The Wildest Universities have been revealed

There are so many ways to rank universities these days that it can be hard to untangle all the different league tables and find out how good each one actually is.

Just to make your life even harder when comparing uni cities, moving professionals MoveHub have come up with yet another ranking over which to argue: the world’s wildest cities.

To give you a little insight into this unorthodox ranking, here’s the methodology they used, as explained by MoveHub themselves: ‘We decided to focus on three things: nightlife, alcohol and drugs. The not-so-holy trinity. For data on nightlife venues (eg. nightclubs and bars) we used a combination of Yelp and TripAdvisor, and then used population statistics to work out the number of nightlife venues per 100,000 people in each city.

‘We did the same thing with cannabis consumption, taking the raw data from the Weed Index and calculating how many metric tons of marijuana is consumed per 100,000 people each year. Finally, we used country-wide statistics on cocaine use and alcohol consumption (from the UNODC and the WHO respectively) and applied these figures on a city level. Each city was then given a score ranging from 0 to 3, where 0 is completely tame and 3 is absolutely bonkers.’

They ranked 112 cities the world over, and we’ve collated the UK cities which made the rankings here. Check out the full list over at MoveHub.
