    Hi...

    I need some advice on which to choose as as my 5th choice in UCAS for Mchem Medicinal chemistry ... should it be Manchester or Edinburgh. I am an international student and I have the grades for both (A*A*A*A*A). Cost wise I think both would be more or less the same for me. Urgent advice please...thanks a ton in advance

    Are you applying for the second year entry at Edinburgh? If not, it will be significantly more expensive than Manchester because the course is a year longer.

    You can't really go wrong with either, they're both excellent universities although Edinburgh has more cachet abroad, especially in America. Have you had a look at the modules in each degree? The optional modules, particularly in the final year, are likely to be quite different - which do you prefer?

    Hi..had put in Manchester but have substituted the choice to Edinburgh...have asked for a 2nd year entry... based on grades, it should be possible... Edinburgh has a optional year abroad as well which is interesting.... strangely I hadn't rec'd an acknowledgement from Manchester in 6 days .. but rec'd one immediately from Edinburgh... must have been a software glitch at Manchester...... normally when would one expect to hear back from UCL and Edinburgh? would anyone know?
