As a uk uni law student, is it worth to get UK TC? UK's salary at MC firms is almost equivalent to SG firms post tax and mortgage, so not sure why UK TC is seen as more attractive?

Because salaries are generally pegged to current earnings and not overall package after Tax.

A simple example:
Even if you take-home 6k either way, if you apply to another firm with your SG pay of say 7k, your next firm may only decide to bump you to 8k (or keep you at 7k), and international firms may decide to lowball you. If you are taking home 6k, but with 14k salary, then you can expect your next firm to match your payscale.

Additionally, assuming you somehow apply back to the SG branch office, or if you get posted to another Asian site, you end up earning alot more.

Also, as long as you stay in the UK, it is easier to jump into the "big" international firms that are headquartered there. You end up earning the pedigree of being a MC firm assoc and it is easier to jump around after that.

Just work in London for a couple of years if you have a chance la. Assuming you have no commitments in SG or refuse to work overseas because of personal or family reasons, no rational law grad should turn down an opportunity to work in London for a Singapore firm.

Do you want to start your career in JPM or DBS?

Aren't you already a UK uni student? What's the difference, aren't you already studying there?
