Given that you apply to a BPS accredited course, does it really matter where you do it? Also does your choice of uni have any impact on your chances of getting an offer to a doctorate degree?

No and no. Your transcript, experience and refs are key.

Not really.

Bear in mind also that some 'full time' one year conversion courses are very light contact hours. Means you can work full time around that.

I actually directly know of more people to get on the doctorate from a low ranking uni conversion course than the 'traditional' route.
