[/quote]You will have a decent chance of securing some good jobs here. Of course, with your current profile you must be earning mega bucks back home itself as Bits Pilani is well known back home and you can get into the top companies. In UK, IB is a happening space but from what I have seen, the top paying roles are more for Business Analysts with IB domain knowledge or actual advisors and investment agents. I havent seen much in terms of core development specific to top Investment banks - but then I may be wrong as I have no info in that sector.
On word of advice - If you get Rs 12 lakhs and above, thats close to Â£20000 in UK. Again, a profile such a yours has no scope in plain vanilla coding and development but only in roles such as IT Architect, Solution Designer, Lead Analyst etc and if you work in London, you can earn upto Â£80000 but such jobs are highly contested. If you come here and target development jobs then its best to stay back home as they wont pay more than Â£40k tops. As you have time, prep yourself on senior level roles as mentioned above and you will have a great chance of success.
You competition will be Masters students from the UK and especially from colleges like LSE, City Uni London, Kings College, Warwick, Oxford and Cambridge - most IBs prefer picking up IT Masters students from such colleges and pay mega bucks - this is just FYI so you know your competition and not to scare you
All the best
Your prediction is bit correct , iam actually getting 15 Lacs/annum in india .The reason i want to come is a bit different.
First things first i want ask about the things as you have mentioned ,about the roles . I believe in IB it wil not be plain development
roles ,because if your are in front office (trading system) development/support you have to do every thing from requirement gathering to testing & UAT ,that's how working in IB is (what i heard from sources , if any body is woking in IB software development pls comment
),I heard IB /hedge fund pays high 75-100K Â£.
Even if you search in jobserver.uk you can fine front office developer roles in IB /hedge fund companies are paying high 75 to >100K .Does any body have any idea about them ?Please put some light on that. if you see below mentioned link , you can get more info

My only doubt is ,are these salaries are true , or just a way to attract talent. After going to interview again they quote 40-50KÂ£
My profile suits to what they mention in the job description.
I have one more doubt does Sun Certified Enterprise Architect Certification has any value in UK . I heard it has good value in US i dont know about UK. Iam asking this because , i have cleared one level ,iam just thinking to take the last level are not. If it is having some significance i can put effort &clear the level2 & level3 exam
