    Not really, Dundee was 2nd last year behind Warwick who isn't eligible for the first time this year - if anything it's the most logical result haha (even though I know **** all about Dundee )

    Dundee is first in the UK for Life Sciences, was voted No.1 Scottish Uni by The Times, and is a non RG uni. I'm not surprised it's first and I go there.

    You study a Life Sciences subject? :holmes: Why did I think you were a politics student...

    Also, not at all sure of the claim in bold. Edinburgh would have to deteriorate significantly for that to be true, I think.

    Ah. What do you study, then? :beard:

    University websites can always find some league table or other to big themselves up. A visiting Martian unfamiliar with advertising could be forgiven for thinking that all universities are the best at everything and being confused by it.

    Ah, so I was right. I'm always right. :moon:

    Yeah, that's definitely something that might deceive those that don't look for detail. Well done to Dundee, regardless. :lol: Also, I've always felt that Dundee has one of the best websites of any UK university, except maybe St Andrews.
