List of universities that might be considered "mid-tier"?

I'm trying to compile a list of solid, mid-tier universities. I know rankings might change depending on the program, but in general, what are some mid-tier UK universities?
Robert Gordon’s
Herriot Watt
Abertay
Stirling
Northumbria
Sunderland
Hull
Aberystwyth

its really subjective but id say like any non russell group uni that still asks for BBB or higher in most of their entry requirements
examples id say are uea, aberdeen, kent, canterbury christ church etc

Aberdeens consistently been in top 20 for past few years though 😂.

Hulls also not RG

It’s not but even if it was that wouldn’t make it a top university though.

That doesn’t make it a top university though.

I’d say so. In top 20 (ranked 13th in one ranking). A 527 year old ancient Uni, top for engineering, law, psychology and medicine. 5 Nobel prize winners.

I’d struggle to understand why aberdeen wouldn’t be a top Uni?

Pretty sure ROTL was talking about Hull not Aberdeen

Hi there,

I see Aberystwyth University has been mentioned in this thread - what type of course were you interested in studying? You can have a look on our website to see the type of courses we have: https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/study-with-us/subjects/

Please let me know if you have any questions about courses or uni life, I would be happy to help :smile:
Anna
