    I'm really confused about this and I'm hoping someone could shade some light into my current situation.

    I'm doing BSc Games Development at a really poor ranked university(programming course). Even though I will finish my degree with a first, i want to move away from the 'gaming' side and seek a career in software engineering/it consultant/project manager. I believe that I have no chance with my current degree (would i be right to assume this?).

    Now to 'fix' the fact that my university is pathetic and that my course is worthless, I'm thinking of doing a Masters Degree in Computer Science or System Software Engineering at either imperial or ucl. Would masters overshadow my BSc? Would having a Masters in SE or CS make me a potential candidate for a broader range of jobs?

    Congrats on the first! I'm not an expert here but it may be difficult to get onto a masters at imperial/ucl as computer science is highly quantitative. Best to email any unis you are interested in who'll be able to shed light on your situation.

    Fair enough- if that's what you want to know then yes it is a smart career move. Your undergraduate degree would seem quite 'mickey mouse' to employers so if you can get a masters in a respected subject like computer sci, then that would to an extent override your undergrad.
