Which part of "FCH from Monash" and "boutique litigation firm that's an Asian Legal Business finalist/other awards in Benchmark Litigation/Chambers/Straits Times Survey" is humble bragging?

FCH from an Aussie uni is nothing spectacular. And any law firm that needs to cite its "Straits Times Survey" award is obviously not a top firm. That's like me padding my CV with "secondary school best class monitor award".

If you think those are bragworthy achievements...

I think he meant to state it factually for the benefit of other OP who would like to know career prospects for AU grads.

No harm, no foul.

Said person is very humble irl. Does not brag. So take it in context please, thanks.

It is a shame that there is a strong bias against AU grads in the SG market. We are looking at Uni Melb and USYD because of their comparable top rankings against NUS over the years.

I see that many are commenting on the point that I made about ROI. Just to clarify, as a lender, my role is to know if the money can be made worthwhile. I think many parents have also gone through this phase of evaluation. Of course, for the student (nephew in my case), the emphasis is on the passion etc. But as a young adult, it is only fair that he learns to appreciate the money and not see it as a given just because there is a potential for higher earnings or a step towards a career with a labelled prestige.

Is there also a bias against people from delisted schools? Since the bias against AU graduates are there, perhaps I would advise him to seek out other degrees or to speak with people who were from AU or delisted schools on how they are surviving in the industry if he insists on going down this path.

Yes, his interest is in international relations. But within the family, we are strongly opposing against these courses. Law is the most practical of all courses that is not STEM or commerce.
Short answer - yes. There is a bias.

No comment on whether the bias is justified or unjustified to avoid a debate on its merits. I only speak from what I have observed.

Yes.

The Big 4 does take in people from those firms.

Who cares what colonised sinkie plebs think, they can go work in their lowballing sinkie firms continue earning their peanuts. Havent you heard that the poor people from smalltowns in USA are the most racist, small minded, prejudiced and backward?
