I've been sifting through numerous university staff list pages and checking out the credentials of various professors. It seems that 9/10 times they are from RG/Oxrbridge. This is understandable as RG/Oxbridge are harder to get into than ex-polys, and therefore they would be more likely to produce graduates of a higher calibre, but it made me wonder: are ex-poly students disadvantaged when applying for post-graduate positions? Why is there such a discrepancy in the academia?
Moreover, do you know any good professors who obtained their BA/Bsc in an ex-poly?
Which unis have sent theirs?
