St Andrews vs EdinburghWatch this thread
I am still waiting to hear back from Sheffield and Durham.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know anything about those courses but I think, for a masters, practicalities matter more than anything else, especially if you plan on doing a PhD afterwards. I don't really see the point of spending thousands on living costs in an expensive city like St Andrews when you could do a (presumably) equally good course via distance learning at a very good university. If the Edinburgh course interests you then go for that one. You might get more expert advice if you posted this in the Postgraduate Applications forum.
