    TVU graduates - too immersed in miseducation and petty crime to come on this forum.

    OU graduates - too busy with their corporate interests or wine & cheese evenings to come on this forum.

    UCL graduates - should be granted a subforum on UKL.
    Thats unfair on TVU graduates though. A lot of them are from the local area and can't afford to go to a university further out. I know the place is easy to get into and is probably not the great but its too harsh to brand all TVU graduates like that although if the you go off the stats then a lot of them perhaps shouldn;t be doing a degree and I believe most TVU students are not doing an undergraduate level course, they are doing lesser HE qualifcations.

    I just think there are to many subforums on here and its getting hard to keep track.

    In terms of GDP? :rolleyes:
    You're making this up....figures please if you're not.
    I suspect UCL graduates contribute alot more to the UK's annual GDP growth rate compared to TVU grads.
    BTW the university subforums arent driven by snobbery (what are you on about, i think you're just saying this because your darling salford isnt there)...it's driven by popularity.
    "But Salford is popular!"

    Thats what I was saying. There will be a lot of good quality students there who are from the local area and can't afford to go to a better one further away. Have a look at the profile in the Sunday Times, that states that most the qualifcations are not degree level there, although this may be decreasing.

    Thats a good point actually, there should definately be one for the OU.

    Perhaps a "University of London" section could be made to include UCL,LSE etc
    I've though this for a while now, especially when you consider that there is an oxbridge sub-forum

    If you mean each uni, then i disagree as a sub-forum for eac UL uni is important as well, however to group all the unis together would just easier for everyone. Although some unis such as RHL, Burnel etc.. have almost no representation in the forum so in addition to the most popular UL unis having their own sub forums maybe there should be a general Uni of London subforum?

    UCL...should be granted a subforum on UKL.
    That’s silly, why just a UCL sub forum? Then we might as well have several sub forums for other popular London Universities – which frankly would be a bad idea. A university of London sub forum will encompass most of the well renowned colleges in London. After Oxbridge UOL is also regarded as a premier university.

    Edit: I agree with Kuz, didn't see your post

    No, it's a bad idea. The thought of sharing a subforum with UCL and SOAS students etc...is unbearable.

    And imagine Imperial students on there...."Hi, I'm an Imperial student, let's talk about chess baby, let's talk about chess baby, let's talk about all the nerd things, and the geeky things, chess baby, let's talk aboooout chess"

    Maybe I'm wrong.
