Just out of curiosity do you think there’s any uni in the UK that has had a major glow up over the years? Used to be average but its reputation is rising? And is there any uni which is gradually falling in the rankings and loosing its prestige? Genuinely wondering might be a stupid question but oh well

Durham's reputation is definitely rising. It is raising its entry requirements and thus attracts students of a higher academic calibre, who then go on to achieve excellent degrees. I think that Bristol and York's reputations are falling.

Notts and York are declining. They were widely considered among the best a decade ago. Now they are still good, but you don't normally treat them as parts of the best.

Manchester and Bath are rising. I would say they largely replaced the places of Notts and York. St Andrews is also rising. Twenty years ago it's nowhere near Oxbridge. Now the gap is not too evidential.

It's my understanding that York is still one of the best universities for chemistry, and some other STEM degrees. Also linguistics.

Warwick is pretty new but has already gained attraction from banks!
