    The Times and Guardian use different criteria for their ranking, and this is (as far as I remember) published at the same time as their university league tables.

    You really need to read the criteria to find out which is more appropriate to you.

    They've all got their bias. Personally I never used them because they don't give you a true reflection for what a univeristy is really like. Go to the university and see it for yourself - talk to the lecturers.. walk around the campus/city. Get a feel for the place.

    I think the Times is generally held to be more accurate, but I love the Grauniad too much to choose another newspaper.

    I get the impression The Guardian's are just made up by the work experience kid.

    I prefer the rankings of the Sunday Times, and not the Times or Guardian. They seem to be the most well-reasoned.

    The Guardian ranked UCL 14th for Law and placed Bradford University above it. The Times appears to be more accurate.
