Cass vs CBS for master's - Brexit question included

Hey everyone!

Long time lurker here but first time posting, this forum has been a huge help to me in the past and now I have an important decision to make which I've gone back and forth on so I'm hoping someone has some decent advice.

Been accepted on the Msc Corporate Finance programme at Cass Business School and the Msc Accounting, Strategy and Control programme at Copenhagen Business School.

One of the things that's really confusing to me is how Brexit would affect my chances of attaining a work permit in the UK if I choose to study at CBS. I'm an EU student which means I get pre-settled status if I move to the UK by the end of this year, choosing CBS I would need a work permit for London employment. Will this have any major effect on recruiting for London based roles out of CBS?

There are obviously many more things to take into consideration but I would love to get some feedback on here.

IRRection, what's your opinion? Comment below:

sounds like you've kind of answered it yourself tbh. none of us in the uk really know how work visas will work out with brexit, so if you want to hedge your bets with brexit, might be best to pre-settle in the uk.

plus, cass business school has a pretty solid reputation in london. i have european friends who went cass -> ib.

can't speak for cbs - literally hadn't heard of it before.
