    Yeah because you would know that they didn't choose a Cambridge graduate over you right? :rolleyes:

    Pretty sure its a vocational degree like dentistry/medicine where it doesn't matter where you get the degree from.

    A BSc in primary education is not a vocational course :rolleyes:

    I went to Liverpool Hope University, and graduated with a 2:1 BA Combined Honours History & Politics. No doubt some people will look down on that.

    I don't look down on any Uni's to be honest, waste of time. I wouldn't want to be the sort of pompous prat who went to Oxbridge/'a well respected' anyway, it works both ways.
    This is pretty much the same thing as an Oxbridge student judging you for going to your university.

    Yeah i know what you mean and imperial!!! imperial seem to think they are at the hardest uni ever when they basically just walked into offers. Noone understands the dental/medical school scenario like a dental/medical applicant one of the most streasfill things ever haha!

    This is fairly standard medical snobbery but usually you guys are a bit better informed than that. Imperial offers often have higher academic entrance requirements than medical school offers have. You guys do have interviews (Dunno if Imperial does these) and extra tests but for the latter I know that Imperial asks for an added exam in at least one case (Maths).

    LOL, I can't even get into university, so I don't have the right to look down on any university.

    Honestly, I don't look down on any. People are entitled to go where the heck they like and it isn't my place to judge. Some people work hard to get into a university that some would consider bad and it upsets me to see them put down for their achievements. Also, some apparently 'bad' universities are excellent for certain areas so completely dismissing them is ridiculous. Basically, if it doesn't affect you and your education, it's absolutely none of your business.

    I think poorly of the University of Aberdeen for this:

    Having outrageous rents

    And a principal who awarded himself an increased salary, and he is an "outstanding" principal?
