Depends what you define as your average Brit. Someone who has worked down t'mines all their life for example wouldn't have a clue about universities but you find more and more nowadays that the average Brit is quite akin to you and me and that the rough and ready uneducated average Brit is fading away with age(Original post by DarkEnergy)
Most people probably haven't heard of them in the UK; if you asked an average Brit to name universities they'd probably only get as far as Oxford, Cambridge, and any local unis.

Every one of your posts on TSR just consists of you promoting King's and maybe the odd bashing of other universities. It seems like a very insecure thing to do.

Unless you're talking about very specific courses at those unis, like MORSE at Warwick.

Somewhat course-dependent: though Oxbridge is inherently impressive, Law at Bristol or MORSE at Warwick would likely confer greater prestige than a non-flagship course at LSE or Imperial, while attending either of the latter for Economics and Physics respectively will in turn elicit a more favourable reaction than, say, Geography at Oxford.

Oh, and says who? Do you work for Stanford?
In comparison London Met grads have a better than 1 in 10 success rate gaining offers for an MPhil at Cambridge. Seems that Cambridge aren't as academically snobish as some people.

I think everyone can agree London Met is prestigious for being ****

The Stanford endowment is quite nice but Americans, even as individuals or those on grants or fellowships, are paying quite a lot. The American .Universities have huge endowments and providing these opportunities to add Cambridge or Oxford to a CV is practically priceless (if money is no object:-)) For example, just un an undergraduate level: a foreign Cambridge undergraduate from Natsci is paying £29,000 to Cambridge plus a fee of about £12,000 to the specific college (and then typical fees for room, board, student union, etc.)Last edited by Emboite; 02-04-2018 at 22:01.
