For the last 10 years (i think) the top 4 unis in this country have Been Ox, Cam, Imp and LSE.

Can anyone see any of the other universities breaking into this top 4 and causing some disruption? The Sunday Times suggests York.....I understand their reasoning, it's just got 4 new professors, a 25 million pound science complex, and new medical students, it's looking up

Top 5 for what?

Research? (and in what subject?)
Teaching? (and in what subject?)
Campus/Accomodation?
Nightlife?
Loose women?
Fit women?

It's all subjective.

Well I would go as far as to say there is not one uni that is excellent in every area. For instance, Cambridge might be great academically, but it has no nightlife (I should know, I live 10 miles away!)... Also, Cambridge et al aren't necessarily "the best" in each and every subject. In maths for example, Bath is supposedly the best in the country...

IMHO the "big ones" are Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, LSE and Edinburgh!!! Of course this is entirely dependent on which course you look at but in my own opinion they are the best!!!

Why did she go there, when UEA is the best in the country for creative writing? I guess she's just not that good of an author..
