What about the Open University?
You dont apply to the OU through UCAS which is why it isnt on the list.

All the "university colleges" and "institutes" are not Universities - they award degrees that have to be accredited by a real university (eg Southampton Institute awards degrees accredited by the University of Nottingham).
Thats not strickly true:

UCW has long had the power to award taught degrees and, this summer saw the 10,000th successful student graduate with a UCW degree.2004

Its measured by many things such as quality inspections, and students numbers.

plus i think there are some missing on that list. I mean like the colleges that make up uni of london are huge and deserve to be listed as unis I think. those colleges are unis really, just with the name college. All though I'm sure that there are quite a number of private unis too, that of course aren#t on ucas. They may not be worth calling 'uni' though, but i don't suppose anyone really knows which private unis are crap and shouldn't be allowed to call themself a uni. so difficult question to answer.
