    We all know of Cambridge and Oxford and the top London Colleges.

    But what are the most prestigous universites?

    With some of us having to pay £9k for tuiton fees from 2006 it is even mor important to choose the best university degree possible?

    Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, Edinburgh, UCL, Imperial, KCL, Nottigham are all very respected and known world wide....
