    I have got unconditional offers from the following
    University of Edinburgh - Economics Ma(Hons)
    University of Edinburgh - Economics with finance Ma(Hons)
    St. Andrews University - Economics Ma(Hons)
    Durham University - Economics with politics Ba

    As I am an international student, I do not have too much information about the international reputation of the above universities and courses. I have seen quite a lot of rankings, both overall and specifically for economics, but I guess ranking isn't everything.

    I anyone in here have some experience from any of the universities regarding international reputation, I would appreciate it greatly of would share with me!

    the 3 are very similar

    I think the prevailing opinion on this forum is that St Andrews and Durham are marginally better than Edinburgh.

    If you rule Edinburgh out, you should then decide whether you want to study economics & politics or straight economics and also compare the campuses, modules offered etc.
