Leeds, Liverpool or Lancaster for best student experience (both studying and city life)?

I have offer letters from University of Leeds, University of Liverpool and Lancaster University for Msc Entrepreneurship.

I don't want to go just for the ranks but overall city and learning experience from an international student point of view. Which one should I choose with respect to learning, student experience, student life, night life, sports. In short overall experience of the city life + university life?
Answered by Alison Patterson
It is a very personal decision, so one that only you can make.

Leeds and Liverpool are two of the largest cities in the UK and have long-established universities, both of which are members of the prestigious Russell Group.

By contrast, Lancaster is a small, rural city and the university is about 50 years old, based on a campus outside Lancaster.

Do you want to live in a city or on a campus? What is the provision for accommodation at each university? How do the costs compare? Have you read the information on the university websites to check on the facilities and, in particular, to check the course content? There will be variations and you may prefer one course syllabus more than the others.
