All are excellent universities, however, living in Australia, I went to LaTrobe University. At the time it offered an excellent Science degree - I have a major in Chemistry and a sub major in Microbiology. Currently my son is at the University of Melbourne doing a double degree in Law and Science. It's supposed to be the top university in Victoria for Law. It certainly has the name and prestige.

Don't know if you're still interested, but... Oxford and Harvard/Berkeley have hugely different systems, for one thing. American universities tend to have a lot more freedom - you choose which classes to take, and can take lots of classes outside of your main field. At Oxford, its a bit more restricted. You choose what your focus is at the start, and then only take classes for that field - though can attend other lectures and seminars, on other subjects, its very difficult to find the time to do so! There's a lot more individual focus at Oxford - you have meetings with your 'tutor' normally every week, were it may be just you and the tutor, or a couple other people and the tutor, discussing your topics and papers. So have to be prepared and do a lot of independent work! When I went to university in the States, on the other hand, the classes are quite large and so it was easy to not be noticed if you hadn't done the work.. Not that that's a good thing, of course! Over all, I would research each school a lot, through their websites and from former students. Also, try to contact the departments that you are interested in at each school and see what information they can offer you. Oxford has been a lot of fun, for me, but its definitely not for everyone. I know people who end up hating it and feeling terribly out of place. Same with the others, of course, so do lots of research and when you get to school, try to make good friends who will support you!

I do not personally know anything about any of these Universities. However, the best one for a person is the university that provides the subjects and degree that will enable you to get a good job once you have completed your course. The other thing to take into consideration is the cost of each particular University for the course that you want to do. There is no point in starting at a particular University based on its status and then not be able to complete the course due to lack of funds.

Harvard and Berkeley both r new universities for me. I never heard their names before today. I live in Pakistan and read from the one of the best schools of my city. We were taught syllabus of Oxford University there and it was good. I got good marks in that syllabus. The syllabus of Oxford is really nice and provide us good informations.

i dont know because i never went neat these universities or know anyone from here who graduated from there. but i think they have their own center of excellence so i guess it depends on what degree i would take.
