    Hi there,
    I am currently studying "IT and Business" at university of Westminster. I would like to have your opinion if it is possible to advance to a Masters degree in Business at top 15 university such as UCL or Kings after studying at not a high ranked university such as Westminster? Of course in case a get first class or 2.1?

    Your replies would be much appreciated

    And would that make up for not going to a high ranked university at Bs level or would the employers still going to look at it as not a very promising educational background?

    I doubt that. On my MSc degree programme the vast majority of students were educated at pretty good institutions. Oftentimes, they hold degrees from some of the best universities in their home countries like the Bocconi or the National Autonomous University of Mexico. The two UK students went to Bristol and Durham, respectively.

    I am speaking from personal experience. If reputation and league table position came into it, I wouldn't be going to the UoL next year.

    PG admissions are not just about where you did your BA. Factors such as references, statement of purpose/research areas, academic results etc all play a part.

    My degree was at a peculiar university; on the one hand the colleges that make up the Uni are all old, on t'other it’s considered a new university. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and would recommend it to anyone. I applied for my MSc at UCL, and as I left the interview was told that so long as I got a 2:1 (standard for UCL) I was on the course. I think it really has majorly to do with how passionate about and interested in your discipline you are; professors are passionate about their subject so no news there really.

    I had this worry too that PG degree's would not accept the uni I want to go to (UEA) after studying Computing Science, if I was to do a PG in a top 10 university it seems very unlikely. But then I thought a lot of people have done it, so its possible.
