    well justification is based on personal opinion really...

    this is just a personal opinion thing btw....

    well, after living in both hong kong and singapore and being in an international school, the official UK university league tables normally are quite different from ppl's perceptions overseas.

    Cambridge

    it's all subjective I would put Imperial on top of lse, of course

    it was a random order and you are right, lse is probably more internationally reknown, or so gnostic tells us.

    LSE - I think I ve heard that somewhere before
    Imperial - ? sounds familar

    Surely Manchester is quite well known. I spent a year travelling and people i spoke to in most of the countries had heard of the university.

    Well known amongst academics or just people generally?

    I think that after Oxford, Cambridge, LSE and Imperial the most well known would probably be the universities located in major cities like Mancester, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Bristol and Glasgow. St Andrews may be more famous now as a result of Prince William studying there. Im not sure about UCL, perhaps people would just think of it as the 'University of London'. .

    Bath, Nottingham, York and Warwick may have gained prestige in recent times but surely not enough to make them really famous overseas?
