    Suppose I wanted to become an Astrophysicist. Would employers equally care in which university I took by Bsc, Ms and Phd or they would care mostly where I got my Phd from? I am asking because Astrophysicist Brian Cox has a Msc from Huddersfield university and a Phd in Manchester university.

    In most sectors employers don't care what any of the university names are, they just want the best person for the job- someone who demonstrates evidence of the skills they are looking for and has real world experience outside of university.

    Hi, I am an Astrophysicist :-)

    When hiring for astro research positions, employers essentially only care about what your research topic/focus/skills you have/gained from your PhD, your research publications, and from those things whether they believe you are are the best fit and will an asset for the project. Everything else is irrelevant

    If you do want to become an astrophysicist, I strongly recommend doing an undergraduate masters instead of BSc+MSc - as student finance will not fund the MSc but will fund the undergraduate masters.
