    Have a look at the main university forums on here for league tables.
    There no doubt won't be a Scottish uni in the top five, nevermind Robert Gordon.

    I think most people will have different ones based on "where that clever boy from down the road went" and such.

    Yeah, they two are always there, as is Imperial. Then it would probably be the likes of LSE and UCL. This is probably the general consensus, but it changes all the time.

    whats LSE? i'm guessing UCL is university college london. I heard bristol and durham were both meant to be pretty decent unis though, also edinburgh and St Andrews should be up there

    LSE is the London School of Economics. Yeah Durham, Bristol, Edinburgh and St Andrews are all good unis, but Oxbridge and Imperial are usually regarded as being in a different league.

    If you want a debate on this, the people in Universities would no doubt be happy to oblige. It's also been done to death elsewhere on TSR.

    wheres warwick? sorry, i didn't know it had already been done a lot before, i'll shut up!

    RGU is a lot newer than most/all of the other scottish unis but really it depends on what course you want to study?and if you want a university steeped in tradition RGU isn't the way to go, Edinburgh and Aberdeen would both be better bets for that

    Yeah but not necessarily for graduate level jobs, just for any old job ie cleaner lol
    Wrong. The Times listed it as Number one in the UK for Graduate employment earlier this year (2006). Prior to that it was second to only Oxford for Graduate employment.

    That is the percentage of students in graduate level jobs within 6 months of graduating. You have to admit that they're good at getting graduates into Jobs.

    1988 - how did you get into law and management with those higher grades lol?! thought english was important lol.

    well there has been a lot of debate about whether RGU include all jobs or just graduate level ones, i'm sure i read somewhere it was around 60% into graduate jobs and the rest were just employed somewhere

    Hmm, I now face a dilemma :P

    I don't know where to go, Cale or RGU basically I think that I want to go to RGU, but theres a possibility I could be going alone, and I am generally quite shy which would probably lead to me becoming anti social, not that I would want to be, leading to me becoming an outcast and unhappy. Whereas, if I stayed at home and went to Cale, I'd be able to commute and see all my friends as usual. Decisions decisions...

    I have just dropped out of RGU after studying Adult Nursing for 16 months up at the Garthdee campus, all I can say is it's a joke! My opinion only guys, so no flames I hear that other Departments may be better, but many of my mates think the same thing. My brother attended Law and Management and he was hardly there. For one test I had, the lecturer had been drinking the night before, stuck the answers up on the overhead, then left the room, never did come back for the rest of the lecture. Only RGU eh! It seems to be a long running joke that even the RGU students see themselves as second class to Aberdeen Uni. My mate has been to both Uni's and the quality of the teaching and coursework materials are much better at Aberdeen Uni. My Psychology mate transferred from Aberdeen to RGU to do the same course cause she wanted more time off to sleep off her hangovers, that my friends, says it all:rolleyes:
