    Manchester, Imperial, etc, are high student:staff where UCL are higher staff:student.

    I guess both have their advantages and disadvantages.

    Advantages: More help from staff, easier access to staff, smaller classes/seminars/tutorials, know everybody on course, etc

    Disadvantages: Less students, students talk with students about problems before they go to teachers, course I wish to study has a lot of emphasis on group work, one person gives the lecture, so regardless of how many staff there are, you ask that person anyway

    I'm just curious to which current students prefer?
