Children in areas affected by armed conflict sometimes play up to journalists' cameras. They can be happy to pose, grin and lark about, welcoming the distraction from danger and boredom.

ONE: University guide 2013: University of Cambridge | Education | guardian.co.uk, With a history stretching back 800 years (making it the second oldest university in Britain), a solid-gold academic reputation, a wealth of lore and tradition, and some truly glorious architecture, Cambridge has plenty of justification for its boast of being one of the best universities in the world. It's also slightly tainted by the accusation that only posh types need apply. #education #cambridgeprofile #guide

TWO: University of #Oxford | #Education, here's no doubt that Oxford's history – all 900 years of it – is very present. You'll probably live in at least one beautiful, centuries-old building, sit at the same desk as your favourite prime minister or Nobel prize-winner, or take part in one of the ridiculous traditions that have been ridiculous since the 17th century. But Oxford is also a modern university: at, or near, the top of national and global rankings, year after year.

FIVE: #education| The first fact you should know about #Warwick is that it's not in Warwick. It actually lies about three miles outside the centre of Coventry and on the border of Warwickshire. Warwick itself does have its own castle, though, so you might like to go there for a day trip. Coventry has all the other mod cons you require, though the modern (well, modern in the 1960s) main campus is charming and very well equipped. Consistently rated among the best universities in the country.
