More importantly, and why?

(This is stemming from a previous thread)

Ha ha ha! Impossible to say other than the best one is the one that ranks what is important to you as an applicant. In fact they're all bollocks

I would go by which are hardest to go into and secondly working backwards from the career they want - where do most people go who then work in that career.

National Student Survey, Guardian League Tables, DLHE.

Xenia read the OP - it's which university LEAGUE TABLE is the best, not which university is the best....

* National Student Survey, Guardian League Tables, DLHE.*

Is that your list of best to worst? Wow if so. Or merely a list of some example of league tables....

I think it’s useful to have a quick look at all of the main league tables as a starting point for deciding which units to look at (barring the rather random Guardian one). It’s interesting to look both at the overall ranking of the university and of the individual subjects. TBH I find looking at info from UNISTATS more useful than the league tables.

We moved to the UK shortly before our eldest was 16 and didn’t have a clue where to start looking so using the league tables in conjunction with all the other information out there such as school, friends, HE fairs, Uni websites etc was helpful.

People forget that with league tables there is often very little difference between the ‘scores’ of Universities.

WHICH did an article on the usefulness of U.k league tables.
