Yes, we get that. In principle a degree is a degree is a degree. And, in an ideal world, a 2.1 in Ceramics from the Plymouth College of Art validated by the University of Plymouth should carry as much weight as a 2.1 in Law from King's College Cambridge.
But we don't live in an ideal world. Employers, and let's be perfectly clear about this, degrees only matter to potential employers and Universities, self-evidently don't regard Ceramics as valuable as Law and don't regard Plymouth College of Art as valuable as King's College Cambridge. Of course, it could be prejudice and the two degrees actually mean that the candidate with the 2.1 in Ceramics from Plymouth is just as capable as the candidate with the 2.1 in Law from Cambridge. But, in general, employers aren't stupid.
You can be certain that if Price Waterhouse Coopers could be certain that a degree from SAE Institute Liverpool was worth the paper it was printed on, Music Tech would be the gateway to management consultancy.
