Which is the better uni in general, St. Andrews or Durham?
It depends on the course you want to study there. In addition, do you want to know the gernalisation of which uni is better or by which course you're studying?
I just want to know the general opinion of people in regards to the overall quality of research, teaching and reputation.
Depends on the department (I have to say that, or my St. Andrew's bound friend will have my guts for garters), but while they're both well regarded, I'd probably say Durham has the better general reputation... that's just from the impression I've got.
I'd say Durham but only just plus St Andrews location is pretty poor in my opinion.
so in general, is st. andrews bigger or durham?
