    Hello everyone,

    I am an international student(India). I have applied to the following univs for a master's in International Relations.. Univ of Birmingham, Glasgow, Loughborough, Sussex, Essex, St Andrews and Surrey.
    I have received unconditional offers for September 2016 intake from Univ of Birmingham (international relations with Diplomacy only for Birmingham), Glasgow and Loughborough. So far Birmingham tops my list. Loughborough has offered me 25% scholarship and although I'm not allowing this factor to interfere with my decision sadly it is.
    I would like to know if there are others who have studied at these univs and can provide some insight. That way I know I'm firm on my decision.
    Ps. Would 34 count as a mature student?

    Yes, 34 would count as a mature student. If you can comfortably afford to pay for a master's without a scholarship, then I would go for whichever course you like best. I suggest you use the search function (top right) to other students doing those degrees. Also check out the Postgraduate Applications forum.
