    Hi All,

    I currently go to University of West London Ranking 106 working in Recruitment I know how important it can be to get a top job by going to a Top University so I am thinking of going to a Top 10 University in London/South East i.e LSE, Imperial College of London, or Surrey.

    I do a part-time BA (Hons) in Business Management which I am predicted to Graduate with a 73% (First) being a part-time course they are more lenient I believe with marking as we work 50 hours a week as well as doing the same course as full-time students.

    My Question is going from a low ranking university to a Top 10 University is the grading much harsher? I am thinking of doing my MsC or MBA and I don't want to come out with a 2:2 after spending £24k+.

    I do work my arse off I often work 8am-6pm then go uni 6pm-11pm everyday including Saturdays and have previously ran my own small companies for I am quite good at business.

    Anyone gone from a not so "good" university to a Top 10? Or can advise me at all?
