    I would say Durham but I'm happy to be stood corrected

    Little to no difference in terms of "reputation". Bristol's proximity to London makes it easier to get to interviews in London. And there are considerably more jobs in Bristol than Durham. But no employer is going to prefer one uni over the other.

    They are both equal. The university you got doesn't really matter, especially when it's between two very similarly ranked universities. There is no job you can get into with one that you can't get into with the other. Employers mainly look for a 2:1, good extracurriculars that show leadership, teamwork and communication skills and some work experience. The university is just one part of the recruitment and both Bristol and Durham have the same kind of reputation with employers "not Oxbridge but still pretty good"

    They're neck-and-neck, but I personally prefer Bristol primarily due to its location.
