You don't. You don't tell people. You can't tell people. You just don't.

You think too much dude, why even in such a country like UK people still concern so much about this, or just you? It's just an university, I agree that a higher rank or top uni are good, but it doesn't say all about yourself.

With your situation if there's anyone ask, then answer quickly Oxford Brookes, no interruption, no stop, they will get it. And anyone use that as sth against you or laugh, mock, joke...don't give a **** about it. People look at your future, when you are out of 30 years old, not an uni.

Who cares what people think? As long as you achieved what you wanted by the end of it then that's all that matters and those that look down on you for it shouldn't matter to you.

It is even worse when you have to tell them where your uni is because they have never heard of it

It doesn't matter what uni you went to, honestly you should be proud for even getting into uni~

I think that's rather condescending. It IS difficult to get into uni, pursing further education is something to be proud of, I think.
