Bumbling Leeds Beckett send out Oxford Uni prospectuses

Oxford is currently 100 places above Leeds Beckett in the University rankings

Bungling Leeds Beckett bemused sixth formers around the country last week when they sent out prospectuses for Oxford University.
The document, detailing what one of the most renowned universities in the world had to offer, caught prospective Beckett undergrads off-guard.
Those who sent away for the former poly’s pamphlet received the Oxford literature in Leeds Beckett packaging.

Demetria Ayako, 17, from Derbyshire said: “It was fine by me, I was looking at Oxford anyway, so receiving a prospectus from there wasn’t a problem.
“It was just rather confusing considering Leeds and Oxford are unrelated as far as I know. it was a rather strange affair.”
It’s not known what caused Beckett to distribute prospectuses for a university exactly 100 places above them in the UK university rankings.

Shrewsbury sixth-former Lily Wright was rather perplexed by the arrival of the collegiate catalogue.
She said: “My reaction when I got it was ‘What the **** is this?'”
Leeds Beckett University said they were investigating the error.
This isn’t the first time the uni’s marketing has caused confusion. Last year it usedmedics from rival Leeds University in its ad campaigns.

True, but that just seems to be taking things to the extreme. She's either playing things really safe or is a bit delusional, unless she's planning to look at every single university in the UK.

The same company probably ships out prospectuses for most Universities.
