    Any stereotypes for LJMU?

    Liverpool Hope: You can get a degree at Hope for opening a can of beans.

    Seriously the rivalry of the three Liverpool Unis is intense. Going to a pub quiz and have the announcer make jokes about Hope is hilarious. God Am I glad I don't go there.

    HINT : This supposed to be a jokey, light hearted thread - not an opportunity to be openly rude to all students at another University !

    LJMU: People who don't want to be seen or heard.

    They all wear flip-flops, they walk to places instead of taking public transport, most of them are called Tom, and they climb trees when they're drunk.

    I'll tell you now that at Imperial, which is where I study, UCL is the butt of many a joke. We really take the fact that they are ranked lower than us to new levels.

    On my first day at Imperial, the Union President was like, "Well done, everybody, you got into Imperial." She raised her hand as high as she could and said, "Yale is right below you," lowering it slightly, and named some other prestigious unis before falling on the floor and saying "here's UCL."

    Another two I've heard is "the multi-culture system is like a UCL maths student; terrible at integration...", and "bro, that's basic physics; just get out. Shouldn't you be enrolled at UCL?"

    In short, Imperial likes to label UCL people as stupid or badly taught, or pretentious, getting all the hype because it's at least a Russell Group London Uni, for people who weren't smart enough to get into Imperial, and also that they allegedly know this but do sod all to catch up.


    With all that said, however, my friend doing medicine at Cambridge says he applied to both Imperial and UCL, and he strongly believes that UCL is at least better for medicine. But being in the physics department and not knowing many medics here, I don't have any evidence to back either side of that argument.
    False acc. She raised her hand.

    No girls at Imperial.

    This is true. Imperial's excuse? We're specialist in STEM, because we're better at it.

    I'm not going to take this argument too far, I have nothing against UCL. It's a brilliant university. In fact, UCL was my insurance choice.
    You guys have better STEM? Aren't we ranked highest in Europe for Neuro?

    Kent??
    I have never heard a kent stereotype, nor met a kent student. I could see it as a safe haven for middle class students, similarly to Nottingham. Not rahs, just the dull cavity between rahs and lower class. I can imagine there are a lot of normies.
