..... For me it's Goldsmiths College, University of London. In my opinion that's the lowest ranking respectable university. Any university positioned below Goldsmiths e.g. City, Kent, Reading, Brunel, Nottingham Trent, De Montfont etc, etc is not worth attending.

I was just wonderering what's the lowest ranking university you would be happy to attend.

De Montfort, probably. Lower unis get my funding (it seems), and DMU is going up.

Best to base it on the rankings for the subject you want to study. E.g. kent might not be that high for the general rankings, but from what i can remember it was at a repectable position in the subject rankings for law.

This thread will just make some people feel rubbish. My firm is birmingham, my insurance birmingham city. I chose both because they offer the course I have my heart set on studying.

Regardless of what anyone says, any degree is better than no degree, for the knowledge and life experiences you gain. Attending oxford/cambridge does not make you a better/more intelligent than anyone else. Grades are not a measure of intelligence, and if attending somewhere like this would mean being surrounded by and becoming a snob, I would rather go to the lowest ranked uni there is.

That's not necessarily true. I was speaking to a an employer who was saying that he'd prefer to employ someone without a degree than someone with a degree from a rubbish university.

I'd have been happy to attend the very lowest, if it were right for me.

And you would actually want to work for this employer?

-checks the rankings as they stand now-

68th according to the Times Good University Guide is apparantly the lowest ranking uni I'd be happy with, seeing as that's the one I hope to be going to :p:

Oh man... define "happy" OP. Because I can think of many unis, but it depends on the kind of happiness.

Goldsmiths, University of London - simply because it's part of UoL.
Other than that, Reading probably.
