    Like any educational statistic of this sort, the idea that "learning" can somehow be measured is either woefully underestimated in terms of complexity, or is simply false.

    Ah ok, thanks for the reply! I won't take much notice of it then. I'll stick to the league tables, open days, course structure etc. to make my decision
