13. Edinburgh University
With exciting events, such as a Harry Potter-themed bar, popping up all the time in Edinburgh, it’s unsurprising that the students love to party. They’ve just missed out on the top ten, which might come as a disappointment but with a little bit more clubbing a top ten finish is theirs next year.
12. University of Sheffield
When you’ve got one of the best universities in the UK for nightlife you really should be pretty high up on this list. Sheffield students have stood up to the challenge and partied hard.
11. University of St Andrews
Props to St Andrews. They came exceedingly high in the top universities in the UK this year (which was put together by The Complete University guide), but they’ve also put in a valiant effort in our list. Burning the candle from both ends, they sound like our kind of people.
10. University of Bristol
Bristol students love to party and their free love and edgy attitude has seen them squeeze into our top ten hardest partying universities.
9. Cardiff University
Cardiff are well known for their crazy nights out, so its no wonder we see them on the top 25 list!
8. Swansea University
After just missing out on being the booziest uni in the UK (to a fellow Welsh uni no less), the Swansea lot will be disappointed to see they have been pipped once again. At least you beat Cardiff, eh?
7. University of Liverpool
There are a load of free entry nightclubs in Liverpool, and that could well be a reason the Scouse uni has come so high in this competition.
6. University of Aberdeen
As the second-highest Scottish university on our list, Aberdeen can be proud of their partying credentials. But perhaps that has something to do with the fact they are one of the top universities for borrowing from mum and dad.
5. Aberystwyth University
Yes, Aber is not the biggest uni in the UK, with just under 10,000 students, but we’re going to say it is the pound for pound champion of partying. Not only is it the UK’s booziest uni but it is also in the top 5 hardest partying unis in the UK only beaten by universities with two or three times the number of students.
4. Newcastle University
The fun-loving lot of Newcastle have a reputation for wearing nothing in the freezing cold, but that’s only because they want to look great while they are partying hard.
3. University of Glasgow
It may be filled with a load of Harry Potter-lovers, but Glasgow is definitely a place to party. I’ll have one butterbeer, Rosmerta (that’s one for fans of the boy wizard).
2. University of Leeds
When you’re as bloody edgy as Leeds students you’ve got a bit of a reputation to fulfill. Thankfully, you Leeds students are more than up to the task. A few more nights out at Hi-Fi and you might take top spot next year.
1. University of Birmingham
Congrats Birmingham students — you are the number one hardest partying university! Your hard work (or lack of) has certainly paid dividends.
