I received an unconditional offer from both university for a postgraduate course in management, and i really can't decide what to do: UoE seems to be the best overall, with much stronger international reputation, whereas RGU is usually not regarded to be on of the best universities in the UK, but my long term goal is to work in the energy field and Aberdeen is the best place to be then. Furthermore, fees for UoE are considerably higher while the level of student satisfaction is pretty low (i have no idea why).

Having said that, my question is: is it really worth it to firm for Edinburgh? Also considering that the level of RGU graduates finding a job after few months is one of the highest in the country?

Go to RGU if you just want a job in the field, if you want a job in the field and possibly a good education and want to live in a great city then choose Edinburgh. It shouldn't matter either way to be honest.

Hi Dosh90

How are you getting on with your decision? It can be quite tricky deciding between courses.

If you are still struggling decide it might be worth having a chat with the course leaders to get a better understanding of where previous graduate from that course have gone on to work.

With regards the MSc Management course at RGU if you opting to study the full time route then placements are available whilst you study (Sept starts only). This would be a good opportunity for you to get some experience in the energy sector whilst you study. If you want to contact the course leader you can find their details on our website - http://www.rgu.ac.uk/business-manage...ate/management

You may also wish to have a look at the Aberdeen Business School Placement Office information and contact them - http://www.rgu.ac.uk/about/faculties...acement-office

If you would like to speak to a current student then again the course leader may be able to arrange a conversation so you can find out more.

You are correct about our employability rate, this is probably the thing we pride ourselves on the most. Our Postgraduate employability rate is 97%, you can find out a bit more about it on our website www.rgu.ac.uk/better

Good luck with your decision and good luck with your studies whichever uni you choose!

Kind Regards,
Camilla

What you neglect to tell people is that this magical "97%" is a skewed figure and is not in their "field of expertise" but can include the likes of ASDA, Sainsbury, Lidl, and Mcdonalds. RGU excels at incompetence.
