    Lol Durham and Warwick don't even come in the Top 100 of THE rankings for Engineering, and yet Manchester's ranked 35
    Yeah sure, go watch league tables that ranks thinks like research when you're going there to do an undergraduate degree.

    Surely it isn't the lack of research that is the sole reason Durham/Warwick don't rank in the top 100...

    People doing good research don't necessarily know how to teach very well or deal with students needs.

    I didn't say they were bad. All I said is that they're not the best but isn't that obvious though?

    they may not be the best in your opinion for that particular subject
    other subjects though Nottingham is very good and i would go as far as saying the best
    i.e. Healthcare sciences

    If Manchester isn't among the best in the UK, Durham/Warwick definitely aren't the best

    They get better quality students with higher grades. You don't know how much this affects things.

    End of the day, unless you're doing a vocational degree like MevMev (i.e. medicine) that leads straight into an occupation, then sitting around and believing your university's name is going to open up all the doors in the world is a very bad idea.

    University rank matters but whether you're a graduate from Manchester, Notts, Durham or Warwick you'll need to bring something to the table. More and more people are completing degrees so it has become much less of a priority for employers nowadays. Obviously if you're coming from London Met or Wolverhampton you're gonna be at a disadvantage but for the most part solid universities like the ones mentioned earlier will do you fine.

    Did you choose your uni based on the type of people who go there?

    Did I make the league tables? Who knows what other ******** criteria they used to make those tables. Like student satisfaction. So if the uni works them too hard, they rate poorly, what a joke.

    Well on the THE ranking, I ranked them specifically only by teaching rating and the ranking stayed exactly the same :rofl:

    One of many reasons. I didn't want to go to a university where I'd feel out of everyone's league.
