    No, I go to Leeds. But if your unsure why it doesn't seem as popular maybe it's an idea to visit it for yourself to see why or just to generally form your own opinion.

    :woo: for sweeping generalisations. Have you been there recently? or is that just jealousy flowing down the M62? every city has it's bad parts you pillock. OP I'd have no idea mate, I didn't even know that was true.

    Lol at the person who said Liverpool was horrible. Maybe if you saw Kensington, Toxteth and Croxteth, yeah, I agree. With the same logic, Moss Side represents Manchester as a whole, or "hole" if you prefer a pun.

    To answer your question: it doesn't really matter. Pick a uni you'll actually enjoy going to instead of basing you choice on league table rankings.

    Everyone's entitled to their own opinions about a city, but as stated earlier Liverpool has good and bad parts like every city.
    I think its quite an unusual city, as like newcastle, its near the coast so has quite quirky bits to it.
    From my experience with law firms it has been rated highly in terms of reputation, possibly because the lawyers are older and liverpool was the original redbrick so it has a traditional reputation despite its lower rankings in the league tables (which most employers know nothing about). Lucky for some and unlucky for others, perceived reputation is more important than league tables.

    Everybody has mixed opinions about Liverpool with all the negative feedback coming from people who are located in Manchester/London so I'd only take advice from people who have lived in the city for more than five years.

    Liverpool University does have prestige, with the most nobel prize winners of the redbricks after Manchester. I don't know where you get the impression that it's not rated, it's not as good as Manchester but it's easily as good as Leeds and Newcastle. It has a superb History department, coming second in the latest research assesment and brilliant Vet, Medical, Engineering and Physics departments. The only area that Liverpool lags behind in is the 'softer' subjects like Politics etc. If you go to Liverpool you'll be asked for good grades, just like at any Red brick. The reason it has not faired well in the rankings over the previous years is because they have tried to cater for everything, thus there are too many courses on offer and some of them are weak.

    For what it's worth I think Leeds is a terrible University, I went there for a year and the people all seemed to be dossers and people with low grades.
