    Some people studying at bath told me that maths of bath is equal to oxbridge! Most of handouts for teaching are from oxford.
    That makes me very happy,but is that ture?I just think it is even not as good as
    IC ,UCL,Warwick.

    What do you think?

    Most people who I have heard express an opinion on the matter rank the universities:

    Cambridge
    ***
    Oxford
    Warwick/Imperial
    Bath/Bristol

    Or something similar.

    Surely not? It's a very good university, but won't compare to Oxbridge, I don't think. Imperial and Warwick are also top notch. It's hard to tell, to be honest, but if you are that concerned with your university's reputation, go to Bath, get a First and then do a PhD at Cambridge, and you won't ever have to worry again!

    Personally, good though the course looks, I'm a little dubious of a university maths course that doesn't do delta-epsilon analysis till the second year.

    Ignore newspaper rankings, they're ok for a general idea of where a university stands, but beyond that they're worse than useless

    It might rank high for stuff like staff/student ratios and whatever else the tables are based on, but the content and difficulty of the course look pretty lightweight compared to Oxbridge.

    Well, you've already met it this term with sequence and series analysis - though I suppose that is technically "epsilon and N" analysis, but it still the same beast.

    Ooh - I think we did some of that last year at school when trying to define what a limit was. Well, it involved deltas and epsilons and once the sequence stays within the epsilons, it's converged... Or something like that... Ah well...
