    Why is it employer's or people seemed more impressed with the university you go to (Russell uni) rather then the degree you get.

    For example if someone who goes to Manchester uni does a course on engineering a gets a 2:1 degree but then someone who goes to a non Russell group uni gets a first degree in the same course. Since employers don't look at the degree itself but rather the place you studied. Isn't this is discouraging work at uni and is this how students should be judge?; i.e the university rather then the degree or is this me being really misunderstood and confused?

    degrees are not the same at every uni so i think employers may see it as the better the uni, the better the degree
