    Quite simply, the older and more 'traditional' unis have the most rahs. Hence,

    Oxbidge, Durham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Newcastle, Leeds.

    Bloody hell. Surely they arent really like that. If that guy went to my school, he would be stabbed. I dont know how long i could put up with people like that. 'Chundered', 'lash' wtf
    You've never hard of lash? We (where I live) say we're "going to get lashed", or "a bit of pre-lash" if we're drinking before we go out, that kind of thing.

    OP, does it matter? "Rahs" aren't actually that bad. Then again, according to people on here (:rolleyes:), I am one, so :dontknow:

    And no, I don't say chundered. Myself and my friends say "banter" and variations of it like "banterbury" though lol.

    Is Bath full of rahs? D:
    I live there. Not really. But there seems to be an obvious divide between 'working class' and 'middle class' and there are a lot of yummy-mummy boutiquey type shops here.

    can I just ask... what do you actually mean by 'most rah/posh university' ?

    are you going by the amount of private school students at each university or are you going by the amount of people who seem to act like stuck up snobs? Because I can assure you, the two don't always intersect. Not all private school students are stuck up snobs or 'rahs' as they seem to be called her, just like not all state school students are idiots or poor... so this seems like a slight generalisation...

    however, if im wrong, or ive misinterpreted what this thread is actually about, please do correct me, as im not trying to offend anybody!

    I haven't stated my stance on Rahs, so don't imply I find them a bad thing. It's like that thread asking what university is the ugliest. It doesn't really matter but just a bit of miscellaneous fun.

    And anyways, I don't mind Rahs. Heck, I'm partial to a bit of Jack Wills.

    I studied at newcastle a few years ago. It is VERY RAH. Apparently 2/3 from public school and princess eugenie goes there for gods sake! But don't let that put u off, the best place to go to uni in my opinion.
    Most recent statistics are that only 30% went to a private school.

    Fair enough then. Sorry, I'm used to 'rah-bashers' on here!

    Notts is quite posh/rah from my experience so far. In my block of 15, only 3 of us didn't go to a fee paying or grammar school, I couldn't believe it at first! To be fair I live in Cripps Hall, which has a reputation for being the posh one...

    Imperial College Union is the only students union that publicly SUPPORTS the increase in tuition fees.

    I think we win.

    I was just looking through some old threads and the usual suspects turn up, but I wanted to know what others thought. Of course Oxbridge, Durham, Bristol, Edinburgh, St. Andrews and Exeter were mentioned quite a lot in those threads, and for some reason, Nottingham appeared every now and then. Also, I was reading an old Times article that said that Newcastle was the new place to be, saying it was the alternative if your children (it was directed at middle/upper class parents) get that anorexic letter telling them they wouldn't be getting into their first choice, or any, college.
    Barring Oxford and Cambridge, probably Durham or St. Andrews.

    There are times when I walk through Durham city centre and hear nothing but posh, Southern accents. Newcastle is now also very rah apparently, but it's a really big city so perhaps less noticeable. With Durham being very small, it's much more noticeable. All Durham students look the same to me. Flip flops, tracksuit bottoms with the printing of whatever sports team they're in, Hollister top, gilet jacket and the same hair style.

    Nothing wrong with them, they're all very polite, I get quite a few in at work. Most of the girls are stunning as well.

    Have you ever been to Durham?

    I've lived there for 20 years and believe me, it's not boring. There's plenty to do! I suppose in comparison to living in a huge city centre it would be relatively boring, but still...

    I've never heard chundered in real life, pretty sure thats made up, but everyone (in London and around the country) uses lash and pre-lash.

    Thats a pretty big leap of logic to say from just living in Notts and Cambridge. What about Exeter, Ox brookes, st. Andrews, Imperial, Durham etc?

    Edit: anyway, 'Rah' isn't the same as being posh, in my opinion. Rah is about Jack Wills, branded clothing, and showing off money and being loud, obnoxious, with an annoying laugh - you have to be a snob to be rah, but not all posh people are snobs.
    You have a point there. Joanna Lumley is posh, but definitely not a rah.

    I'd have to flip a coin to decide which university is most rah between Oxford and Cambridge tbh.
