    TVU still provides a service. Yes, it may not be upto the high standards of other British Unis, but I am sure that it still provides a good education for those who are committed.

    I don't see what it being partly based in Slough has got to do with it though. You should maybe visit the town. Every town in the country would love to have the number of multi-national companies based in their area that Slough does. Been watching too much of The Office, eh?!

    I read somewhere that there are some good people that came out from TVU.

    What's wrong with Warwick. It has a "slightly" better success rate than TVU, has it not?

    Click on "The Times Top Universities." There we go, you see Warwick just there in 5th place? Now scroll down......a bit more....keep going...there we go! Thames Valley University - number 99.

    What's wrong with TVU. Ok, let's see. Part of it is based in Slough...isn't that a good enough reason?
    There are no halls of residence.

    The people who run the degrees are completely unorganised. The facilities are shocking, the teaching is terrible and students are mostly left to their own devices.

    Back to the table again. Looking at the teaching assessment and library/computer spending,

    Well on location then you have a point, I do think Slough is as bad as its made out to be! As for flight similator's Salford has got one of them too, only 6 universities in the county have one.

    I don't know. You tell me. You're the one studying at that esteemed institution.

    Incidentally, I didn't say there was anything wrong with Warwick. I had assumed you had some personal experience with TVU. I subsequently glanced at your profile and realized that was not the case.

    It has a "slightly" better success rate than TVU, has it not?
    Define 'success rate'.

    What's wrong with TVU. Ok, let's see. Part of it is based in Slough...isn't that a good enough reason? There are no halls of residence. The people who run the degrees are completely unorganised. The facilities are shocking, the teaching is terrible and students are mostly left to their own devices. Half the people who go there end up regretting it. The other half spk like diss, yeh man dont diss our uni innit cos i am da man. Their student welfare services are vertually non-existant. Blahdy blah need I go on. Good day.
    I've never set foot in Slough. However, one man's meat is another man's poison. Forther clarification is needed. Do you know many people who have attended this (TVU) institution and can you prove (statistically) that 'The other half spk like diss, yeh man dont diss our uni innit cos i am da man'?

    Oh and i think you'll find one of your earlier comments was wrong. If you look into it im sure there are far more "immature" students, as you so nicely put it (getting on a bit are we?!?) than mature.
    There's a pic of me available on the forum. Judge for yourself.

    There are no halls of residence. - Because no one would want to move out of their houses in the local area, perhaps ?

    Oh, and for someone mocking the way other people write, you really should learn to spell. Don't they put you through basic spelling classes at Warwick ? :rolleyes:

    i judge a degree's value on its future employability potential. tvu is regarded by most competitive graduate employers as a joke. even tesco (the company i work for) will not accept degrees from TVU for their graduate management scheme.

    I live like 10 minutes from Slough and so go there all the time. I really don't see what people's problem with it is. Ok, so it's not the most attractive place in the world, but then again most towns have tall office blocks do they not? It has decent shops, pubs, etc, and isn't a bad place at all really. There really is too much snobbery about it in my opinion

    I wouldn't worry. I'd have London over Cambridge and Oxford any day. So this must mean UCL is the top notch university. The poster I beleive studies at Warwick and that's in Coventry (or has been said on here before). Crappy Coventry

    What has your appearance got to do with anything?

    No, because we don't need it. So I made two spelling errors. It's an internet forum, does it matter?! There are far more people on these forums that have worse spelling than me - I'm correct when it matters, eg. for essays. I never mocked the way they write, I was mocking the way they talk.

    Indeed it is. But then Warwick University only have Coventry in the address, it is actually a good 20 minutes from Coventry itself. And being a campus uni, not many people actually go into Cov.

    Luton is worse than Slough! In fact, I'd go as far as saying Luton is one of the most disgusting places in Britain...I don't know why ANYONE chooses to go to uni there...it really is the pits.

    :eek: That is terrible!. Hearing this is enough to put me off ever taking my degree to Tesco. Also, i think they would find it hard to rationally justify such prejudice.
