  • View Poll Results: Which one should I choose?
    University of Glasgow
    University of Warwick
    University of Newcastle

    • Thread Starter

    I got offers like below (Master Degree):
    - Sustainable Energy Technologies at University of Warwick
    - Sustainable Energy at University of Glasgow
    - Renewable Energy Flexible Training Programme at University of Newcastle
    Which one should I choose?
    I'm thinking about pursuing PhD after that, but probably not in UK.
    Why Glasgow?
    - Nuclear Power Engineering subject (that can be interesting)
    - great library
    - a little bit cheaper
    - bigger city (probably easier to find a part-time job)
    - nice rank
    - great sport facilities
    Why Warwick?
    - focusing on fuel cells, which I'm interested in the most
    - more competitive (but I know I need to work very hard to get at least 2:1)
    - the highest rank
    - smaller, more quiet city
    - probably harder to find a job
    - starting in October (I will be in UK from July)
    - cheapest
    - modules focused on "market" role, a lots of subjects (from every area I will learn sth, but is it a good way to have more subjects but with less knowledge, to know a little bit of every sustainable energy area?)
    - accredited (IMechE)

    What to do?

    This seems to be a really specialized area, so I am not sure many people know about this topic.

    I am also interested in renewable energy and sustainability, but from the policy side, so I am considering between UCL Energy Economics and Policy vs. Sussex Energy Policy.
