In terms of academic reputation of the university as a whole.

In other words, which universities in England do you think hold similar status compared to the Scottish universities?

e.g. St Andrews, Heriot Watt, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Strathclyde and Highlands and Islands.

You can look at league tables online to see the highest ranking english universities if that's what you're after.

i always see people saying that league tables aren't an accurate depiction of what people think are the best universities so that's why i'm not relying on them but rather on the opinions of people on TSR

Outside of the UK the only Scottish Unis most people have heard of are Edinburgh and St Andrews. The English equivalent (arguably more well known/more prestigious) are Oxford and Cambridge.

This is probably correct.

I somewhat agree with the Edinburgh/UCL and Glasgow/KCL groupings, but in my view no university in England is close to St Andrews. Durham has similar entry standards and focuses on undergraduate education, but it also has roughly twice as many students, half the proportion of international students, and is over 400 years younger than St Andrews. I think the closest thing to St Andrews in England would be a cluster of ancient, highly international, less competitive Oxbridge colleges (near the sea).
