The University Hay Fever Rankings

Welcome to our latest ranki.... ACHOO! Excuse me. Welcome to our latest rankings, the ACHOOOOO! Sorry. The University Hay Fever Rankings! Ah.. ah.. oh, I thought I was about to sneeze th... ACHOOOO!

The rankings are based on universities’ main postcodes only. Data from the Kleenex pollen forecast for Tuesday 15th June, when the weather forcast for the UK was mostly the same (it was sunny, yeah?). All data collected at the same time on the evening of Sunday 13th June (I missed the football for this, cheers - VC).

The Kleenex data is from three sources: Pollen traps across the UK, local weather on the day, and the different types of trees, weeds, and grass in the area.

The table is ordered so universities with the highest pollon levels are at the top. This is because more pollon = happy bees. AhAhahHahHCHOOOOOOOOOOeeee!!!

I’m not a data expert. Ranking is for novelty purposes only, so don't apply to Salford based on it. Stop complaining. ACHOOOO! Yes, The Open University should be No.1 because all of their students could, in theory, study in oxygen chambers.
