Hi,

Basically, for my chosen career route, I need to have a postgrad degree. Therefore, does it matter where I do my undergraduate studies?

Not necessarily as long as the classification is good.

E.g. My philosophy teacher went from Greenwich to UCL o.O

So do universities care as to where you did your Bachelors?

There's a limit to how much universities care about where you did your undergrad, but employers still might. All other things being equal, you'll never lose out from going to a better uni though.

What degree subject / career path do you intend to follow? It can matter in some subjects more than others.

I hope on becoming a lecturer in either history/politics or working in the UN/Foreign Office.
