What Your University Says About You Watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I've mostly included Russell Group Universities, but here's my impressions of these different universities. Agree/disagree? Your opinions?

    University of Birmingham - relatively intelligent people who you could go get a pint in the bar with; mostly decent down-to-earth types who'll probably end up being a manager later in life

    University of Bristol - posh kids who couldn't get into Oxbridge

    Durham University - even posher kids who couldn't get into Oxbridge

    University of Cambridge - half posh public schoolers, half geeks who can't maintain eye-contact for more than 10 second

    University of Oxford - see above

    Cardiff University - any sheeps for ****ing?

    University of Edinburgh - girls with names Tilly and guys with names like Oliver who come up to Scotland to work semi-hard

    University of Exeter - posh country tw**s

    University of Glasgow - where the smart Scottish kids go

    Imperial College London - day 16 and still no sight of a female; smart kids with loads of internationals

    University College London - cool liberal people who have a brain and internationals

    Kings College London - where you go if you didn't get into UCL

    University of Leeds - where slightly dim public schools go

    LSE - very smart serious people afraid to smile

    University of Liverpool - why is this even a Russell Group?

    University of Manchester - mix of regular decent types and posh kids who want to go to a big city to have a good time and still a good degree

    Newcastle University - full of posh, public school kids who have names like Jeffery Wonder-Wotsit who've immigrated from the South and people who couldn't get into Durham; full of posh girls with their legs open

    University of Nottingham - where middle-class kids go to meet other middle-class kids

    Queen Mary - I thought this was a Sixth Form College?

    Queen's University Belfast - most down to earth of all the Russell Groups

    University of Sheffield - nicey nice types who couldn't get into Newcastle or Leeds

    University of Southampton - middle-class kids whose idea of a good time is... well they don't really have a good time due to being a bit dull

    University of Warwick - smart kids who like concrete

    University of York - boring kids who want to be around other boring kids in a boring area and get a decent degree

    St Andrews - basically an extension of Durham

    University of Bath - full of nicey nice people again and hasn't been discovered by the public schools yet

    Loughborough University - not the brightest but damn they can play rugby

    Durham has it's fare share of posh kids. Not all of whom are arrogant and self centred. But it also has a lot of your average People too, I consider myself to be average, at least socially.
