    Hello all.

    I seriously need advice and yours are highly appreciated.

    I am an international non-business graduate. I received 4 offers to study MSc Marketing at UEA, Sussex, Sheffield and Leeds. In terms of course content, I think the last three focus more on Marketing while in UEA, I will learn about other aspects of business, such as People in Organisations: Managing Change or Information Systems and Operations besides Marketing. Do you think it's important to read Marketing at a CIM-accredited institution, which is UEA?

    In terms of reputation and career prospects, which is the best option here?

    Thank you very much.

    Depends on what you want to do with that qualification and where you want to go with it.

    I am a non-business graduate so I need a conversion programme to enhance my career prospects.

    Actually, I prefer UEA because as far as I know, living cost in Norwich is cheaper than other cities. I have a tight budget.

    The MSc Intl Management & Marketing at Sheffield is a very new programme and they offer a reduction in tuition fee. However, this year will be the first time this programme is run so I can't ask anyone about its quality.

    Among these 4, is it true that Leeds is the most reputable university and has the best graduate prospects?

    Thanks.

    Living costs in Norwich are pretty low (uni accommodation varies from £70-100 p/w and housing tends to cost about £250-280 a month plus bills for a 4/5/6 bed house..

    You'll have a good time at the uni. I just wonder if the overall reputation of Sheffield and Leeds might be better, but UEA is certainly a good prospect.
