    I have received offers from Glasgow , Aberdeen and Edinburgh for Accouting and Economics and from St Andrews and Dundee for Financial Economics. I can't decide though which one to go for I want to go for the one that is highly regarded internationally and has the highest employment prospects. So which one should I go for?

    I think Edinburgh in terms of course, reputation and lets face it, not many people have heard of st andrews internationally because its a very small town. So edinburgh although either way st andrews is known among those in the know if that makes sense
