    I was wondering what if i'm accepted in Glasgow and Bath/Bristol. Do you think it would worth paying the fees to go to the English ones? I'm an Eu student so it's free in scotland. Thanks!!

    I would say Bath/Bristol are better than Glasgow, so probably yes but really the difference in what you learn wouldn't be too big. If you think you are good enough for Bath/Bristol then apply, I don't think the money issue should affect your decision too much.

    On the other hand, £27000+ is alot to pay for when essentially it is the same thing. Do bear in mind that the Scottish system is different and more similar to the American one: if you want the flexibility of taking on other subjects which aren't related to econ. All of their courses are also 4 years rather than 3 so its an extra year.

    Also as a general overall reputation, Edinburgh is ranked 20th in the world whereas Bath doesn't even make it into the world top 100... It is highly likely that employers in France won't even notice the difference.

    I'm also going for Edinburgh and the point of studying abroad is not obviously to come back and work in France. Isn't the scottish 4 years for a MA? and English ones for for a BA/Bsc ?

    Well in any respects they're both good universities, Bath is just ranked slightly higher but in terms of employers they don't really care whether it was 7th or 12th as long as its not say 99th out of 102. :lol: I don't understand why living/working in Paris/France is "unfortunate". I'd love to be in your position.
