I’m tired of looking at university rankings that rate ‘graduate prospects’ at Loughborough two or three points higher than those of Oxford. Or ones that put Edinburgh 51st (top 20 globally)

Can anyone offer a completely undiluted and straight forward UK league table (top 10ish)

Thanks

It depends on the subject, but Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial are certainly in the top 10.

League tables are faulted in lots of ways. The best way to look at scoring unis is by course. If you want accurate representation, look at the stats for your degree.

You have to take league tables with a pinch of salt because many of them focus on attributes that you either don't care about or don't think too important. It is more important, to me, to focus on the strength of your course, the overall university experience and whether you think it would be a good fit for you.

In my opinion, the ‘overall’ rankings are as follows:

Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial, LSE, UCL, Kings College London, Manchester, Warwick and Durham.

Why do you think Loughboroug's rankings are so good for graduate prospects?

My opinion is that it has something to do with them offering a year in industry to every student plus lots of opportunities for their students to have positions of responsibility on campus.

I have relatives/friends/colleagues that have graduated from Oxbridge and despite them being pretty intelligent, they are not overly well-rounded individuals and not ones that I particularly enjoy working with.

General uni league tables seem a bit pointless to me. You want to look at what's good for your subject.
