    I know uni rankings should be taken with quite a large pinch of salt, but it seems that Glasgow (while often still coming in pretty high, mind you) more often than not comes in beneath Edinburgh, and this seems to be a trend across most league tables. Does anybody know why that could be? Is it really the case that Edinburgh is a slightly better institution, or is there another reason the rankings end up this way?

    I'd like to see the replies to this if anyone knows, personally I'd say they're very similar and in Scotland most people would consider them equally as good.

    I think you're right, as far as I know Edinburgh gets a slightly worse rep in terms of student satisfaction. Some league tables take this into account though, and still rank Edinburgh as higher, which makes me wonder if there's a significant difference in quality of teaching between the two.

    Glasgow is a way better university imo, but i might be biased hehe !

    I chose Glasgow because it ranks best in Scotland for Law, and for Law employability it ranks 1st in the UK (better than Oxbridge !!!)
