Hi, I applied to York St John and got an unconditional offer, but many are saying to go to a university with a "higher" reputation. I really liked the university and get to study the course I really want to do, but would that mean it would make my degree less desirable?
Thank you

Depends on your A-level grades and what degree it is. But if you really like the university and course I guess go for it as at the end of the day you're going to be studying there for 3 years and you don't want to hate the course/university.

Thanks for the reply! It's for a degree in English and History which is what I want to do, whereas the higher university I applied for offered English and Philosophy. I liked both universities equally, but I did initially want a degree in English and History. Does it matter what university you get a degree from?

Wow ok that is quite a big jump, I would consider the University of Nottingham. However, if you really want to do the course at York St John then go for it. It depends what you want to do in the future, although employers generally don't care about the university you went to in this case they might. If you want to move onto further study/teaching afterwards then York St John is fine as your transcript would be more important for further study. If you intend to go into employment in a graduate scheme role after graduation I would supplement your CV with work experience.
