Now, of course I can’t give any examples here, or I’ll risk ruining the quiz. But rest assured, there are host of UK unis which have names that will put a tiny smirk on your face.

In fact, some of them even sound made up. But can you tell which ones are made up? Take this quiz and test your credentials.
