    Hello Everyone

    I am an international student with offers to study MSc in Finance from both QMUL and University of Exeter. Location, student life and everything aside, I would like to know which university would offer me a better edge career wise or in securing a training contract?

    Exeter has a better ranking within UK (Nationally) while globally, QMUL ranks higher than Exeter. This is creating a lot of confusion. I have to take a decion in a week's time. Please help.

    Thanks in advance!

    Neither of them are very good in Finance IMHO and I don't even think QM offers Msc.Finance? Ranking is just *******s dont even care about it, use it only as a relative reference.

    Exeter seems to be slightly better in terms of business connection.

    You should probably apply for more institutions, if they want you to pay deposit simply contact the admission and ask for postponement. If you can get offer from QM you can definitely try Glasgow and durham & possibly Cass, which are targeted by banks, have much better international recognition as well.

    Do you know how to ask for a postponement for paying the deposit? I am in this situation, with deadline of reading, offer holder of Exeter& QM, still waiting for UCL, Bath, Warwick, Lancaster.

    Were you not contacted by the admission office? Simply email them saying that you wanna delay payment

    They just told me I can have a elegant period before 14 Jan but that is exactly the date that I should pay for the deposit. What further argument should I use?

    Thank you so much !

    Just honestly tell them that you are waiting for other institutions, it happens all the time I believe they would understand. Mean while contact warwick and others to track the application progress.
