k.

Bath, Lancaster, Loughborough are really good universities apparently and are non Russell group.

The question is whether going to university is even worth it if you think it gives you better job opportunities.

Russel group universities aren't the only option, a degree is a degree and you will find work afterwards regardless of where you get it.

It’s a bit ridiculous to call Imperial ‘an alternative’ to Oxbridge imo :charm:

You've got St Andrews, Lancaster, Surrey, Sussex and Royal Holloway which rank fairly high according to the Complete University Guide- plus the unis everyone else mentioned.

Erm yeah, just because a university has a high research output doesn't mean that anything below it is some crap which passes out second hand degrees.
