Those organising their university preparation may want to consider their personal safety alongside issues such as course choice, as a new study has found the best and worst cities with regards to student-related crimes.
According to research by the Complete University Guide, Canterbury, Bath and Lancaster have the lowest incidences of law breaking, while Bristol, Manchester and Nottingham occupy the last three places.
In Scottish cities with two or more universities, Aberdeen is the safest while Glasgow is the most dangerous.
Bernard Kingston, founder of the guide, said that such information is something prospective students should bear in mind when preparing their UK university application.
