    My gut says its far less significant than your degree.

    P.S. I've popped your thread into this sub-forum so you'll hopefully get the replies you're after.

    I don't really know. Given you spend most of your time in school rather than university (I only had about 6 weeks worth of contact time in total), I would suggest that the schools you train at would give you more prestige than the university that arranged your placements.

    No, of course it does not matter - if it's only the QTS you're after.
    I would still look at the rankings, just to be sure, as some Universities have good partnerships with schools that can end up being your first job!

    Also different Universities run the course differently. The assignments are going to be different (some make you do 3, some make you do 2) so you might want to keep that in mind when looking for a training provider.
