The UK has been a centre of learning for the past 1000 years and possesses many ancient and distinguished universities. Many former polytechnics and other colleges have been promoted to university status over the past 25 years , and there are now over 120 degree-awarding institutions in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The two most famous (and oldest) universities are '''Oxford''' and '''Cambridge''' (often referred to as Oxbridge by many Brits), but '''England''' also has several other world-class institutions, including several in '''London''' (notably '''Imperial College''', '''Cass Business School''', the '''London School of Economics''', '''University College London''' and '''King's College London''', all are part of London University). Outside of London in England the top universities are located in '''Birmingham''', '''Manchester''', '''Liverpool''', '''Leeds''', '''Sheffield''', '''Bristol''', '''York''', '''Nottingham''', '''LeedsBath''', '''Loughborough''', '''Newcastle''', '''SouthamptonWarwick''' and '''WarwickDurham'''.
