Hey all there:

I will straight to the point. I got an offer from Imperial for its MS in investment & wealth management. I am a Canadian citizen, so I consider studying in UK would be an enriching experience. However, after some search, I have come to a realization that it would be hard, if not impossible, for an International student to work in London upon graduation, assuming that he or she gets a degree from Imperial? Given the last year designation data for the graduates, about 50% of the students went to work in Asia, and about 30% stay in Europe. Would that mean I would have a better chance to land a job in Asia Pacific instead of in London? Imperial, unfortunately, does not carry much weight in Canada given the closeness of the Canadian banking system; and it carries even lesser weight in the state. I hold a bachelor degree from a Canadian university.

Any input is appreciated.

Have a look on the UK immigration website at the requirements for obtaining a work visa from a non-EU country. I believe it hinges on finding a company that is willing to sponsor the visa, which I wouldn't have thought would be too hard in the finance industry.
