    We'll both are quite good, Stirling is in Scotland though which is freezing all the time plus it's a bit boring. Greenwich is also good and it's in London, it's so pretty as well, also I think there's more social life.
    Here did some research for you:

    Idk that much tbh because employers prefer respected Unis but in this case both are good. But for example if you went to a top uni and got a rubbish class of degree, then it wouldn't matter. So I'd say forget about rankings and go to one you think you'll do better in and be more relaxed that way you'll do better studying there

    Are there any differences in terms of course content?

    I wouldnt say scotland was boring like the other poster out but there will be less to do than in london

    London will be a lot higher living cost wise (probably about £3000 or more dependent on where you want to live there and how much you use the public transport etc)

    Yes for Stirling mostly has focus on research whereas Greenwich has focus on practical work as well...
    And as far the living cost is concerned..it will be fine by me. I will prefer staying on campus rather than private so travelling will be less and also it's safer

    Which one do you want more of/prefer? than go for that course imo as reputation is similar and you may only be there for 1 year so neither place will get boring as they will both be new. Unless you have a preference to a type of location then london for the big city and Stirling for the smaller city
