I have got offers from the following universities and would appreciate if someone would guide me as to which uni to choose on the basis of intl reputation,location,ease of finding jobs ....my offers are- Bristol uni(accounting and finance),durham uni (accounting and finance),uni of bath (bba),bocconi uni italy (economics and finance),uni of melbourne(bcom),uni of sydney(economics and finance),uni of Edinburg (accounting and finance) . I have seen that the australian unis fare well in the international rankings but am not too sure about their reputation abroad.bocconi is supposed to be a good uni for economics but is it really good for an intll student?on the other hand the league tables in the uk tell a different story from the world rankings.please help.......

Bococoni has a strong reputation as a business school. Edinburgh brand name is the best, though not as a strong a business school but fantastic city. Melbourne would be great fun! All depends on your reasons.

I agree with "Eblofeld". Edinburgh brand name is the best, but since you want to study Economics I think you should go to a university specialised in the business field. Internationally speaking, I would not consider Bath and Durham since they prepare you for a career mostly based in the UK. I don't know that much about Australian universities. Bocconi is the Italian LSE, it is a very competitive university, its rankings are quite good, it gives you lots of opportunities to study abroad and there are a lot of international students.

I have not yet received an offer from warwick but it is possible that I could receive one for accounting and finance. Do you think that it would be wise to reject warwick for bocconi. I know that bocconi is a great business school but am not sure about the bachelor's degree.plus I do not have any preferences as to the country I want to settle in (but definitely not india as I currently live there).I checked that the Melbourne uni is ranked in the top ten for finance in the world rankings.how good is a degree from Australian considered abroad? Thank you........

The bachelor's degree is considered prestigious in Europe. You can study there for 3 years, then apply for another university (such as LSE) for a Master of Science. I really haven't talked to anyone who attended an Australian University. Consider that Bocconi gives you the chance to study at Warwick, Durham, Columbia or an Australian University in your third year!

It is not easy to get into, it's just that most places are reserved for international students, since it aims to be an international course so basically for international applicants there is less competitiveness than Italian ones. You learn the same things, but you might get higher marks than the courses taught in Italian: that is why there might be students who find difficult studying in English in their first years, but honestly I haven't tried it on myself, it's just a "rumour". Bocconi reserves 65% of places for their Msc Programs to Bocconi students. At the end of your third year, you have to go through another selection based on what you did during your three years, so they don't admit you automatically, but you need to have high grades in order to be admitted at their Msc programs.
