It's a top uni with a well renowned reputation, and it is one of the top 10 uni's i the UK.

It is very well respected, especially for arts subjects.

The general opinions from UKL seem to be that the place is a bit overated, i.e a good university but not any better than places like York etc. It terms of achievements it wouldn't even rate as good as Manchester.

If this is about Durham University surely one of our fantastic moderators should have moved it to the appropriate sub-forum about 39 minutes ago.

Thank God it's not!!! It's much better!

lol well you can't be German, for you have a sense of humour! lol
Well, even though LSE is ever so good, apparently they haven't got one thing on their syllabus: Tolerance!!! You'll be surprised to hear that, yes, German people have a sense of humour, and that Lord Dahrendorf, who is German as well, used to be Vice-Chancellor of the LSE.

Gnostic are you so passionate about LSE because of the respect and admiration you will get or the high paid job you will obtain afterwards or something else?

Neither of the two reasons I mentioned are guaranteed and there is far more to life than a degree, which I think many of the people on this forum are oblivious to.

And Bertrand Russell lectured 'German Social Democracy' at the LSE before the war - I wondered what happened to that....
lol... Well, German Social democracy is very much alive today, they rule Germany with the Greens at the moment! Things have changed... a lot. But I suppose that some people at the LSE prefer to learn about the world in their books, rather than to go there and see for themselves.

My flatmate went to Durham she absolutely loved it as did all her friends so it sounds like a decent place to me. They all seem to have done pretty well jobs- wise too.

Durham is a very good university and it's an absolutey gorgeous place to boot. A friend of mine did a degree in computer science there. It's a much nicer place to work than Manchester, put it that way.

I think Kosovo is probably a nicer place to study than Manchester.
But you are a complete **** and your opinions are utterly irrelevant.

You are without doubt the most snobbish person I've ever encountered.

While Manchester might not be the most aesthetically pleasing place on planet earth, it certainly has character, which is something that must be completely alien to you. Unless Plato wrote something about it, of course. Because that would make it relevant.

Also, the University itself is very good. Of course, anything that isn't Oxbridge or LSE in your book is not worthy of your gracefully superior presence.

I went to stay with a friend who is at Van Mildert, she and many others there- think that college allocation is a bit snobby - in the prospectus VMil is described as a "special community" which basically means a higher number of state school people than the other colleges. Its true!!

The scenery is nice, but not as nice as some Unis, personally i thought lancaster was quaint but not so isolated. You'd be stupid to base a decision on view from a window!!

I didnt really like the feel of it when i was there it felt like a "jolly old boarding school"!! (not trying to offend people)!! Its social side is a bit lacking, there is not as much student diversity as at other unis, as most are white middle class. The only thing i liked was the strong rowing tradition, (not because i am a snob, i learnt to row at a local club not at some private school).

But hey!!..........
