Yes but everyone knows you need an 80% from ARU to get into IB.

Well, oddly, it is ARU making that argument implicitly. Which I think is incredibly odd for them to make as it can only lead to a Pyrrhic victory. Yes but everyone knows you need an 80% from ARU to get into IB.
My first point was that the uni blagged about the quality of the course. That is on them. Currently on their site
they say "ARU is one of the top universities for quality of teaching. Teaching Excellence Framework silver award 2017.
" Now that's a straight misrep. My second point is that this person's lack of career success does not directly stem from this lie or the uni, but her attitude to her work and her lack of proper effort to enter her desired industry. Third point, slightly linked, is that she would have more punch with apps if she had a higher first and some awards in addition to
other essential characteristics such as a positive attitude to work (see my second point).
Is there anywhere that the above has been stated? Are potential students who dream of progressing to IB aware that they would need 80%?
I agree that the university blagging about the course is on them, but i think they should be called out or punished for false marketing. If it is in other industries, falsely marketed products/services will receive a serious punishment from the regulators.
In addition, every uni seems to be a top uni at something, which i agree with you.
To your second point, i dont think we fully know the girls full story. Yes, she probably should have attempted to seek relevant employment during uni like internships. However, we dont know whether she tried and the clout of her uni was just not good enough.
To your third point, you are still speculating. A fully padded CV probably would not have not been enough. The issue is that this is where she is now and her degree does not seem to be worth the paper it is written on, hence she wants her money back.
