    Forget the league tables - choose a uni that you like and that offers the best course for you.

    In my opinion only...I think that Bath is a pretty city but it is so small that you can appreciaite that in a day, not three years. The accomodation is very bad and the campus is very small. Of course, I am not saying you should judge on these minor factors but you ought to see it for yourself and you'll see what I mean

    It depends what you prefer at the end of the day but I would not recommend it. Hope this helps...

    well i've seen the place. i saw one of the accomodation which was crap but there's solsbury and something else which was only built in sept and its en-suite, so thats meant to be nice...... surely bath is small, but can't be as bad as coventry

    The city of Bath itself is lovely, I love all the Georgian architecture. It's not that small, but I must admit I've not been to many cities for comparison! Generally Bath has a pleasant atmosphere though, a little touristy in the summer of course, but it's got some good shops - especially Jim's Fudge Kitchen!! And the Abbey is beautiful, I did a concert in there once!

    The Times GUG is considered to be the most prestigious as it is the oldest.

    However Oxford is ranked number 1, above Cambridge. Cambridge outperformed Oxford in all the criteria, except that Oxford were sepnding more on facilities. Therefore you should look very carefully at how a uni scores in different areas (e.g. Teaching Quality).

    Some of the accomodation is, like any University, shite. But the new accomodation is very nice.

    When the new league tables are published what year do they do the results on? 2002 or 2003?

    Also is this new format data going to have any dramatic effect on league tables?
