    Hello everyone! I'm currently doing a business foundation course in the University of Exeter after completion of Sixth Form in Hong Kong, and my preferred major subject at university is Accounting and Finance.

    Despite the comparatively high local ranking of A&F in the University of Exeter, the global ranking of this uni is much lower than that of the University of Edinburgh in "QS World Ranking - Overall & Employer Review" and "US NEWS", and the graduate prospect of Exeter is generally lower than that of Edinburgh in local rankings like Times, Sunday Times, Guardian and Complete. Therefore, I am really worrying about the employability of graduates from Exeter in view of its low worldwide popularity.

    My Questions are:
    1) Which one, Exeter or Edinburgh, is more suitable for me if I may go back to Hong Kong or mainland China to pursue my career after graduation?

    2) Actually I am quite interested in the "Accounting and Finance with Industrial Experience" course in Exeter as it guarantees a year's work experience in the Third year. However, the A&F course in Edinburgh does not ensure a work placement. Is undertaking work experience really important for A&F students?

    3) What aspects should I focus on more while making decision? global ranking, course structure, local subject ranking or etc.?

    Many Thanks!
