    Okay, there seems to be countless threads about this so, one more thrown into the mix shouldn't cause too much trouble and this should hopefully get across most peoples views and therefore reduce the need for new threads.

    People don't generally agree with the Times or Guardian tables, and quite rightly in some cases, so here's your chance to have your own say. To take part all you have to do is first list your top ten UK universities in order, the list should be based on your overall ranking, nothing specific to any subject, and please keep it as unbiased as possible, if you want to give reasons for your choices then please do.

    I'll be along every now and then and tally together the scores to give the definitive top-ten list for UK Learning. To start it off here's my list, reasons witheld :

    1. Oxford
    2. Cambridge
    3. Imperial College London
    4. London School Of Economics
    5. St Andrews
    6. University College London
    7. Warwick
    8. Bath
    9. Bristol
    10. Birmingham

    Current Rankings (Top Ten Only)

    1. Cambridge (126 Points)
    2. Oxford (108 Points)
    3. London School Of Economics (83 Points)
    4. Imperial College London (82 Points)
    5. Warwick (64 Points)
    6. Bristol (61 Points)
    7. University College London (51 Points)
    8. Nottingham (30 Points)
    9. Manchester (23 Points)
    10. St Andrews (21 Points)

    Including : Morgan, rah, KR2004, kingslaw, Pencil Queen, jumpunderaboat, dled, gangrene, BazTheMoney, mobbdeeprob, happysunshine, mg84, Leeroy and deianra.
    Excluding : Dr Blazed and Shiny(for now).

    PS - I hoped that the universities would be ranked on a general broad basis, including things like reputation, teaching and the calibre of the students. I've included some lists that I myself find dubious, but have excluded those that include american universites and those that are clearly taking the pess.

    (gah this thread is so just going to encourage arguments)

    1. Cambridge
    2. LSE
    3. Oxford
    4. Warwick
    5. Imperial
    6. Bristol
    7. UCL
    8. Nottingham
    9. Manchester/UMIST
    10. Edinburgh

    Yeah it might, I forgot to say that if people don't post reasons, then please don't argue with their choices, respect that they don't want to get into a discussion, if however they do post reasons, then feel free to (nicely) argue as much as you want .

    Thanks for filling in the survey, I think the fairest (and easiest) way of ordering the list would be to award ten points for first position, nine for second and so on down to one for tenth and then rank in order of points. Any disagreements?

    Thanks for submitting.

    Could I ask that you only include UK universities like it says in the first post, I don't think it would be fair to the American universities as fewer people would vote for them and they'd be under-represented and most people here will be applying to a UK university, thanks.

    Just to balance things up a little:

    *my* top 10 (ie places I would like to study)

    1. Southampton
    2. Manchester/UMIST
    3. Imperial
    4. Cambridge
    5. Cardiff
    6. Sussex
    7. Sheffield
    8. Leeds
    9. Birmingham
    10. QMUL
    I dont want to criticise you but i thought the idea is like an overall league table of uni reputations throughout the country... not the unis that you would like to study at. the 2 could differ greatly for some people

    Again, i thought the criteria was overall reputation. In your honest opinion Lincoln has a better reputation than oxford?
