    Basicly got offers from Edinburgh, York and Nottingham.

    Nottingham: Econ & Finance
    York: Economics and Economics & Finance
    Edinburgh: Economics.

    I have no idea which to choose!

    My teacher says York > Nott/Edinburgh but I have to look at the whole picture.

    Quality, work possibilities, living in each of the cities... etc

    Help!

    Its a good city and all but its small and if you want the proper uni expeience it's a bit boring. Notts is epic apparently and I'd have dont anything to have applied to Edinburgh so I'd say notts or Edinburgh

    I personally wouldn't pay much to them as it seems most of them are basing their assumptions as if you were doing an undergrad.
    What uni are you at now? how much econometrics have you done? are you looking to go into further academia?

    Whilst i would more or less agree with Notts being a better choice (highest RAE score out of all those unis) i would consider taking the degree courses into consideration, in which i would likely put York over Edinburgh unless you wanted to go into further study in the field of economics.

    Look at both these threads as they will be very useful to you.

    All the unis above are very reputable to job possibilities are probably going to depend more on your application than on the uni you go.

    I'm an international student, from the University of Iceland.

    I've done many Econometric courses(both undergrand and I've taken optional econometric courses for Msc students ).

    I'm not looking at going for a PhD, at least not yet.

    Well thats very good, ive talked to a fair few Msc students and what seems to stomp many students is the amount of econometric modules, however it seems like you will be very well prepared for an Msc. If you cannot visit them i would try and visit the Nottingham, York and Edinburgh forums to get a feel as to what the unis are like.

    Since your not looking at a PhD i would rank them Nottingham>York>Edinburgh
