    I have an offer to study postgrad in chemical engineering from Imperial, Manchester, Cranfield and Sheffield. What I wanted to know is whether university rankings play an important role in securing a good job after graduation. How much value do employers assign to the name of the university?

    Very little in the UK, like someone just mentioned.
    Frankly, as long as you come from a pool of top schools top in that area, ranking means little- as long as your grades are excellent, that is! Your choice of schools are excellent, I must say.

    Cheers!
