I am looking at doing a finance related masters degree. I study at a University ranked in the 40s and they offer masters scholarships which significantly reduces the fees.
I was wondering how beneficial in terms of employment would studying at a top university in London be? And whether it would be worth the extra fees. I would also live at home at this time and commute but would need a hefty train season ticket.
Additionally I intend to leave the UK once I graduate and have spent some time in Canada and USA and the city I study at was relatively unheard unless they followed football.

If you're going to stay in the UK then rankings don't really matter unless you're somewhere terrible. If you're going abroad work out what the view is of rankings and how much they affect employability. Generally I think course content and experience matter more than where you studied though.
