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

It doesn't even really matter because they are all good. Go to the one you think you will be the most comfortable at.
