For post-grads, how often does being russell group or redbrick help you with employment, connections etc. I’m currently at a mid-tier uni and I’m doing well, I chose it because I was too late to apply for my cities redbrick. I’m thinking about transferring for second year, to that redbrick. Is this not really too big of a deal, I value teaching calibre but I’d mostly be transferring for the post-grad prospects, is this a good idea? Thanks!

What sort of employment are you interested in?
Have you spoken to any potential employers about how they recruit staff?

It is a slight advantage for postgraduate applications, but nothing more. Much more important is the grade you achieve, and the skills and knowledge you bring from your course. Academic prestige isn't as important within academia, so long as you have excelled where ever you have been.
