Bantshire was founded in 1969 by [name redacted due to ongoing court proceedings]. It was the 25th member of the Russell Group, until it was expelled in 1970 for being a bit shit. However, it has turned itself right-the-fuck around and now ranks No.1 for Canteen Facilities in the CEF 2020, and brings joy to thousands of punters via its Twitter website. Bantshire’s current Vice-Chancellor is Vince Chancelier (He/VC).

The Dud University Guide

Like other university guides, The Dud University Guide is designed without students in mind.


We have most of our ideas in the work loos. It's our quiet place. Usually, ideas are based on a real life situation that are too unbelievable for our real-life university account.


The Vice-Chancellor has requested that we go viral. We've knocked together a few doctored YouTube screenshots to keep him happy.
