University of Leeds vs University of Reading for food science (technology)

Which uni is more desirable for employers? Leeds is part of the Russell group (15th in the UK), and I guess it is more internationally known. In contrast, Reading has a strong Food Science department and is quite good compared to other unis (28th in the UK). Also, I'm an undergrad student in Reading, so I guess it'll be easier to pursue my postgrad studies in Reading (?)

As for entry requirements, Reading will require me to get a 2:2 in a pure / applied science subject, whereas Leeds will require a 2:1 in a relevant subject. I’m studying biochemistry so I’m not sure if that counts as a relevant subject in Leeds.

And as you can tell, I'm looking forward to do my master's

Thank you in advance!

Reading is THE place to do Food Tech and there is a very strong network of Reading Food Tech alumnae in the UK. It doesn't have a reputation for anything else, but within the industry its about as strong as it gets.

Will my degree be more internationally respected if it comes from Leeds though?

Is your first job going to be overseas and not in the food industry then?
