LSE in the same tier as Sheffield.
This thread is the university version of Dave Gorman's A-Z celebrity list ranking.
1. My university
2. Everyone elses' universities
City should be higher imo
This is like a 40 year old virgin making a list of which instagram models and film stars he'd like to have sex with the most.
I still think LSE, Imperial and maybe Durham deserve to be in Tier 1 with Oxbridge
I would say Tier 2 needs to be split up. Too many.
Oh no! Honestly, I don't really think that you can 'tier' Universities in such a fixed way, I actually think that doing so, is fundamentally a huge mistake, and perpetuates this ridiculous elitist perception of Uni. What about subjects such as teacher training; historic to Liverpool Hope, or in Media and Film related courses; for example Edge Hill's amazing facilities and tutors.
You cannot bundle all Universities in together in such a way, people ought to do more research on what Universities have contributed to their specific, chosen field, instead of gawping over a name. It results in very under qualified graduates, particularly in my field of work!
