    Of course you'll need to work harder. Is this not obvious?

    Yes it has been answered.
    The courses are different, so how could you possibly be tested on the same stuff?
    And better universities will be harder (in general). That's why the degree is more respected and hence why they're seen as a better uni.

    For courses like Medicine and Dentistry, no as even though medicing degrees at places like Oxbridge, UoL, Brum etc, will be better than lower ranked, the courses at all unis must be approved by the GMC, so inreality it doesnt matter, not that TVU does medicene anyway. Basically for all others, just no, basic content may be similar, but at TVU it wouldnt be as wide ranging and as in depth as at better unis, hence why its not the same standard as a uni.

    Remember, one major thing that differentiated a uni and a poly was that the uni set its own course, grades etc, and the poly taught a course from a central exam board. Now theyre all uni, they set their own courses, and well, yeah. For places like TVU, getting a degree when it was a poly is more respected than it is to get a degree from there now.
