    Hello,
    I'm not British, so I'm not familiar at all with universities (I'm aiming at Veterinary) and with what they represent with themselves.
    For example, Oxford and Cambridge are the most recognised universities, but in Cambridge in the third year you do sth else instead of Veterinary (Zoology, Anthropology etc.) what is, in my opinion, senseless.
    In rankings I cannot see Oxford and the first place belongs to Royal Veterinary College, University of London.
    I would be very thankful if someone tell me the differences between those universities (maybe in some the emphasis is put on sth different, for instance cattle, or maybe other are better at clinical studies).
    Sorry for my English

    Oxford doesn't run a veterinary medicine course, which is why it's not listed in the rankings for that subject.

    Generally speaking, the standards of teaching at all vet schools are regulated and therefore comparable, so you should do a bit more research into entry requirements, course structures and teaching methods, and attend a few open days if you can, in order to decide which universities you should apply to. It's a very personal thing, so it's almost impossible for anybody here to tell you that a certain vet school is better than another.

    League tables are the last thing you should be looking at when choosing a vet school. I wouldn't even bother looking at them at all
