1. What are the top 10 Mathematical Finance programs (or other Masters programs) in the UK, which are target schools for quant hedge funds and prop trading firms?
2. Is it true that the UK doesn't have a significant number of quantitative hedge funds or prop trading firms?
3. Are there any issues that you would want to warn me about, if I plan on pursuing an MSc in Mathematical Finance to get into quant funds/prop shops in the UK/EU?

I am not applying to the US because of the H1B lottery uncertainty and applying to the UK because of its upcoming 2 year post study work visa.

did you not already ask this? the answer hasn't changed in the last few weeks!

1. I don't think the course matters all that much but look for one from a "red brick" / top 10 university. the Cambridge tripos would be very well respected
2. no (maybe slightly fewer in this post-Brexit more heavily regulated world). but still, no
3. be very aware that an MSc isn't a guarantee of a job and you will be expected to demonstrate your skills and interests in other ways ( project work, Kaggle, etc). oh yeah and that london is an expensive place to live.
