A friend back in the US has asked about top-10 universities in the UK. I explained some of the problems associated with ranking UK universities, including the fact that a number of different rankings are available. It seems that the Good University Guide and the Guardian, though, are two of the most widely discussed. A consolidation of their most recent rankings (assuming the numbers posted on the Good University Guide page reflect rank) look like the following:
1. Cambridge (Tie)
1. Oxford (Tie)
4. St Andrews
Any thoughts on this ranking? Also, how do you think the UK top-10 would compare to US top-10?
Loughbrough? You can't be serious! No offence to people studying there, but I can think of at least 15 Universities that are better.
I would say the top 10 are:
7. St Andrews
I've probably missed some though.
I personally do not believe that St. Andrews is the #4 university in the UK.
Whats so good about warwick?
oh god, somebody close this thread quick. please, just close it.
What about Manchester? I thought that was better than Notts.
Loughbrough is 6th for the Times up urs Loughbrough haters (tis my insurance)
Who cares which is best, as long as you learn something at whichever university you attend.
Yes, I'm awaiting unfounded criticism from insecure people who get a sense of reassurance by putting other people down due to the university they attend.
What's worse, a lot of people posting their opinions haven't even started their course, and thus have no clue about what they're saying.
