lol it wont be a 'waste'- but why are you doing marketing? Doing a business course would cover marketing and a marketing course is not the most reputable course in the UK

I think going for a BCom in Management is a wiser idea and they you can go for a MSc/MA in Marketing, or if you are looking for complete specialisation, yes there is no harm in studying marketing as long as you make a very good result...
Regarding the uni's-- I have my own formula for finding the reputation of uni's, you can apply the same one--- look at the alumni section on the website of intended uni and find out how many people are in good marketing / management (HRM specially) jobs. Remember these people will make your fate while you apply for a post.

How about Hull as a business school? I know as a place its a crap but how about its reputation among employers? What abt Portsmouth? Actually both of these schools are cheaper for studying Marketing .....
