Finding a University

Why does finding a University have to be so hard?  With less than 200 to choose from in the UK and all that good data out there, surely it should be easy.

1) choose a subject area and course type

2) filter by the grades you are likely to get or other entry criteria

3) rank by what’s important to you (campus vs city, nightlife, culture, cost of living/studying, student satisfaction, employability, research …)

4) overlay with geography … and you’re done!

But it this what you get at sites like the Times online map or even a “value add” site like WhatUni, or heaven forbid UCAS!

Another golden mash-up opportunity!
