Perhaps Gimperial isn’t so distinguished as we first thought…

I think you're taking the league tables a little too seriously! I'm going to Warwick but, despite what that link suggests, I'm not going to claim that it has a better reputation for Economics than LSE.

League tables are fickle tools used by the masses in order to massage their egos. I posted the above link because i assumed that you were one of the masses due to your unarticulated assumption that "for economics LSE obviously bests UCL". However, I view the two courses at each University as being quite similar in standing, as did the QAA during their last assessment, it would be nice to know exactly how LSE is "obviously" better for economics than UCL, when they are “obviously” quite similar.

I don't remember saying LSE was obviously better for Economics than UCL. I was just pointing out that using only a link to a league table to back up your arguement was as inarticulate as the original comment.

LOL, Ah, i didn’t look at your user name! I assumed you were Mysticism, as this is whom i was making my point to and is also the user who made the unarticulated assumption about LSE.

I agree with your point that league tables mean nothing. I am going to UCL for Law this year and do not feel my Uni is necessarily above any other institution based on these fickle tables, however, Times league tables are sometimes the currency you have to trade in when talking to certain people.

Don't worry, I noticed. League tables can give a good general impression of quality, as long as they're not taken too seriously. They're very good for winding people up though!

To return to oldest University in England, the answer is actually Durham. See same encyclopedia
http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionar...m%20University

Regarding UCL it says

"and the third oldest HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTION in England" whereas Durham is "the third oldest UNIVERSITY in England"

Just to get everything perfectly right.

Actually UCL and King’s are older than Durham. King’s was founded AND got its Royal Charter before Durham was founded.
