    I just need to decide which one to go for MSc Economics as the deadline to pay for deposit is approaching.

    So please rank these Uni in terms of overall reputation & Economics.

    Durham
    Bristol
    St Andrews
    Bath
    Nottingham
    Exeter
    Birmingham
    Leeds
    Sheffield
    Liverpool

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Really? You're happy for a bunch of anonymous strangers on the internet, with their own prejudices and biases, who may have absolutely no idea what they're talking about, to tell you where you should study? Seriously. Do some research of your own - you're going to have to do plenty of it on a masters course.

    I just would like to have some opinion as different people have different experiences about each uni. Surely it's me who will be deciding which suits me best. I have already done my research and the facts about each place. I just wanna know how each uni is perceived in comparison to each other as all of them are relatively on the similar tier of reputation.

    Thanks a lot for your comments. At first I thought Nottingham is reputable for Economics but overall reputation is below Durham / Bristol / St Andrews.

    Check the course content and assessment methods, which will be available online. Whilst the courses all have the same title, every uni can set their own content and they can be very different. The teaching bias will be geared towards departmental expertise. There's no point, for example, rocking up at a uni with a burning interest in heterodox economics if there are no members of staff working in that field.

    Plus you may be able to choose between courses which have different proportions of coursework assessment and exams, if one of those methods suits you better.

    I'm genuinely curious - did this thread give you anything constructive to help you choose a course? Where did you decide to apply for in the end?
