    You're probably wondering why Cambridge isn't there.
    Cambridge is 12th. TVU is 11th.

    :blah: Insane ramblings
    You do really need to realise that Abderdeen isn't the best university in Scotland. I, and most sane, rational people would definitely rate Edinburgh and St Andrews high above Aberdeen, and Glasgow possibly slightly lower than those two, but still above Aberdeen. For Business/Accountsy type courses, Strathclyde whoops Aberdeen's ass, although Aberdeen is probably the better university.

    Look, don't get me wrong, Aberdeen is a good university, it's a good Scottish ancient, but to say it's on par with places like Edinburgh, St Andrews, Imperial, UCL, and even Oxford as I think you tried to say earlier by posting pics of them side by side is just ludicrous. You need to get your head checked, Aberdeen's good, and you did well to get there, but it's not great, and I think it's about time you came to realise that

    What's wrong with it? Seems pretty standard really. I mean, I guess you could replace LSE with KCL.

    in general - reputation - employability ..
    Depends on the course, but generally (which to me doesn't make any point) it would be as follows:

    * Cambridge
    * Oxford
    * UCL
    * Imperial
    * St Andrews
    * Bristol
    * LSE
    * Durham
    * Bath
    * Warwick

    Queens University Belfast is very nice in terms of aesthetics, that should definitely be up there.

    Why with KCL ? Lol.

    UEA, Aberdeen, Loughborough... right

    All have their positives but those positives do not give them a place in the top 10, imo.

    You're from KCL, I had assumed you were so angry with my inclusion of your rival UCL, that my failure to include you was an oversight too far, and rather than remove any of the others, I took out the weakest one, LSE.

    UEA's graduate prospects are amongst the best overall.
    Aberdeen is in Scotland.
    Loughborough... I know a girl who goes there, she likes it.

    Enough positives for you?

    LSE is great for the courses they offer, but I wouldn't rank it in top ten overall.

    I think you'll find this is somewhat more accurate.

    Depends, Southampton usually isn't in the top 10, but it's the third best in the country for Modern Foreign Languages so it can depend by department too

    I didn't ask for positives. What I meant was that the fact that a university may have a strength in one particular area does not automatically give it a place in the top 10. A person liking the fact that they go to a university is certainly not a criteria by which to place a university up there - yes the top 10 is subjective in many ways but that's just a load of ****. I know someone who enjoys studying at Huddersfield University - so that means Huddersfield should be in the top 10, right?

    And tbh, I'm not bothered about the rivalry between KCL and UCL - both have their strengths in certain subjects and both are overall good. UCL is better, I'm not gonna deny, but frankly I don't really give a **** if KCL isn't in your top 10, considering how jumbled up your top 10 is anyway :teehee:
