    Bath...
    popular choice for people who didn't quite make it into Russell Group unis.
    Maybe for some courses, but for things like engineering it is a popular choice for people who didn't quite make it into Oxbridge and Imperial, way above say Liverpool.

    Most underrated is almost definitely the Open University. It's often dismissed by people who know nothing about it but it's a legit university with outstanding student satisfaction ratings and is very highly regarded by employers. It's an institution to be proud of, for sure.
