    Hi guys!

    I have decided to do a masters course to increase my knowledge about a topic that I am really passionate about. The masters will also help me progress forward to a PhD which will be the first step for me in academia. (I want to work as a lecturer/researcher)

    I started looking for universities to apply to and I ended up with the 3 below:
    Glasgow Uni
    Durham Uni
    Birmingham Uni

    I have already applied to University of Glasgow and received an unconditional offer for MSc in Quantitative Finance. However I would like to know your opinion on the quality and prestige of these 3 universities and if there are any other universities that I should look at. (it must cost close to £10 000)

    At Durham University I looked at MSc Finance (Economics and Finance) and at Birmingham University the MSc in Investments got my attention.

    At the moment I am studying BA (Hons) Finance and Investments with a 1:1 expected.

    Thank you!

    Do not go to Durham.
