    Infested with Rahs who love drinking and pheasant shooting. Prepare for the waves of privately educated chino wearers, as they swarm you with their excuses for almost getting into Oxbridge.

    You guys have better STEM? Aren't we ranked highest in Europe for Neuro?
    You're above us for neuroscience, I'll admit, but not the highest.
    And we're also higher than UCL in physics, chemistry, biochem, mathematics, computing, engineering, etc.

    Sheffield- well meaning clever students who are not that career focused, in the main, when compared to other solid Russell groups such as Nottingham/Warwick/Manchester

    Newcastle: middle-class children with a wild side suppressed by the expectations of their wealthy family, who want to immerse themselves in a geographically secluded city to take advantage of the many clubs and party for three years before inheriting a job at KPMG from their father.

    Aberdeen: a grey city that lacks colour, where historic beauty contrasts with 1960s architecture to cater for the bright European students who flock there for free or heavily subsidised tuition.

    UEL: where academic inability still manages to have a rivalry with the the highly regarded London Met.

    Liverpool: the unloved Russell Group institution that scores marginally lower in biased metrics, featuring in the jokes of TSR snobs.

    Nottingham: where introverted Chinese meet extroverted British.

    LSE: the socially retarded UCL.

    UCL: the academically inferior LSE.

    Imperial: the LSE of science.

    Durham: the institution that puts a cathedral in your mind, yet isn't part of the University.

    Bristol: where hippies inhale the fumes of drugs radiating from Glastonbury Festival in their spare time whilst succeeding academically.

    Loughborough: where sportsmen meet engineering.

    Manchester: where exceptionally famous alumni, University Challenge success, top-tier global rankings and enormous student body are represented by lacklustre, confused, drug addicted morons in Fresh Meat.

    Surrey: proof that league tables are ****ing inaccurate.

    Warwick: I didn't think it would be in Coventry
    Royal Holloway: A three year dry spell for straight girls who thought it was in London
    Agreed but if people actually don't know the first thing about a university i.e. where the hell it is, they deserve to be stuck there.

    .
    Wildly inaccurate, Newcaste doesn't attract that sort of clientele imo... maybe some with a wild side cos of all the "bangin'" nightclubs but there are better unis and better cities out there for that. Alas though if you don't get in you don't get in.
