Does it make more sense to choose a uni which is a russell group and has a generally high rating, or choose a uni with the highest rating for your specific course?

It makes sense to go to the university with the course that most interests you. As an extension of this though the quality of the course is more important but you should consider more factors when making your choice than rankings.

'Ratings' should be based on Employment rate, which they're not, because that's the main thing that matters in the end.
But choosing a subject you're interested in is definitely more important then choosing one because you want the money at the end, or think it's prestigious, even though you're not interested in the actual subject, etc.

You'll hear a lot of opinions, such as that you should go for the best university for your course, but a high ranking university on your CV still is a big bonus in the job market, whatever course you happened to take, regardless of whether that is actually justified or not.
