I am studying Neuroscience at UCL, which is a pretty tough course but with lots of opportunities for getting experience in research. UCL is surrounded by research especially Neuroscience research whic makes it such a great Research University. In terms if teaching this are not so shiny and bright, most of the time I get the sesation that the style of traching is pretty much very old school in my department, with lots and lots of lectures and not too many worksops and few labs as well. Facilities simply do not meet demand, there are so many students and the campus is quite small. The student union is really great there are always very intresting events running and there is a society for pretty much anything you can think of.
