Hello, I write from Italy! I have 24 years old (25 in a month), I have a bachelor degree in Industrial Design and in June 2017 I'll take another bachelor in Computer Engineering.
I'd love to sign up for the Msc in Artificial Intelligence at the university of Edinburgh, but I have a "problem".
This week a company in Italy has offered me a job. It is a good job, with a good pay (in the field of Design, not computer science), and I think it will be good to do a little experience here. The fact is that I don't know if I should work only an year here and then try the application for the msc for september 2017, or if I have to posticipate the university until september 2018. In italy a person who is applying for a master and is 27 years old is seen as too old, how is the politic of the university of edinburgh about age? If they receive an application from a person of 27 years who has excellent grades and has been working all those years, even if he's "old" they will consider his request?
Is it age discriminating?
