Other than the obvious Oxford vs Cambridge, do others have rivalries?

E.g. does Nottingham rival with anyone? Does Manchester?

Durham and Newcastle because Newcastle think they're the best university in the north of England.

The only rivalries I've heard of other than that are the ****ter universities in a city feeling intimated by the better one. E.G. Aberdeen and RGU

In London: UCL vs KCL aka Godless Scums from Gower Street vs Strand Poly Chavs

There are stronger name calling, but I shall refrain or I would get told off by moderators

It depends on the subject surely like Warwick vs Imperial when it comes to Maths, or UCL vs Warwick vs LSE when it comes to Economics or UCL vs QMUL when it comes to medicine, or Imperial vs Oxford for Engineering i could go on and on...

Why on Earth would LSE and Imperial be rivals? They specialise in different areas of academia.

I somehow doubt that UCL feels that threatened by Barts. :rolleyes: Try Imperial or King's.

Haha, no worries. There isn't that much of a difference in standard between medical schools but, in terms of prestige, UCL's natural rivals in London would be Imperial and King's.
