I have recently been accepted by Sheffield (MSc Health Economics and Decision Modelling) and UCL (MSc Health Economics and Decision Science).
Sheffield is very well-known in terms of "Health Economics" and is included in Decision Support Unit (DSU) which is commissioned by NICE to conduct Health Technology Appraisal. The course offered by Sheffield is very modelling-focused, which sounds quite interesting and may be practical and useful.
UCL has good reputation overall but I am not sure whether it has good reputation in "Health Economics" as well. And this is the first year they run this programme, I am worried that they may not have enough experience.
Could anyone give me some advice?
Which one may give a better work prospect?
Any suggestion on this would be highly appreciated!

In terms of work prospects, they're probably similar just based on uni as they're both good unis. What will make a difference is skills, experience and course content so pick the one that's more interesting to you and from which you'll get more as a student.

I also got an offer from Sheffield which I am considering seriously. However, I am also considering Birmingham's programme and it is a tough decision...UCL although good, I think it will be their first year running this MSc...
