Just for anybody who wants to stay local, I could do other parts of the UK but I don't really know enough do it. I am bored and thought I would make a post thats at least 2% useful. I am exluding Yorkshire although Shefield is quite close to North West.
1. Manchester/Umist (17) (11) (89) 14
2. Lancaster (24) (51) (93) 37.5
3. Liverpool (41) (43) (89) 42
4. Salford (69) (83) (78) 76
5. Manchester Met (73) (88) (82) 80.5
6. University of Central Lancashire (79) (101) (81) 90
7. Liverpool John Moore's (85) (82) (81) 83.5
8. Bolton (N/A) (62) (N/A) 86
9. Liverpool Hope (N/A) (94) (N/A) 102
10. Edge Hill (N/A) (117) (N/A) 113.5
First brackets indicate Times league table score
Second indicates Gaurdian score
Third brackets are the amount of graduates in graduate level jobs/education 6 months after leaving. (percentage)
The forth number in red is the mean average between the Guardian and Times ranking. Where the Times has no rankings 110 is given as this is the middle between 100-120 (120 being the maxiumum number of universities listed in the Guardian)
The rankings were placed my subjective reputation but the Times backs this up. The Guardian didn't influence my positioning of this league table in anyway.
Isn't Keele more in the midlands?
Hmm, Lancaster more prestigious than Liverpool?
Lancaster and Liverpool both have a great reputation, its probably unfair to say one is better than the other, however Lancaster for the areas I am interested in seems to have the edge, but there isn't really a lot it. I will adjust the league table a little bit, also I agree that I shouldn't have put Keele in it, as athough its not far it is technical the Midlands.
If Keele can be considered as being in the North West, it should be 2nd in your table in my opinion.
Lancaster has a very good management school and a College named after the hill I am currently on.
Ok its finalised now, I am counting the North West as the 'Granada region' which is Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Lancashire.
Does this post not just go some way to proving just how poor North West universities really are compared to other regions?
hahahaha - Bolton really should be stuck off every education-related list possibly produced,
i know of a few people who go there - got D/Es in English and they study it there - terrible lectures and the students need to get told what to do like 12 year olds
