MSc Economics - UCL, Trinity College Dublin or Edinburgh? watch

    • Thread Starter

    As the title says, I have offers from all 3 for MSc Economics.

    Obviously I'm inclined to go with UCL, but I'd like to know a bit more about TCD and Edinburgh; would going to one of those hinder my future career opportunities in any significant way? I'm 90% sure I don't want to go on and do a PhD.

    Do Edinburgh and TCD lose out significantly in the employer reputation/prestige department? Would I be shutting some doors to some of the more selective economic consultancies or finance firms if I went their instead of UCL.

    I'm currently waiting to hear from Warwick, but seeing as Warwick is so expensive (something like 23k+ compared to 18k for UCL), I don't think I'd even consider it

    My profile:
    Undergraduate degree at a top 5 uni for economics (however only half my course was in economics)
    Currently working as a professional economist since graduating a couple of years ago
