I've got admission into the Msc. Remote Sensing program at UCL for studies beginning September 2016. The only thing that seems daunting is the cost of the entire program, me being an international student. I already have a Master's and Bachelor's in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) from the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), USA. However, I wanted to do a second Master's, in a more specialized field such as Remote Sensing, and this time from a top-rank university recognized across the world (UCL). In the long-term, I would also prefer to work in London/UK/Europe after my degree. UTD, although an oustanding school in its own right, is nowhere close to the ranking that UCL is at, and employers outside the USA probably haven't even heard about it.
Q) Is it worth spending $40,000-$45,000 to complete a 1-year UCL degree in a more specialized field (which I haven't studied yet) to have the UCL name on your academic record? I have read in many places online that a UCL degree is valued highly, but just wanted to get feedback from anyone whether this really makes a difference. There are barely any scholarships that UCL offers for US citizens. However, this time, I do want a top-rank university degree.
Thanks for your help!
