    But the University of Leeds is quite a posh redbrick university. Those in the know will avoid a university in a posh-sounding location if the university itself has no history and looks like it's made out of cardboard.
    On that basis then Liverpool is a posh university as is Royal Holloway.

    I think the word you should be using is grand rather than posh. There are many grand looking universities in the UK - Durham, St Andrews, Cambridge, Oxford, QUB etc. I can't see too many people choosing a university by looks over reputation.

    I went to an open day at Royal holloway, and a student described the university to me as "quaint" i had to google that firstly, then took the train back to London and hoped Nottingham would offer me a place lol. I wanted nothing to do with it further lol..

    Further state schools would advise any student any Russell group....more then likely which ever one is in that state schools region as a "goal school" if your in the North the discussion will be Durham, in the south it will be Warwick, Notts, etc.
    Northern state schools don't really push Durham- the hall fees are huge so a real issue for most families, and its seen - however unfairly - as a posh kids place. I think the living costs are the real killer - for those looking for a small town Lancaster is far more attractive.

    Those institutions are probably posher than you'd think tbf. I'd imagine both are solidly middle class.

    'Reputation' becomes so subjective after Oxbridge that you might as well go wherever you like really, in the scheme of things. But people from upper-class and public school backgrounds tend to favour the grander looking, older universities over newer ones. They want to represent institutions of impressive historic significance rather than ones that do well in current newspaper metrics (read by the masses), because they do tend to be more 'established' (which is not the same, and arguably even more important than 'reputation' ). Of course that doesn't necessarily mean they're 'better universities'.

    It's not Downton Abbey over here.

    The bloke is pretty standard middle-class having a nice time at uni. I don't see the problem.

    I'd say he's a working/lower middle class Northerner. He has quite a noticeable regional accent in my opinion.

    He does seem a bit artificial though.

    The person does not study at the University of Nottingham and ipso facto is a contemptible swine.

    I think Reflect should look at the Robbers Cave experiment. This sort of in-group vs out-group is not alright.

    He does competitive salsa. And WBS fluffed him up for a video. Of course it's a bit artificial...

    Someone should have told to get rid of the scruffy beard, while fluffing him up.

    More significantly, the key question is where do you place his accent? I am not quite convinced he is Northern. If he is, he's certainly not working class or even low-middle.

    my point a low class or even middle class person, doesnt express their desire and pride to attend the best university possible, that to me is a tell tale sign of a spoiled private school enstilled upbringing.....

    from an american point of view of course...

    we wouldnt focus on things like accent so much, dont forget their are snobs and rich people even in the poorest of towns.

    further, who finds their release in salsa dancing....he couldnt come pretty cheesy....=pretty spoiled generally.

    I am not sure I understand what you're saying. Who's to say WBS is not the best school he could manage? Also who's to say what a better school is? Rankings, someone off TSR, me dad's mate who's had a pint and reckons.

    Who finds their release in promoting Notts on TSR every single day. I am not sure why salsa is so offensive to you, to be honest, or why you think it's a great representation of the smugness of Warwick. If you are so myopic that you allow a PR lass's idea of "salsa would be cool, put that in the vid" sway you from Warwick, then that's your problem.

    Im not offended by anything, i just feel its the literally the most cringe worthy video for university propoganda ever, so impersonal and the sun is shining out of my ass, i went to the best university i could have and i take pride in that and i know this is the best university i could have went to lmao.


    This is all in good fun lol.
