LOL, really? I think people try and do that here (go to oxford brookes and then say they go to oxford - conviniently missing out the 'brookes' part).(Original post by jiefei_ma)
in my country(China), only those who are scientist or staffs and students from key science universities have heard of Imperial.
most people in my country have heard of the names of oxbridge, but know nothing about them i.e. they dont know the university of oxford or cambridge is made up of 30+ colleges, and some people (er..my senior high school teachers) even believe that the university of Cambridge is located in London !! umm, ridiculous enough? no, most of them believe the uni. of Birmingham is better than Imperial or LSE, cos they havent heard of Imperial or LSE. a guy who is studying at Oxford Brookes can fool people(well, not all, of course) in China by stating that he is a member of the university of Oxford. lol
