英國大學環境談 (2) – 城鎮大學 (City University)

城鎮大學,自然是位處英國大小城市中,設施散在城中各處的高等院校。它們之中有兩大類:一是創於工業革命年代的Civic大學,全都是英國精英大學組織Russell Group的成員。因多數用上當代熱門的紅磚建築而又被通稱為Red-Brick University;

英格蘭東北三城記(1):米杜士堡 (Middlesbrough)

英格蘭的東北部(North East England),向來不是旅遊熱點。以往,這裡是礦業為主的工業區,可是自工業式微經濟插水以後,這區的名聲一直不甚了了。 東北最著名的「出口」大概還是足球吧。因著英超聯的關係,東北的兩大城紐卡素(Newcastle) 和新特蘭 (Sunderland)在國際間也是稍有名氣。(要和人解釋我住在那裡,從來也是靠紐卡素) 若你有留意英超的話,那你應該還有聽過米杜士堡 (Middlesbrough)這支球隊:它也曾是超聯的常客,不過自數年前降班後一直到次級聯賽浮浮沉沉。不過,Middlesbrough出名的其實不只足球-歷史上,這裡還是英國工業革命的重心,最重要的冶鐵之城。米杜士堡的出品之廣,甚至在香港也有好數個例子呢。
