Hey there you bunch of lovelies!
I was just wondering, I know certain employers find it preferable to employ someone from a red brick university. I was just wondering-other than cambridge and oxford and liverpool (the "original" red brick university, coining the phrase)....
where the hell are the others?!
If you could let me know I would like to know as Im compiling a list.
I know I should know already. Sorry-I'm not a uni basher.
Salford believe it or not is actually classed a red brick uni. Manchester, UMIST, York, Lancaster etc. Threre are loads, you have traditional unis such as Oxbridge, Durham etc, they are not red brick they are in a league of their own.
I would say at least 40 universities are classed as redbrick.
we are so in a league of our own!!!!!!
What is the difference between a rebrick and a traditional uni?
Is there a chronologically ordered list of University establishment in the UK someone can point me in the direction of?
First of all, ask yourself, roughly what grades your expecting and then what you want to read. If its at the top end look at some top ten uni's and 1 or 2 of the others. If not, just do what everyone else does and apply to york or durham, you're sure to get in.
