In a previous post I referred to Nick Gibb’s alleged quote, reported in the Guardian.  He is reported as saying:

“I would rather have a physics graduate from Oxbridge without a PGCE teaching in a school than a physics graduate from one of the rubbish universities with a PGCE.”

Here is a list from UCAS of Higher Education Institutions which are running physics undergraduate programmes starting later this year.

The Universities listed on this page are:

  • Aberystwyth University
  • University of Bath
  • The University of Birmingham
  • University of Bristol
  • Cardiff University
  • University of Central Lancashire
  • Coventry University
  • University of Dundee
  • Durham University
  • University of East Anglia
  • The University of Edinburgh
  • University of Exeter

Which of them are ‘rubbish’?


One thought on “Physics degrees from ‘rubbish’ Universities

  1. Nick Glibb, in typical Tory fasion, has an elitist attitude that should have been consigned to the history books. To have someone like him as school minister is an absolute joke.
