LL.B at NTU - University status in 1992
LL.M at Middlesex - University status in 1992

So both Modern/New for both of my Law degrees. Enjoyed Middlesex. Loved NTU.

Could've gone to older/'better' Uni's for both degrees but they were my choices based on more than just age or prestige.

Some of NTU's older buildings are beautiful. The mix of modern architecture and ancient features of the Newton(1950)/Arkwright(1877) building at NTU is impressive, and award winning.

Prettier pictures if you can be bothered to look, but a glimpse: http://www.hopkins.co.uk/projects/2/113/

What about those at the Pre-Victorian (but not Ancient) universities such as Durham, UCL and KCL?

There aren't any polytechnics any more and ex-polytechnic universities are referred to as Post-1992 or New/Modern Universities.

This is quite interesting, albeit incomplete.

I'd like to see a full poll of unis that regular users go/ went to.
