunning, full of beautiful architectural work and unavoidable history. Why not grab yourself a bike and go for a ride around the beautiful campuses?
2. University of Exeter
Not only is Exeter’s campus ideally located near the seaside and surrounded by greenery, but apparently the campus is very well looked after and one of the nicest to be on in general. So, if you’re looking to attend a university down south, why not check out Exter? What is better than a well-kept green campus that’s not far from a beach? Surely you can’t beat that…
3. University of Birmingham
Birmingham University offers a fantastic mixture of beautiful historic buildings and snazzy modern buildings, blended together seamlessly over an awe-inspiring 276-acre layout. Both campuses are situated close enough to the city centre to mean that anything you need is only a short journey away, but at the same time, the campus is just far enough to offer the peace and quiet you need from the city.
4. University of Nottingham
Nottingham University has a lot to offer in terms of campuses, with the Jubilee Campus, known for its innovative architecture and commitment to sustainability, the 300-acre University Park campus, and the award-winning China & Malaysia Campuses. Nottingham offers so many different campus locations so there is something for everyone, and so many are filled with beautiful greenery and stunning architecture.
5. University of St Andrews
The community at St Andrews is very small and close-knit, providing a really nice feel all over campus, especially for nervous first-year students that could be daunted by a huge campus. Overlooking the stunning North Sea and surrounding idyllic beaches and countryside of Fife, the campus is not only nice in atmosphere, but great for views too.
6. University of Bath
Bath’s campus has undergone serious building and refurbishment over the past few years, now featuring cutting edge research facilities, teaching rooms, halls of residence and The SU. Bath in itself is a beautiful place, with some of the most attractive buildings in the UK, and the campus is no exception.
7. Nottingham Trent University
Nottingham’s Clifton Campus is situated on the outskirts of Nottingham, meaning that like Birmignham’s campuses, you’re near enough to the city without being too close. The campus is surrounded by plenty of greenery to give you your daily dose of nature, and also has plenty to see with the grand buildings, both older and brand new.
8. Durham University
Another one of the UK’s most famous universities, Durham is one of the oldest in the UK, based in a beautiful and historic city. With a view of the Cathedral and Castle, the university has a lot to offer in terms of history and architecture. There are also plenty of clubs and societies available on campus, so you’ll never be bored at Durham, that’s for sure!
9. University of Gloucestershire
The Cheltenham campus is ideal for any history lover or Harry Potter fan, with plenty of old buildings full of dark wood, beautiful windows and amazing architecture, the Cheltenham campus of Gloucestershire University has a lot on offer.
10. University of Glasgow
As the fourth oldest University in the United Kingdom, again, you will find plenty of historic and beautiful buildings on the campus of the University of Glasgow. There is also a huge amount of greenery on campus, plus a library, a heated swimming pool, indoor sports courts, rugby and football pitches, the cricket oval and a museum – so something for everyone!
