Basically I can't decide between two universities for Primary Education...
The first is a four year masters course, which looks fantastic, not to mention in a fantastic area, but the university is less well known, especially internationally
The second is a very well known university, with a good course but it's a basic three year BA in a less nice area
I know everyone says to choose the course over the university, but obviously having a degree from a well known, well respected university might be more useful..they both want the same grades too, so I can't firm and insure both.
Thanks for any help
Choosing between better uni or better course? watch

I'm doing primary education aswell :-) it really depends on both universities and which one you feel more at home with (as you'll be living there for up to four years.) I don't think the actual course would make much of a difference as long as you make an impression and are good at what you do. What two universities are you considering?

What do you mean by the 4 year course being 'fantastic' and the other being 'basic'? Dont fall into the trap of thinking that a '4 year Masters' gives you the equivalent of a postgrad degree course. It most certainly doesnt.
Scottish degrees for instance are simply 'longer'. They cover the same material as a 3 year degree but are more 'strung out' with the first year being much more 'introductory' than at a '3 year Uni'. They are still only *undergraduate degrees*. Three year courses are therefore *not* 'basic'.Last edited by returnmigrant; 01-04-2013 at 05:44.
