University of Michigan

University of Michigan

Brits who are really looking to get away from the Brideshead Revisited Oxbridge experience, and who believe that East Coast America is simply not far enough, would do well to consider the University of Michigan.

Washington University (St. Louis, Missouri)

There’s only one university currently ranked by US News and World Report in the top 15 which is not a household name, and it’s Washington University in St. Louis.
