I think it's not bad, but not great. check out the times.co.uk for the league table, to get an idea of its accademic side, or the unnoficial student guides site, for an insight on student life etc.

Not sure, I found it by following links, but lost the address. You could always go to the open day if you're unsure.

I would say The Times is the more reliable source, BUT only up to this year.

They added a "Destinations" column which I think totally ruins the whole league table, wrecking the rankings - absurd 20-place movements up and down of universities as a result. Now I think it has gone completely out-of-league for accuracy.

The problem with the new criterion is that they don't take into account what kind of employment students are in after graduation. For example, in this year's law subject rankings in The Times is completely screwed up beyond recognition. University of Reading has always been 30-ish to 40 for many years and this year, out of the blue, along with universities which are not acclaimed in law like Strathclyde make it to the top 10 of the list, all because of that extra column in the tables. Both of those universities happen to have a 100 percent employability score. It's preposterous. They can be employed for being waiters after graduation as far as I'm concerned, and that would still contribute to the points. On the other hand, top universities in this field are pushed down, for example King's and Leicester.

Now I would turn to the Guardian rankings. They are far more in league than the messed up Times.

Hopefully economics and management at oxford, but probably won't get in.

Sorry for having drawn this of the topic though.
