    I would put both on mine.

    My CV has my three degrees on it (none are Oxbridge).

    Of course, however they may wish to know the route you have taken to get to your current position at degree level.

    I would still mention it as an undergraduate degree is an achievement in itself. Where did you study it?

    I would put it on after graduating but likely remove it later down the road.

    Perhaps they'd like to know what you'd studied previously. No need to go into detail, but it's still an achievement worth noting.

    There is no real space-saving if you omit the first degree. The CV would look like this:

    Relevant education BSc (Hons) in Computer Science (2:1, Warwick), MSc Robotics (Oxford)

    One line, two degrees.

    You don't necessarily need an UG degree to do a PG one.

    There's no rational reason not to list an UG degree if you have one. It won't save any space.

    Would you not need to go into detail with the masters and UG degree about what modules one studied which would be taking up a fair bit of room on the CV

    I was just thinking if you were to go into detial about masters and UG degree it may take up a fair bit of room and many on TSR suggest the UG degree is irevelant once one has gained a masters
