Define 'a good one'?

It's very sub-par compared directly to Russell Group universities, but what subject are you going to apply for?

do employers look negatively upon students whom have studied there?
Is the teaching standard good?

Politics/Economics related or law!

Oxford Brookes is a university in it's own right, not a college.

Pro: You can tell people you went to Oxford
Con: You didn't actually

It's certainly not as good as Russell group universities, but if you are unsure of how many offers you will get there's no harm in putting it down to guarantee having two offers to accept.

Not really for Law or Politics - you'll only want to put it there as a backup in case the others reject you
