I have recently been offered places on the MRes Clinical Psychology (Birmingham) and MSc Psychological Research Methods (Sheffield), and am in the process of weighing up where to study.
Any advice or information is welcome, particularly with regards to how the above compare:
- University (rankings, reputation)
- Postgraduate life
- Course (if you have studied either of the above)
- City (where is good to live/avoid; lifestyle; transport)
- Prospects (job opportunities)
Briefly, I hope to continue after postgraduate study into either a PhD or research/assistant psychology positions before aiming to complete the DClinPsy and qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist. From this perspective, I am particularly keen to hear from any psychology grads on which course may best help this career pathway.
Many thanks in advance.

I wouldn't worry about reputation/rankings. The two courses sound very different so I'd have a look at where you want to go next and what the entry requirements for that are and choose accordingly. You may also want to consider which course gives you more experience or exposure in the field/area you want to end up and maybe links with places you may want to end up.

Both are Russel group, so reputation wouldnt really matter.
