    Do u guys think employers put uni reputation first or experience first?
    I'm an international student, just finished my BSc, I'm thinking to go to a less reputation uni for my master because the fee of good uni is too much. But I'm worried it is difficult to get a job after master.

    A very small number of employers may consider a university's reputation important, these are primarily top law and finance firms. But for the overwhelming majority of other employers the reputation will make absolutely no difference.

    Can't comment on your country, but I'd agree with Duncan. Very few employers in the UK will know or care about a uni's reputation. Oxford, Cambridge, LSE and UCL might stick out on a CV but apart from that there's little significance just in a uni's name.*

    Experience every single time. Experience is what gets you the job, not the name of your uni
