    where is ucl? that a pretty bizarre list but fair enough, useful to wave in the lse obsessed childrens faces. pride forces me to rank nottingham higher than manchester but in reality there is nothing between them and i'm sure if the UMIST merger goes well then manchester will obviously overtake them. what lets both the uni's (and leeds) down in the ratings is the sheer variety of courses they offer, places like lse which are very specialised do well whilst notts offering arabic studies or whatever will be dragged down.

    ratings are stupid. unless backing up my argument

    I don't see that list as a rub in anybodies face, least of all LSE. Places like LSE and Imperial specialise which means people will tend to go into a narrower range of jobs than they would do if they had a wider range of degrees. A table that shows 'any job, any subject' is bound to be misleading for specialised institutions so to be honest, it is not viable to say it degrades LSE at all. If you look at chartered accountancy league tables, LSE is the top recruiter whereas not many people doing social sciences would get a job being a marine biologist, par example.

    No, you must have mis-understood, I said the top employers not just anybody. Any graduate can get a job with British Gas or Sainsbury's, I mean magic circle law firms and blue chip investment banks.
    Ok maybe the Manchester Bashing was wrong but you must admit there is only one place with a Manchester postcode worth living in and thats Didsbury. Friends of ours live in Alderly Edge in Cheshire but two of the children still go to Manchester Grammar, must be tough with all that travel. Maybe they should take a leaf out of London's book, i.e. the Docklands redevelopment. Salford Quays is not the way to go, common..

    Didsbury is not that good, there are loads of other areas in Manchester just as nice as Didsbury such as Chorlton (it at least offers all the same things, bars, countryside, great public transport, near the city centre, lower than manc average crime rates) and Heaton Mersey/Heaton Moor offers less amenties but is probably nicer in terms of scenary. Then there is parts of Altrincham though thats going a bit too far out of Manchester.

    I wouldn't personaly want to live in Salford Quays because its in the middle of no where.

    Oh, I'm sure the Heaton's come under the Stockport postcode SK? Well what do I know I'm only a southerner.

    And just to add a bit more detail: If you include the detaila about recruiters looking specifically to recruit graduates of certain subjects the ranking is as follows:

    And I can't be bothered to transcribe the rest - York is down in 28th place (and my beloved Soton is 18th )
    The same York that doesn't have a med or law school?

    I have to agree with annoying whatshisface in saying that I would rank Nottingham and York a tier higher than Manchester. Remember though this is all personal opinion. Nothing even to do with being campus based or city based, just the fact that in my mind I do see them as more prestigious.

    Hey, never mind Manc what about the wonderful University of Leeds. It's a top uni and has a good reputation. The Sunday Times Univeristy Guide 2003 described it as ''one of the finest universities in the country ''.

    It's is also Britain's most popular university for the second year running.

    you are certainly joking right????
    Warwick is an excellent uni...
    I would never suggest that Warwick isn't an excellent uni, I just think that it has much to prove before its ranked alongside UCL, Imperial etc...

    No you are right it is technicaly in Stockport but as they border Didsbury its still virtualy in Manchester. The Heaton's are apart of my 'stomping ground' so I consider them to be in Manchester.

    No real surprises? The likes of Oxford Brookes above Nottingham, Bristol, Warwick and Bath surprised me.

    Both are generally heavily biased in one way or another. I find it easier to ignore them an try and make up my own mind which I think are the stronger institution. You can quote tables forever but there is still someone compiling them wiht thier own views and that will have a serious effect on the outcomes of them.

    I tend use tables with caution and as a rough guide only - I am however interested in student opinion - What's the views on Manchester for Economics? Reputable? Good department? Anyone heard or know anything?

    I love Manchester so Im going to reccommend it very higly indeed. I think the uni will be a huge player in education after the merger and (on a slightly less biased not) the accounting, finance and economics courses at Manc are supposed to be very good. I don't know anyone studying economics there personally but I think its a well respected course from what people seem to say...
