University Ranking Watch has published a distinctive table: the universities which have won the most University Challenge series. Leaving aside the detail that Oxford and Cambridge enjoy the special privilege of multiple entries, via the Colleges, it’s an interesting list:

1. Oxford – 39 points

2. Cambridge – 21

3. Manchester – 8

4=. Imperial College London – 5

4=. Open University  – 5

6=. Durham – 4

6=. Sussex – 4

8=. St. Andrews – 3

8=. Birkbeck, University of London – 3

10=. Bradford – 2

10=. Dundee – 2

10=. Keele – 2

10=. Leicester – 2

10=. Belfast – 2

10=. Warwick – 2

(Note that it’s two points for a win and one for being runner up.)
One day, the University of Nottingham will be there I hope.
