for Master's in Luxury Brand Management.
I am interested to know that which University would be the preferable choice depending upon the reputation, career oppurtinities and probability of getting part time jobs.

Southampton is the better reputed university overall, by some margin. Goldsmiths has a reputation for arts subjects. You should look at the academic profiles of people working in roles you aspire to and see where they have studied, though I suspect you will find very few who have taken an academic route. Career opportunities will depend on you, this isn't an area where there are likely to be 'target' universities. Everywhere will have the opportunity for part-time jobs, the probability depends on you.

To map out potential career paths, start by researching the academic backgrounds and profiles of professionals in your desired field. It's important to note that academic careers are pursued by only a few of them. In this industry, there are no defined "target" colleges, so your employment prospects will largely depend on your own drive and initiative. Part-time work options are consistently available, but securing them successfully will require proactive efforts. Southampton University is widely recognized, whereas Goldsmiths is renowned for its strong reputation in art programs.

Hi Panditra,
Congratulations on your offers, that’s great!
I would advise you to look at rankings in league tables if that’s something that’s important to you, but also consider factors such as location, accommodation, cost of living, and the specifics of each course in regards to what interests you most. I would say doing modules you enjoy which you can thrive in will give you the best experience and opportunities. Part time jobs are available in most cities for students, as well as university jobs like student ambassador roles which are flexible around your studies and good experience.
Good luck with your choice!
