    Meh. League tables! :rolleyes: Here's what I did : looked at the guardian, followed by the times, followed by every other league table I could get my hands on - and then ignored all of the stupid conflicting information that I'd read and did something practically unheard of - made my own mind up about where I'm going to spend 3 years!!

    Honestly, you'd think if ppl were intelligent enough to do a degree they'd be able to think for themselves

    All this talk of leagues is something I havent missed from ukl!!

    It'll always go Oxbridge, then a short group of LSE, UCL, Imperial who are always very close to the top, then the following thirty or so universities constantly rotate and will have done again when we all graduate. So it doesn't really matter.

    League tables only give half the story, I am at a university ranked 68 on the Sunday Times, I am happy where I am and so far I've got a good job because of it. For most jobs employee's don't really care that much about league tables.

    Just get a good degree and good A-levels. Thats much more influential than the university you go to as the university you go to could just reflect how lucky you were in the applications lottery. Possibly with the exception of Oxbridge.
