why don't you consider SIM-UOL?
imo murdoch and RMIT aren't exactly well-regarded even in australia.

cause it seems to be quite tough. I want to know from an employer's point of view. Does it have any difference?

i mean after all, we are all private students. nothing much to glorify. So i just wanted to see if it really affects the pay or does it have any preferential treatment to have either one of the degrees!

If there was a 'ranking' for private grads, SIM-UOL would probably take the top spot. The rest are quite roughshod. UOL at least maintains a certain standard in their grading system.

Why not UniSIM? At least that's being recognised by the Govt (and have tuition grants) and definitely will help. If you're looking at public as a prospective employer, yes it will make a difference.

If you're looking at private (SMEs), then no, hardly any difference. If you're looking at MNCs, then yes, there will be difference as well. It varies especially from the industry you're interested in.

Of course it'll make a difference in your estimated potential, and this could affect your progression in the bank (provided you can enter one). It's all about perceptions and first impressions.

Word of advice, most banking jobs are highly competitive and stressful (regardless FO, Middle or back end). If you're not prepared to even consider SIM-UOL simply because you think it's harder to study, you might reconsider your ambition to enter a bank.
