    I applied for international business with modern languages at both Strathclyde University and Edinburgh University. Strathclyde claim that they are #1 business school in Scotland however a few websites contradict this and say that the business school in Edinburgh is better. Does anyone have any advice as to how I can find out which course is better? Thank you

    I wouldn't pay too much attention to university marketing. If you are really fussed about uni league tables I would use something a little more impartial like the Guardian league table.

    The best thing to do is to visit both unis (if you haven't already) and see which one you prefer. Also look closely at the course details, the modules, the content of the modules and how the course is assessed. Both will be very different. The more you enjoy your course the better you will do.

    We have some uni reviews of Strathclyde and Edinburgh via our Uni Match tool.

    Also which city would you prefer to live in? Both are quite different

    Thank you very much! I currently live in Glasgow so I'd much rather move to Edinburgh tbh. However, I wouldn't move away to Edinburgh if the course at starthclyde is better f you get what I mean.
