    Yes I think it is, at least among foreigners... A lot of people around me (I'm German) dont know how prestigious Cambridge is and admittedly that used to be the case for me too. though now I like it more than Oxford and if it offered PPE I would've applied there rather than oxford (where I got rejected haha)

    While I concede that Cambridge may have better courses in certain areas, Oxford is still more famous especially to foreigners so have voted to reflect that :rofl:

    Oxford. I guess it's because of the nice posh "oh" sound in it that makes it sound quintessentially English.

    In the UK they are even; beyond that, anecdotal evidence suggests it is Oxford.

    Probably Oxford, especially in English speaking countries thanks to the Rhodes scholarships. In continental Europe I would say that they are equally famous though.

    In the UK, about equal.

    Internationally, probably Oxford. Because Harvard is in a city called Cambridge in the USA, I feel like some Americans might think people are talking about the US city rather than the UK university when they hear the word. Saw that happen in a Reddit post, people thought it was referring to Cambridge, MA. They're more "used to it". Whereas Oxford has a more distinct name.
