    Finally everyone is coming to the party bloody hell. Sorry to sound snobbish I only want the best for OP. Also employers trend shows the prefer the universities we are taking about. I can link you to a piece which has data and which 25 universities are targeted the most and Southampton is the only one out of those 5 who make the list.
    Research means jack when employers are actively stating they don't care. I spoke to a senior member of staff at Leeds General Infirmary who actively stated that she even found those with 2:1 and 2:2 more employable than those with First's since they tended to lack any skills other than academia which is the issue a lot of recruiters have with RG universities. They gear you to research and little else beyond that.
