In the UK there are two particular seats of learning that seem to be favoured.

The University of The Fens and Cowley Polytechnic.

Beneath them are the other 'Highly Regarded' Universities such Imperial College, LSE, Durham, Warwick, Queens Belfast etc.

Then there are the 'I got a degree free with my breakfast cereal' universities like Bolton, East London or Anglia Ruskin.

However, those in the know, know.
Cambridge and Oxford are good, but not the best at everything.
For example Bristol is regarded as the best for engineering, and it is more difficult to get into Queens Belfast than it is to get into Oxbridge if you are doing medicine.


However, like it or not, there is Academic Snobbery, and the old school ties are still regarded as a metric of value.
