    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me?

    Basically I wanted to know whether the Uni that you gained your degree at, whether it effects the chances of one getting into an MA course?

    That doesn't make too much sense I think so, does University prestige matter when applying to do an MA degree? Is it a huge factor in determining whether you are offered a place?

    For example getting a 2.1 from a 50 ranked uni or getting a 2.1 from a top ten uni?

    I am currently studying at Manchester Metropolitan, which is ranked 90th by the Times Good University Guide 2010 (71st by subject), and I have been offered a place at Bristol, Edinburgh, Lancaster, Sheffield and York; no, I do not think it makes any difference.
