I am a final year EU student at the University of Edinburgh and I am about to decide where to do my masters. I have the following offers:
1) MSc Finance and Investment- University of Stratchlyde
2) MSc Investment fund management - University of Glasgow
3) MSc Finance and Investment - University of Nottingham
4) MSc Finance and Investment - Rotterdam School of Management (RSM)
I am on a tight budget, so I did not have the opportunity to apply for the top5 schools in the UK (Cambridge, Oxbridge, etc.).
My concern about RSM is that it is in the Netherlands and I don't know a word in Dutch. I know the program is in English and pretty much everybody knows English there, but I am still a little bit worried about this.
I would like to ask if somebody has more information about the quality of the programmes and the career prospects after graduation.
Thank you very much for your help.

I would go to RSM if I were you - I know a few people from there and some of them work in top tier investment banks in London... I'd say that it's one of the continental "targets", together with universities such as SSE, HEC, Bocconi

If on budget, Nottingham and RSM are the best options in terms of budget, syllabus, faculty and international student body. There are plenty EU and even Brits at RSM and they do fine academically/socially. The only downside is when it comes to hiring for certain jobs with Dutch requirement. But most international firms hire EU students at RSM. RSM is helpful and even has dorms for EU students. The education is equivalent with the exception of UK's top 5.
If you are serious, you should make a school visit.
