This country has a rich and distinctive set of universities. And while most are struggling through accommodation shortages, staff strikes and pest problems, it’s still true the UK’s institutions do have some cool buildings.

When you walk up to them, seeing them towering over you, they’re impressive and recognisable. But what if you were towering over the buildings? What if you were Google Earth? Would you recognise the UK’s unis then?

That’s the premise of this quiz. It’s very hard, but you should probably manage the Oxford and Cambridge ones.
