If you don't get in to Oxbridge, does it mean you are inferior? Watch

    Yes I'm sure Goldman Sachs and Mcskinsey are just lined with Southampton grads

    Newsflash, stop talking socialist ****

    Oxford, Cambridge, imperial, UCL, Warwick or GTFO
    You clearly have no idea about engineering if you think that Warwick, UCL or even Oxford are anywhere near Cambridge and Imperial for engineering. Where did you go, btw?

    and then what? Oxford and London Metropolitan University both cost £9000 for a year. Are you saying that they both provide the same level of education because they cost the same? (Your answer implies that more expensive unis are better)
    normally you pay for quality so hence my university of choice is £12,500 a month as it so specialised but sets you up to a £60,000 career if you work for someone else or a lot more if you choose to work for yourself

    Imperial charges £27k for internationals while Oxford charges £22k for internationals for my course. They both charge £9k for UK/EU students. So do internationals students at Imperial get better quality education?
    High fees don't necessarily mean high quality...
    Stanford charges $14,728 which is much less than Oxford/Imperial for internationals. (hey, so American universities don't charge "far far more" after all???)
    Even if you pay 12k a month you still have to finish your degree and you still have to work hard to get a good degree, and still have to build a career. tbf your university is a rip off, no education is worth 12k a month.

    Erm, maybe after taking into account financial aid for high earning families. But the true tuition cost (without any deductions) is ~$45,729.

    I was rejected from Cambridge and personally I don't see myself as inferior to anyone who received an offer nor to anyone who has/currently studies there. I have 10A*s in my GCSEs and 4As at AS, so personally don't see myself as academically inferior, I just don't think I was the right type of student for that university.

    Oxbridge didn't have the degree I wanted to do because chemical physics is so darn specialised. Only about 30 people apply for it each year. Natural sciences at Cambridge wasn't specialised enough and Oxford wasn't any better. Besides, have any of you seen just how grotty Cambridge's accommodation is? The Corpus Christi canteen has a food standard rating of 3. My local run-down fish and chips shop has a rating of 5, and that place is falling apart. If you've applied to Corpus, you might want to reconsider.
