    I'm looking at doing a psyche conversion course in Scotland and I've been trying to find out what the differences are between courses.



    1. Glasgow MSc Psychological Studies
    Pros- I can stay with my family for a year for the course. I can still apply for this year.
    Cons - A lot of exams.
    2. Edinburgh MSc Psychology of Mental Health
    Pros - The course was so popular this year that they closed the application deadline earlier than expected. They have a 'superstar' neuroscientist on the teaching faculty.
    Cons - I'll have to wait until next year to start the course.
    It would require me to either commute or move to Edinburgh.
    The course is the most expensive of the three I've mentioned.
    3. St. Andrews MSc in Psychology
    Pros- No exams whatsoever. (This appeals to me more). Cheapest course of the three.
    Cons - would need to move to Dundee or St. Andrews.
    Would not be able to start until next year.

    I'd really appreciate any comments from those who have studied these courses or who may be in a position to compare courses.

    You really have to weigh up the pros and cons for yourself as no one else can tell you what's important for you. In terms of course there are bounf to be some differences so pick the most interesting.
