    Before anyone goes crazy, I myself will be going to a university not in the Russell Group in September.

    TSR Argument-'There is no point going to university if it isn't in the Russell Group'

    Give your views with reasons.

    I hope that this thread will make an impact on people to make better decisions.

    I doubt many people on TSR will agree with that, seeing as Durham, St Andrew's etc. that lots of people here apply to aren't in the Russell Group.

    I don't think a website has the sentience to formulate an argument. If it does then God help us all.

    The following are Times top 20 universities not in the Russell Group:
    St Andrews
    Bath
    Durham
    Exeter
    Leicester
    Loughborough
    York

    So that's a crap argument, really.

    My view? This conversation is boring, old, and pointless. I go to a uni most deffinately not in Rusell Group in the same city as someone who goes to a 'prestegious' uni and guess what I'm having a better time and getting a lot more out of my tuition than they seem to be. Go figure. It's irrelevant. /thread.

    Erm, well people will see the Russell Group as being more prestigious and better value for money (in terms of teaching, facilities etc.) than the e-word, so maybe that's why.

    But you can't forget the good unis that aren't in the Rg, as has been mentioned.

    Durham and St Andy's aren't in the Russell group whereas universities such as Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, Manchester, Newcastle are, and they're obviously worse...

    Those who say that need to learn what the Russell Group actually is.

    I think if I asked anyone I know my age outside of TSR what the Russell group is they'd probably think it was a Russell Brand appreciation group or just give me a wtf i dunno look.

    If only you'd said Bertrand. Then I would've smiled.

    On the other hand, "there is no point of going to a university outside of the Russell and the 1994 groups" does make some sense.

    Oh I have hope for our fellow youths, it's just my hope is misguided.

    it comes back to the age old argument, which is better, a 1st from somewhere less prestigious, and in this case, not from the russell group, or a 3rd from a university in the russell group. It is irrelevant, there are many good universities that are not in it, and all that matters is that you work hard at your degree.
