Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Hi,I was accepted into the following three Masters Programmes:- MSc in Operational Research and Applied Statistics at Cardiff University- MSc in Statistics at Imperial College London - MSc in Data Science (with a specialization in Statistics) from University College LondonPerhaps what makes my decision a bit tougher is that I might get a full scholarship from Cardiff University, and a 50% tuition scholarship at UCL and Imperial College London (though this is a little less likely).I wanted to know any general thoughts about the courses/universities from people who might be somewhat familiar with them (in order to know a bit more about how they compare). Any comments are welcome, though in particular thoughts about the course content, graduate prospective (either working directly afterwards or pursuing a PhD), research or experiences as an international student will be particularly helpful!! Thanks a lot!

    Only you can decide this - it depends on your interests and the content of each course. Your graduate prospects will also depend on you - no course will guarantee you a job - life is what you make it.
