Although Leicester is good for law, I might not necessarily go into the legal field however i don’t know if it will hold me back from getting jobs in other fields bcs it doesn’t have a high rank overall.

Most employers don’t care. They want to know you are a capable person, and 9/10 times which uni you went to wouldn’t affect that. You are more likely to be judged on the classification of your degree (First, Second, Third) or any examples / portfolio of work you can show. They will also be interested in whether you fit on a personal level, as well as if you have any previous experience.

The only time the name of your uni makes a difference is if you went to a place like Oxford or Cambridge - but even then, it is becoming increasingly clearer to employers than the prestige of a school does not necessarily result in the ideal candidate. I attend a university that has a certain historical element to it that many seem to associate with it being “good”, but if anything I have found it more difficult to find employment as our graduates have a reputation for not being the best qualified.
