Does the University (in terms of ranking and ‘prestige’, though both don’t seem that relate imo) matter in terms of STEM degrees? So long as you can graduate with at least 2:1, get relevant skills and work experience - you should be okay regardless of your uni choice?

I personally would say it matters, because courses at top tier universities are much harder compared to ones ranked lower, so getting a first at Oxbridge is a lot more impressive than at other universities that have less rigorous curriculums. However, if you are looking between Oxbridge and Imperial differences might not be as big if there are any at all. In any case, employers know which universities are harder to achieve good grades at, but they will also be looking at work experience and a lot of other factors so although it makes a difference in terms of the quality of education its not the be all end all.
