    Define 'a good one'?

    It's very sub-par compared directly to Russell Group universities, but what subject are you going to apply for?

    Oxford Brookes is a university in it's own right, not a college.

    Pro: You can tell people you went to Oxford
    Con: You didn't actually

    It's certainly not as good as Russell group universities, but if you are unsure of how many offers you will get there's no harm in putting it down to guarantee having two offers to accept.

    Not really for Law or Politics - you'll only want to put it there as a backup in case the others reject you
