I'm a British citizen, but since I've been living abroad for over three years, I'll have to pay the sky high overseas tuition fees. I attend an international school where I live and so I've been exposed to university visits from just about every country I'd be interested in studying in. Canada is definitely a pragmatic option; namely the University of Toronto. It's a world class university which consistently performs well on international university tables. In Canada, tuition fees are much lower, and I just feel like it is a much more student friendly country. Since I'm British, if I do end up studying in Canada, I'll have to obtain a student visa which expires practically as soon as I graduate. I'd prefer to work and live in England once I've obtained a degree. I'm still going to apply to English universities; UCL is my first choice. However, I was just wondering; would a Canadian degree, specifically from a prestigious university like UofT help me land a job or are my chances essentially nil? Or at the very least permit my entry into postgrad programmes that would help me find employment in the UK?

It might depend what work you want to go into, but I think for the most part it won't matter if you have a Canadian degree.

Its unlikely to be an issue in any sector if its a respected uni + course.

In engineering (given this is the engineering forum)? If your Toronto engineering degree is suitably accredited then yes you will be fine.

Yeah you'll be fine with a Canadian degree, for engineering you might want to do a Masters in the UK though to make sure your route to chartership is up to scratch however that's not something you have to do immediately after graduation.

As for UK universities, costs are going to be a lot higher at anywhere in London, especially UCL, and UCL doesn't have the best reputation within the UK for being able to run engineering courses.
