UK Research Assessment Exercise

When I was a student the UK academic pecking order seemed to be Oxbridge followed by the other collegiate universities (Bristol, Durham) together with Imperial and the northern red-bricks (Manchester, Leeds etc), and, lastly, the 60s concrete jungle universities.

In the 2008 UK academic research assessment exercise, one sees that some of the 60s universities have come a long way. Congratulations Essex, Warwick and York!
