The Top Ten

1 (On Queen's, Belfast) One girl from my school went there and she kind of looked like a goat. Don’t include that, everyone will know who I mean, it was uncanny.
2 I once went to the University of East Anglia by accident and I think that’s how a lot of people get there.

Apologies to anyone here who went to East Anglia, but I am inclined to agree with this one. - PositronWildhawk

3 Durham is what Americans think going to uni in Britain is like. Including the weather.
4 “No one has sex at Imperial.” “I heard there’s a sofa at Imperial that everyone has sex on?” “Also the shower in the basement of the Physics building.” “Ewww. Okay, maybe they do have sex, just in grim places.”
5 Birmingham students would be in Hufflepuff.

But Edinburgh are the Slytherins! - PositronWildhawk

6 (On University of St. Andrew's, Scotland) It’s dark for 10 months of the year so they all have excellent eyesight. Like badgers.
7 (On University of St. Andrew's, Scotland) They have loads of sex because a) it is very cold there and b) there is nothing else to do.
8 All male York students wear flip flops. Approximately 65% of students at York are called Tom.
9 (On University of York) When they get drunk they always try and climb trees.
10 (On University of Oxford) It’s basically Hogwarts for grownups who can’t do magic.

My friend would agree with this. Now I think of it, she probably was the one who said it!
