    I have offers from the University of Edinburgh(for MSc. Artificial intelligence) and University of Sheffield(for MSc. Software Engineering) and University of Licester(MSc. Software Engineering).
    Which should I accept? Whats important is not only the reputation of the University(which would play an important role in gettin gme a job), but also that I know that after doing Software Engineering there would be more job prospects than otherwise. Edinbuirgh is my first choice, but having more job prospects after doing SE puts me in a dilema.
    Which offer should I accept? And on the whole, judging from placements after a MSc. degree the repuatation in general, which Universty is better.I also have offers form Exeter, Essex, East Anglia, Bradford, Brighton, Westminister, Kingston, though I guess the first three universities that I mentioned top the list.
    Please rate these Universities for me and help.
    Thanks.

    try here

    have to take tables with a pinch of salt...
    they are all good unis...just go to the one you like the best...all are good so won't affect jobs or anything which one you choose...
    i personally would prefer sheffield...very friendly...but cold in the winter!!

    if edinburgh is your favourite then go there- most important thing is that you will be happy there for 3/4 years

    I am from India, so I cant really look around. My remote location is another reason why I know absolutely nothing of these universities. There is no way(expect perhaps this) that I can get to know which university is better. I just applied in univs using the RAE table as a guide. Now that I am beginneing to get offers, I wish to choose the best of all the universities that accept me.
    My main concern is job placement but like u said, it doesnt matter which univ am i from. What about the reputation? Can anyone help me pick out the best. I know that there isnt any "best" but any sort of a rating would be really helpful.

    Well PQ has prettymuch summed up the stats. I'll just add that Sheffield has a lot of international students and a very good atmosphere for them. I have 3 international students in my flat and they all have made tons of friends and are very happy.

    Perhaps Sheffiled does have a more friendly atmosphere, but truthfully, what's more important is a high academic standard, good reputation and good job prospects.

    thanks a lot PQ....
    I guess the more I hear the better I like edinburgh. I also just heard from Ulster and Robert Gordon acceptng me.
    So now myfinal list becomes Exeter, Essex, East Anglia, Bradford, Brighton, Westminister, Kingston, Ulster, Robert Gordon along with Edinburgh, Licester and Sheffiled. And I am still waitng to hear from King's college london.
    I think I'll have to finally choose between Sheffield and Edinburgh. If there is a better university in that list than these two, then someone please tell me.
    And thanks again to all those people who have bothered to reply, you have no idea what a BIG help it's been to me.

    I thought that no student could apply to more than 6 UCAS institutions per year?

    I am applying for a MSc. course, that's not through UCAS, but I have to apply independently, so I can apply to as many univs as I want...no problems there...

    This is for postgraduate one/two yr masters courses - applications are direct and you can apply to as many as you can be bothered to fill in the forms for.
    ahhh...
