University of Bristol or University of Edinburgh for Mathematics

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

    Hello, I'm deciding between these universities to apply to for maths (second year entry, accelerated course for Edinburgh).
    It would be very helpful to get some opinions on the advantages/disadvantages of both these universities for their mathematics courses.

    I'm finding it relatively easy to get information about Bristol's course, but Edinburgh is trickier due to not being familiar with the Scottish system.

    All information would be useful but I'm particularly interested in knowing:
    -Which has the more challenging course
    -Which has, on average the higher quality student (both in and outside of maths)
    -Any specific strengths or weaknesses of either course/department

    I understand these are not necessarily easy questions to answer (partly why I'm posting this here).

    Thanks in advance for any help you give.

    I'm not familiar with the Maths course at Edinburgh, but have you looked at Edinburgh's degree tables at drps.ed.ac.uk?
    http://www.drps.ed.ac.uk/16-17/dpt/utmathb.htm is the one for Maths BSc, for example.
