I study biochemistry at a top ranking non-russell group university and my degree is being discontinued and rebranded under a different name but the degree isn't accredited and there is no hope that it will get accredited before I graduate. A transfer to a different university after my placement year was suggested by a lecturer whom I asked for advice and it's just added another layer of stress. I wanted to ask whether any of you guys know if there will be any consequences to this in terms of my employability. Is switching to a different university worth the stress especially because most other Russell unis won't allow a transfer from a non-Russell uni, let alone in year 3. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Which jobs do you think require accreditation for biochem graduates?

I think we were expecting the royal society of biology to accredit the degree and I'm not sure but would it not be strange if an employer goes on the uni website and my degree isn't mentioned there at all?

You're over-estimating employers interest in job applicants.

They don't go looking on university websites to find out what you studied - your degree certificate, transcript and HEAR tell them that information along with your references.
