    I heard Swansea's really good. Nottingham and Imperial are pretty good for sport too.

    Do you mean competitively?

    Then the best in the world, by far, are U. Texas, U. Florida and Cal. Berkeley. But unless you are Olympic level you won't get a scholarship.

    I have qualifying times for the commonwealth games, do you think that's any good?
    also, which of those unis has the best reputation?

    Check the NCAA rankings
    http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/swimming-men/d1
    http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/swimming-women/d1

    and cross reference with the below
    (but caveat, these rankings don't necessily use criteria that are important to an undergrad...)

    All the leading NCAA schools are good. But note you will generally need to have strong academics as well as good swim times.

    Cal. Berkeley is a world top 10 university. U. Texas is also a world class institution. Florida would be say the equivalent of Durham/Manchester/Edinburgh in the UK.

    My gut feeling is that Commonwealth qualifying times wouldn't cut it.
