Hello, I am applying to college this year to study computer science and I want to add one Scottish school in my list of universities. I am between st. Andrews and Edinburgh. On one hand, St. Andrews has a better ranking for the subject (ranked 4th in the UK) but it is isolated so the student life might not be as good. On the other hand, Edinburgh is not ranked as highly for computer science but it is located at a greater city with much more to do than at st. Andrews. Which one would you suggest I choose, taking into consideration both the academics and the student life?
Hope the above two answers helped.
