    Most of the people on here talk about 'Oxford' which is maybe because more people are Oxford. So which in your oppinion is a better University and do you have any valid reasons behind your answer?

    is there any point to this argument? both universities are in a class of their own and have their strengths and weaknesses.

    Oxford people can't spell. They use the 'ize' suffix and a double conjunction - i.e. the comma before and.

    I voted for Cambridge -over here (Norway), it is viewed as the most prestigeous.

    That's odd, a lot of people outside the UK view Oxford as the most prestigious.

    It's true - Cambridge is generally viewed as more prestigious, perhaps because it is viewed as more "scientific" and science rules the knowledge hierarchy.

    Cambridge all the way - it comes first academically and hence first in all the league tables.

    Plus, I'm applying there, so it must be the best one

    However, Oxford seems to have built up a more international reputation. Certainly in India/Pakistan etc that's true - it may be because of the widely available Oxford dictionaries.

    Oh oh and it also depends on the individual subject! I don't know, but there seems to be a general consensus that Oxford is the best for Law...I may be wrong.

    lol out of nothing other that uni loyalty, I say Oxford

    The Statistics Say Cambridge Is The Best, Therefore Cambridge Is The Best. We Are On About Generally, And I Base It On Statistics. Obviously People Have Individual Preferences, But All The League Tables Say Cambridge. If You Talk About "prestige", Then Thats A Different Amtter, But Cambridge "is" The Best University In The Uk. There Is "zero" Doubt About That. Its Not Opinion, Its Fact.

    Actually, I think you'll find that scholasticism and humanism have been more prevalent throughout world history
