How would anyone be able to be a reliable judge of this?
Just seems lie an opportunity to diss the unis you dislike, whether you have been there or know anyone from there or not.

Not ‘dissing’ anybody kid. Just want an opinion is all. Ofcourse Oxbridge would be 2 of the 10. Just wanted to know what people felt the other 8 would be.

In your head it's anywhere that rejected *you* so I'm sure you've got LSE on your list.

In reality, none of them. Universities aren't stereotypes.

Why Oxbridge? How many students do you know there?

In terms of academic ability, then surely some of them have a perfect right to be confident? A lot of Oxbridge students are the opposite and have the well known imposter syndrome of not feeling as if they are good enough to be there. No doubt there are some who are arrogant, but you tend to find that at all places you study.

I think its quite a problematic thing to reliably measure.

Easily DMU, takes a mad amount of hubris to think you can just leave a deuce at someone's door and walk off like it's nothing.

LSE is absolutely up there.. Went for a pres there once on my way to saucy and people were having a **** measuring contest of who got the most internship offers and A*s.. I **** you not.

Imperial as well tends to attract proud/sometimes arrogant individuals. Oxbridge of course has its fair bit share. Warwick too.

Certainly can't say we have 'the most arrogant students' but I have noticed that quite a lot of people on my course are pretty overconfident.

Hold on, let me just pull up the yearly arrogance study, which surveys every university in the UK to see where the most arrogant students go. Oh wait, that's not a thing? Well it's a good thing we have TSR, where the users have interacted with a good portion of the 2 million+ university students and can therefore accurately gauge where the most arrogant are. Oh wait...

Seriously, what were you actually thinking when you made this thread? The majority of people here won't have interacted with students from 10 different universities, let alone enough students and enough institutions to reliably judge them. This is clearly just a chance to call out "that one time a student from a university did something arrogant"

Most of what's considered the 'elite' uni's are full of ******s, I'm going to LSE but I know how many ********s there are, similarly I have friends at both Oxbridge and imperial who have encountered a very large amount of ***** compared to my friends at say Leeds and York. Durham and Bristol also have quite a lot. Fundamentally there is evidence for this, a lot of intelligent people are arrogant, one of the misconceptions of the Dunning-Kruger effect is that people think those smart see themselves as less smart than they are, while those dumb see themselves as more smart than they are. This isn't true, there's a correlation between people's ability and perceived ability, particularly for those smarter.

Seems like this isn't a ranking of student arrogance, but instead a list of personal jealousy towards universities. Let's not forget these students at Oxbridge, LSE, UCL... have a reason to be arrogant, they are amongst the best.

I can only speak about LSE as that is the University that I am attending... Don't you realize no one has met enough people from each university to come up with some nonsensical ranking, how do we quantify arrogance... Do you have a scale for that? Also, are you able to distinguish between arrogance and ignorance... There is nothing wrong with being arrogant, in fact, it will only bring success, so perhaps the most successful universities will have the most arrogant students because they have reason to be confident in their capabilities. Perhaps if you distinguished between arrogance, over-confidence, and ignorance, then we could have a more reasonable discussion.

There is never a reason to be arrogant, confidence yes, arrogant no.

Then you haven't truly experienced arrogance, it's a sensation that drives you further to levels that others struggle to achieve. Excessive arrogance leads to ignorance, but the right balance of ignorance and humility leads to perfection.
