Mine is York, so what do you think?
Rate others according to your view of them.
|>>|| No. 4292
I was at York recently.
Pros: Nice facilities, well known for research in a number of fields.
Cons: Brutalist architecture, campus out of the city, quite a posh, upper middle class vibe with little diversity amongst the student body. Nobody seems like they are having much fun.
Queen Mary, University of London here.

I'll try my home university, Swansea.
Pros: Students from everywhere, genuinely good engineering and history departments, nice location on the seafront, some really interesting events on in the past few years
Cons: Infrastructure outside of the uni is only just seeing some of the council cashflow, so while there's good gyms and an tolerable city centre, everything surrounding ranges from unpleasant to slum

Final year undergraduate. Fellow Swansea lad? Quite a few of us on this site, apparently.
|>>|| No. 4296
I've heard good things about the History department at Swansea, but also they seem to have a reputation for fucking post-grads around with promises of funding. On the plus I'd imagine it is a cheap place to study.
|>>|| No. 4298
From what I know of Swansea, the university is the only good thing about the place. The head of my department at uni is originally from there. The rest of the city though, it seems like most of the population is either unemployed or works for call centres or the civil service.
University of Birmingham here.

Can't say I have heard a single bad thing about this uni. Although I did bump into some of the student at some Palestine protests (I was walking past)

You aren't far wrong. The people with the good jobs are normally commuters from outer villages, Cardiff, further out, or they're people who've moved to one of the more affluent areas of Wales (Gower, Mumbles, etc.) from England.
As someone who's lived here my entire life, I can agree that the university is one of the few worthwhile areas of this place. It's been a lifeline for me when I couldn't really afford to go elsewhere.

Don't know a lot about other unis really. Haven't heard anything other than the names of most of the unis listed above.
|>>|| No. 4304
Excellent facilities, some quite nice areas of campus, but some atrocious architecture. Close to a lovely city, and all in all a well respected institution.
Seems like the teaching is good, and obviously it has a great reputation, but I associate it almost exclusively with cunts who want to become Tory MPs. There are probably good people there, but I imagine a far higher proportion of cunts than every other uni.
I'm University of Nottingham.
|>>|| No. 4305
Cambridge here. Only really have views on unis I've visited or know people at so:
In seriousness, Cam just seems like a much nicer city in my opinion. Also our degrees are ridiculously flexible, whereas from what I remember Oxford locks you into say Physics or Chemistry or a certain type of engineering from the start.
I really liked Birmingham uni when I visited, it's Physics department is really good and was mostly what made me decide to read physics over maths. Didn't really see much of the city but I've not heard too many good things, I guess with any big city you're going to get good and bad though.
|>>|| No. 4307
Oxford has a well deserved reputation, but isn't for everyone. I've heard from faculty and alumni that standards have gone down the shitter in recent years, and the influx of hordes of Americans have only made things worse. Also home of the phrase 'book stupid'. Lovely city though.
|>>|| No. 4308
>Also home of the phrase 'book stupid'.
I think I have an idea of what this means, but could you define it for me, please?
|>>|| No. 4309
Maybe I'll be corrected on this, but I take it to mean someone who is otherwise intelligent but has a poor knowledge of literature and will therefore miss many references.
|>>|| No. 4310
I assume it means not book-smart, as in, not well educated. Someone who is smart but not book smart is intelligent but lacks general knowledge that might be learned from books.
|>>|| No. 4311
>Quite a few of us on this site
Seems to be about 80%, any time there's a location thread loads of Swansea people pop up. I wish I knew why, it's hardly a populous place.
2nd year physicist reporting in.
I've been to Birmingham, Nottingham, Oxford and Leeds on open days and weekends with the ladm8s. All of them seemed as I would expect, except Leeds which I was expecting to be a dump but was quite nice. Swansea is probably the least attractive of the lot actually, but the physics dept is pretty good so I can't complain.
|>>|| No. 4312
It's supposed to be the other way round. They're "book smart" - which is to say they're well-read and academically strong, but otherwise utterly useless in the real world.

Well surely that's just what "book smart" means, "book stupid" would be the opposite.
|>>|| No. 4315
Well, no. That would suggest that Oxford students are somehow better suited to the real world than they are to academia.

You know, I could be a complete twat and scan in my Bod card (library card) so you can see it, but I won't because I'm not that vain. If it's relevant to a conversation, I'll mention it - I'm not out to prove something.

And that lad, is, I think, because we will be meeting for a drink in May. The point was that you are the only one not to namedrop your Uni at every oppurtunity. Altho, as you just have...

Had a look around York during Windows 8 preview and couple friends go there.

'Book stupid' was a phrase used by a tutor in Classics I used to occasionally share a drink with. It came from stories of high intelligence, but general inadequacy that he used to share about his former students.

Yes, that's "book smart". As in "book smart, world stupid".

I prefer the more concise 'book stupid' to that ungainly sentence.

It's hardly more concise if you have to explain that it actually means the opposite of what it says it every time.
|>>|| No. 4347
Do you think you'd need 'book stupid' to be explained to you? That's just old fashioned 'plain stupid'. I'd probably just pat you on the head and ask how your fedora collection was coming along. Like an acquaintance's little brother who is a tad slow.
|>>|| No. 4349
Yes, I think I might, given that at least three other people in this thread understood it to mean the opposite of what you use it to mean, you condescending twat. Understanding what you use it to mean is not something that can be worked out from the words themselves, as their actual meanings imply the opposite. Instead, it requires specialised knowledge only people in your social circle are privy to. That's not intelligence, that's elitism. You utter chucklefuck.
|>>|| No. 4350
You're coming at it from a prole point of view.
He's coming at it from an academic point of view.
You're both right. The way you're saying it, someone who is knowledgeable or intelligent but lacking in common sense is "book smart." The way he's saying it, someone who knows the date of every major battle of the US civil war is "book smart" as they've read a lot of books. Someone who could easily remember such information if they ever bothered to read it is "book stupid" as they're intelligent but unmotivated.
I think the academic approach is more technically correct, but it sounds wrong to me since I'm used to using it in the common usage sense.
My fedora collection is doing just fine. Thanks for asking.

No direct experience, but knew a lass doing languages at Exeter. Seemed on par with Harvard/Oxbridge in that department. Quite posho I think, but that would be less of an issue at PhD level. Overall, I have a reasonable respect for it. But, not justified by personal experience.

Oh I get it now. As in 'what do you mean'.
Yeah, you're shite at this.
|>>|| No. 4418
I go to Nottingham, so can give an opinion on the uni. I've had experiences in both the chemistry and biology departments, both of which seem to have pretty good facilities, and the professors/lecturers generally seem pretty good compared to most of the ones I met at various open days for other unis. The campus is very nice, and the city is alright but a bit ugly in places.
Only real issue is that it's full of cunts. Never before have I seen such a large collection of cunts. Campus halls of residence, the SU, nearby Lenton - all full of cunts.
|>>|| No. 4419
Its okay lad. I just question how you've ended up at a university if something like that could go over you head. Ah well. How is Cultural Studies treating you?

I guess I'd concur with that. So many rahs, they all look like royalty or nephews of Boris Johnson - tall, handsome, rosy cheeks, blonde hair, pink dress shirt with beige slacks and Hugh Grant accent.

What does Karni even do? Whenever I walk past their massive office I can see them pissing about in there, but all I'm aware they have to organise are the rag raids in the autumn semester and that's it.
|>>|| No. 4428
I think they raise money for charity, but their main purpose seems to be fulfilling people's dreams of pretending to be in National Lampoon's Animal House. When I lived in halls, most of the LADs were always doing something wacky for their initiation into Karni. This included getting their eyebrows shaved, getting facial piercings, getting silly haircuts, running around the quad naked, and generally having some epic bants.
I don't know why they need an entire office to themselves.
|>>|| No. 4430
I'm really glad we don't get charity BANT crusaders at my uni. We have agrics and rugbylads who are the worst culprits for drunken carryings-on but at least they don't adopt a sickening guise of holier-than-thou in with the bargain.
The rugbylads are under disciplinary review at the moment for some dirty deeds apparently, I heard that they had a guy with downs on their squad so at some point they stripped him naked and covered him with lube or something like that. I know you get chinese whispers but I wouldn't put it past the sick cunts.
|>>|| No. 4437
I did realise that could be a problem, but I'm not getting paid for this, so thought "fuck it".
But yes, as someone with no connnection at all with Nottingham, "a bunch of lazy cunts" does spring to mind. You got a uni newsrag, Nottslads?
|>>|| No. 4438
Not a newspaper, but we have Impact Magazine which is a bit of news but mostly columns, reviews and opinions from students. Also have NUTS which makes TV show type things such as terrible sitcoms, awkward dating shows, and programmes about Freshers' week. And then there's URN, the uni radio station which I have no issue with except for the fact that half the presenters are twats.

What do you think of Aston? Personally I think it's a bit of a shithole full of dumb people and eskimos. One good about it is the placement year though.. Gives students proper work experience.
|>>|| No. 4459
Aston actually used to be fairly well-respected back in the days my father did his undergrad there, I'm not sure what its reputation is like for the sciences now. Otherwise its student body seems to consist entirely of Lynx-drenched Asian lads doing business studies. I gather its main selling point is that it has "University of" in the name and isn't BCU.
|>>|| No. 4463
Alas, it isn't "University of" anymore, they changed their name a few yearsd back.
I don't get the hate for BCU.
|>>|| No. 4464
>I don't get the hate for BCU.
It's pretty much on a level with a lot of the other former polytecnics, but it's nothing special even on that standard.
Much of the hate is because they changed their name to one almost exactly like the University of Birmingham, and then they started advertising everywhere.
A couple of years ago they had some posters up that seemed to be implying that they are a good university to study at because they were teaching black people in victorian times.

QM alumni here - I enjoyed being somewhere that felt a bit fresh, especially as a geography student with the broad range of ethnicities and foreign students knocking about; however it lacks any prestige and it's awkward as all hell having to explain where it is whenever the old 'where did you graduate from?' question comes up.
Exeter seems nice, bit 'rah rah'.
Durham, fucking hell. Closest shop to the main Uni is a 'Jack Wills', which says it all. Good teaching though.
KCL/UCL seem pretty cool if a bit uh, tranlucent? Due to their city-wide campuses. Great for various subjects though.
|>>|| No. 4585
Fellow Queen Mary alum here. I wouldn't say it lacks 'any' prestige, it is well known for certain subjects and is certainly very popular research-wise. Just ask the BBC; Radio 4 would fall apart without QM Academics.
The location is still a bit of a problem for many non-Metropolitan folk, as is the diversity. This reflects badly in the undergraduate league tables, and so has a knock-on effect to the universities general reputation. A QMUL degree is well recieved at top universities though, take my word for that.

I might just end up skipping breakfast most days, I haven't actually eaten breakfast properly in months.
|>>|| No. 4744
Echoing this. When I lived in catered, I went to the dining hall on the first night I arrived because there were fire safety talks and stuff. It was really busy and the food was bad and people were everywhere. I never went to the dining hall again, missing breakfast and dinner for an entire year. Luckily we had a £5 allowance every weekday on our uni cards, so I could get lunch from the SU centre and eat it in a quiet area. Weekends used to just get takeaways. Also was anxious about seeing the other people who lived on my corridor so I used to sneak out at ridiculous hours, and if I knew they had doors open/people round I'd lock myself in my room and piss in my sink if need be.
|>>|| No. 4745
If I can make one suggestion to anyone starting at uni this year, it would be to not do this. For me uni was the place where I started to get over my social ineptitude, and I did that by forcing myself to be social with the lads I lived with, despite the fact that most of them were obviously not friend material.
Don't go to uni and spend the whole time hiding in your room like a hermit.
|>>|| No. 4746
Sinkpisser here, this lad's right.
I probably could have socialised with the people I lived with, but I didn't make enough of an effort. Now I'm a friendless depressive getting shitloads of therapy. Don't be me!
|>>|| No. 4747
Yeah, I did. But the food was so crap it didn't seem like it was a big deal.
I'd also be at rowing 0630-0845 onward with evening training, and I'd be on campus and not fucked/have the time to walk back to halls, so I'd often have to miss breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Fucking rip off.
|>>|| No. 4748
Oh and I ended up an antisocial sinkpisser as well. Managed to repair that since finishing my first year but fuck me was it a disaster.
Make a real effort to make friends with people from different halls and whatnot, it's very important.
|>>|| No. 4749
Dunno about dead inside but I fucking hate imperial and I know loads of other people like that too. Some people manage to enjoy it but most people don't have the time to do much fun stuff. Also many don't know how to socialise, eg loads of weird autistics who will never survive in the real world but they're in good company so lead pretty happy social lives it seems.
Yeah imperial's not the sort of place you want to go if you want t enjoy uni. You come in, do your work, hate every second of it, leave with a good uni name on your cv and hopefully find a really good job in finance like a greedy cunt.

On an unrelated note two thirds of all the guys I've ever met from bristol were cocky cunts, is that an accurate representation of the student body?
|>>|| No. 4753
Yeah that sounds awful. In my experience it's completely true that science subjects attract more people low on social skills than humanities (and obviously the unfavourable gender ratio). However, as one of our resident Camlads I was surprised to find a lot more well-adjusted and social students and a lot less posh cunts than I was expecting. There still are a few autists, Etonians and wannabe Etonians but they are largely outweighed by sound and normal people (well, the ones that don't become boaties...)
Maybe it's just that people who fail to grasp the absolute basics of socialising can't excel at interviews... (I have no idea if Imperial and others interview regularly or in as much depth)
|>>|| No. 4755
>>4751 What the fuck is that guy's name I swear he's one of the cocky cunts I met. Certainly sounds like him at least.
Actually that fake accent he has seems to be the one all cocky cunts I have met have so that doesn't narrow it down.

Starting second year at Reading

Sorry for slow reply lad, I did try but I was abroad.
I read Classical Studies (undergrad finalist).

Sorry for the equally slow reply, I forgot to check back.
Thats interesting, I'm a history student, did you learn Latin?
|>>|| No. 4828
No, I didn't do Latin or Greek in school, I gave Greek a try in my first year but didn't like the classes or the syllabus much. I'm not really interested in full time academia as a career so there's no need within the degree programme.

Fair enough, what do you plan on doing? If you don't mind me asking

I'm gonna be your STYC m8.
See you soon. See if you can work out who I am

It's good enough for engineering, which is what I'm doing.

Royal Holloway, more totti and gay folks than you can shake your stick at. Also a lovely campus and community vibe with lots of international folks, not everyone's cup of tea but for someone who only just got 5 c's at GCSE and failed all his A-Levels I'd say I've done alright.

Strathclyde, it's good enough for engineering, but I'm not doing that.
|>>|| No. 4902
My dad went to Strathclyde, though he did indeed to engineering.
Don't feel bad lad, it's got a good reputation. It's what you make of it.
Well done lad.

Can't be bothered reading through this whole thread, so apologies if its already been done, but what do yous think of Robert Gordon?

To quote an old Frankie Boyle joke:
"It used to be that I went to student union gigs and thought to myself 'Didn't this used to be a Polytechnic?'. Now I go to those gigs and think 'Didn't this used to be a petrol station?'"

There's something wrong with "Didn't this used to be", it just sounds incorrect.

I didn't even go to Loughborough but this video is pretty much why I didn't enjoy university.

Hahaha. Having low production values and being cheesy is part of the charm of any such thing that comes out of an SU, but this is just taking the piss. They clearly elected an entirely tone-deaf executive committee.

Also go to Notts but as a postgrad. Seems pretty good, facilities are decent for what I do. Still preferred Leeds though, campus was less spread out even if there were hills everywhere.

Nottingham is where I ended up.
I'm well happy with my decision, the city and the place I study at. The only little gripe I have is that I live in post-grad halls, over-priced as fuck and generally very clinical and cold (not in the physical sense).
|>>|| No. 5023
Not who you're asking the question to, but I'd kill myself if I lived on Sut Bon. There's fuck all there, and there's fuck all around it. It's positively hellish.

Loughborough. No women, all the guys are buff athletes. Shame none of them are gay.

I almost did my degree at Imperial. Good job I dropped out of A-level education and took up amphetamines instead.

I'm doing postgrad at Cumbria. There's a lad on my course who did undergrad at Roehampton and they said "Roehampton is one of the shittest unis in the country but it's still loads better than this shithole".

Finished my masters degree in Oxford couple of months ago. To be honest, in terms of education it really fell short of what I was expecting, same with the quality of the student body (should've realised something was off when they let me in). The city is nice though, and a nice place to be in as a student.
Can't provide a good view of other unis as I'm a foreignlad and don't know much. Except that I'm supposed to talk shit about Cambridge from now on.

I have a m8 at Oxfam currently doing a master's and from what I gather it's a really strange place.

I always find it odd when the world's top professors in various areas congregate in Cambridge, Oxford, wherever and people expect them to do quality teaching.
