A report from Which? rated Universities based on five extra-curricular activities - creative arts, politics, student union activities and nightlife - and quizzed 16,000 undergraduates on how their schools were doing.

Oxford and Cambridge did will as breeding grounds for wannabe politicians and artists, but came in low on the list of sporty Universities.

Unsurprisingly, Loughborough - known for its sports facilities - was considered among the best sporty universities, alongside institutions such as Durham, Bath and Birmingham.
