    So I just completed my BSci Neuroscience course at Nottingham and have decided to go onto do a masters. However I'm unsure whether to go to continue on in Nottingham or move to UCL.
    I know UCL is one of the most prestigous universities for this field, but in Nottingham I know the lecturers and know how committed they are to there students. This means I'm deciding between prestige and having lecturers who are actually invested in my future and success, and I don't know which is going to more valuable (especially due to the ridiculous costs of living in London.)
    So basically if anybody has any knowledge on the quality of guidance from the neuroscience lecturers at UCL it would be much appreciated (particularly how approachable the lecturers are and how much theyre willing to help)

    Lecturers in any uni are dedicated (some more so than others) because we have an academic reputation to maintain and in most places there is a feedback process which is important for our career progression. Pick the more interesting course and from which you'll get more experience and exposure to things you're interested in. Cost is also a major factor. Moving around is good in academia but make sure you're doing it for the right reasons.
