    I agree to an extent - three teachers in my school went to Cambridge and are now just school teachers, and this is the only job they've had despite doing respectable degrees :/
    Whenever those in my school got offers from Cambridge a maaasive deal was made out of it from the school&the student's like they'd won the lottery or something - this even being before they'd confirmed their place
    Cambridge has produced some great people in the past though
    Maybe they just wanted to be teachers? It seems like a great job to me, even if you don't get a huge salary.

    It really depends on your state. Southern/Central ones the racism/segregation is prevalent but on the West and East coasts, everyone's mixing and mingling!

    One of my English lecturers at college read English at Oxford (can't remember which college), and he was one of the best and knowledgable teachers I'd ever had. Just because not every Oxbridge graduate goes off and makes millions in the city doesn't mean that the kind of education afforded there isn't special.

    I agree. I wish people would stop obsessing about Oxbridge/RG as a "meal ticket" in the "world of work", it is simply not true! University is about providing opportunity for academic and personal growth. I am not a "bitter reject" by the way but have chosen my uni based upon lots of research and logic. Employers really don't care where you study, they are more interested in the qualities and skills the individual has developed. BTW there is nothing wrong with being a teacher as someone posted earlier, we all need them.

    Fair point.

    I guess 'Russell Group' University still carries some weight.

    Bath probably is equal to somewhere like Leeds Or Sheffield in most subjects. Having said that I doubt anyone would pick Bath over an RG for English.

    But it's among the best in the country for Engineering and Maths I think.

    RG is largely overrated anyway tbh.



    You can't study English at Bath.
