    Hello all, thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I have an offer to study Environmental Engineering MSc at Imperial and at Newcastle. The cost is £11,000 for the former and £6,000 for the latter. I completed my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science at Newcastle and my parents live pretty nearby.

    Is it worth going to Imperial? Will my job prospects be significantly improved with an MSc from Imperial as opposed to Newcastle, or is it the course itself that is largely important at Masters level? I will be able to afford Imperial with the government loan, personal savings and a job, so that isn't a major concern to me. Do you think it will be worth the large extra cost and upheaval to study in London?

    Thanks.

    Yes. Imperial is the place to go for any Engineering subject.

    Pick the course that interests you more and from which you'll get more in terms of experience. Don't worry about uni 'prestige'. It doesn't mean much.
