    Hey! I'm going to be studying renewable energy systems next year, but I have yet to entirely decide on a school. I applied to many schools across Europe and the US, but I have narrowed down my choices to two schools. Those schools are the University of Southampton and the University of Edinburgh.

    The M.Sc. at UoS seems to encompass more varieties of renewable energy while the UoE focuses more on solar, wind, tidal. I understand the UoE has a much higher world ranking, thus is more internationally renown, but that should not dictate my decision. I was hoping someone could answer these questions:

    1) Does the UoE offer courses on nuclear energy I could take as part of my M.Sc.?
    2) Which school offers better facilities in this field?
    It seems that UoS has a better engineering department, but I'm not familiar with either school's facilities asides from UoE tidal simulator.
    3) Which school has a better environment to maintain sanity, while also achieving a great education? In your opinion of course!
    4) Any other information you feel I should know would be greatly appreciated!
