    You are so badly advised you could be a troll.
    Not only will any employers of note insist on knowing where your degree is from they'll insist on your transcript with every module score in each year.

    I've heard that for those reading Law your universities reputation is paramount
    Myth.

    But with a higher ranked uni your more likely to be equipped with all the skills/knowledge for that subject because you will have better lecturers, uni gets more funds etc. With a lower ranked uni you'll just have a lower chance to flourish as the uni will not provided a better platform than say the better ranked ones. Doesn't mean your bound to flop if you go to a low ranked uni.

    makes no difference, what makes the difference is the ability, eagerness and willingness to learn, and develop

    a strong willed, able, determined, motivated, enthusiastic student with a first from <insert crap uni here > will get a job over a lazy oxford / cambridge uni student who is lazy and un willing to learn and has no enthusiasm
    I doubt you'd even make it into Oxbridge if your not enthusiastic about the subject you're wishing to study. The admission process is pretty tough. :rolleyes:

    Let's be realistic, other things being equal a degree from Oxford will look better than a degree from Essex in the eyes of an employer, and might be the difference between getting an interview- that's what counts, right.

    What about Dundee or Heriot Wat? LOL, if you've even heard of them.
    Hey, I would rate both in the middle ground between good and average to be honest.
