    Dear all, I am facing a very hard decision. I am a phd candidate in economics, I won a scholarship that finance a year of study in a top university. I got accepted to three programs:

    1) GSE Barcelona Master in Macroeconomic Policy and Financial Markets

    2) LSE Visiting Research Student
    With this program I have the possibility of working to my research project and at the same time attend 4 full courses (equivalent to a master). This is a non-degree program

    3) MIT - Advanced Study Program. This is a non-degree program that allows to attend 6 to 8 courses at the MIT.

    What would you do?

    I don't want to comment to avoid influencing your opinion...

    Only you can work out what is best for you. This doesn't sound like a straightforward situation. Think about what you want to get out of this experience, what facilities the places have and how this fits with your Phd and career plans.
