I never cared much for this 'better than, worse than' stuff, but it baffles me in my current position because some of the best academics do not work in the 'best' (I use that loosely) universities. Similarly, the majority of those that do work in the 'best' universities do not look down on those of us at perceived 'lesser' institutions in the way that hubristic 18 year olds look down on their peers that do not go to Oxbridge etc. It's all a bit sad.

People on here haven't got a clue because most of the people handing out university 'advice' are still in sixth-form.
this site is toxic to those unsure about whether to go to uni. all those big boy mods who think they know all they’ve done over the years is encourage naive kids into acquiring tremendous amounts of debt for degrees not worth paper printed on

When selecting a university, the course is the most important factor, not whether it is RG or not
