    So I have got 2 offers :
    MSc Investment and Finance at Queen Mary University Of London (with an 8000 Pound scholarship covering 40% of the tuition fee)
    MSc Investment and Risk Finance at the University Of Westminster (with 100% scholarship)
    So I am aware that QMUL is much better ranked and highly reputed. But the prestige of a 100% scholarship is also one to take into account. Given the costs in London are very high, going to Westminster will save me 10000 Pounds in comparision to QMUL. However, is it worth risking a highly ranked finance programme for those 10,000 Pounds?
    Both offers are good in their own way. What do you guys think I should go for?
    I'm slightly confused here whether to go with better ranking and reputation or go with the lower cost and risk.
    PS I am an international student so getting jobs is anyway going to be tough.
