Tuition fees in Cranfield are less...

I know nothing about these particular courses but Warwick is a much more reputable university than Cranfield. Whether it's better (e.g. in terms of teaching quality), I don't know, but it certainly has a better reputation. If you are planning to work with people who will know the reputations of UK universities, these two are not in the same league.

Although league tables clearly aren't the final word on university quality, Warwick is consistently ranked in the top 10 within the UK. I cannot even see Cranfield University listed on The Guardian, The Times, or the Complete University Guide league tables, which each report the top >120 universities.

Warwick has a list of international scholarships here.

Great question. I don't think so, though, but maybe someone else will know the answer. It was a long time ago that I applied through UCAS!

Hi Hamdi26,

Congratulations on your offer from Warwick and from Cranfield University. Both Universities are reputable and top in their fields and have partnered together on a good number of ventures. Like you, I am an international student, however, doing a PhD in Cranfield.

Cranfield is the UK-only postgraduate University, hence we are research-intensive and do not have any undergraduate courses or units. Hence we do not appear in the general university rankings website, as these tend to build their ranking on undergraduate courses. However, Cranfield is ranked top 50 in the world in mechanical, aeronautical and manufacturing engineering in 2016. The only UK universities in that list are Cambridge, Imperial and Oxford. As your course is a manufacturing course, Msc Engineering and management of Manufacturing Systems is ranked top 50 in the world.

Ultimately, it depends on what you want for an MSc. Cranfield offers the reputation, the industry connections and partnership (you will spend 4 months working on a live group project with 3-4 team members for an existing company) and, if you are keen on research after your degree, you will have the opportunity for that at Cranfield. I would suggest that you study the module contents and, perhaps, make a decision on it based on what you want from the modules.

I hope it goes well!

Yeah thank you! that s what I am doing! I found that the group project is very interesting and a plus for Cranfield ... However the course contenent is almost management oriented rather than manufacturing technics etc comparing to Warwick... Anyway... I am studying both offers from the different sides .. and i will choose the best for me

You are welcome Hamid! Certainly, I would suggest, if I could, that you study the modules/ course content and find out what you would prefer. I haven't had a look at Warwick, however, as the name of the MSc courses are different, the modules will be different too. But both are top Unis— so you can be assured of a certain high, uncompromisable standard when you resume! All the best!
