    I plan to study journalism at masters level. I have gotten offers from Sheffield, Cardiff, Leeds and Newcastle all for the courses of International Journalism. I am really confused but leaning towards Leeds and Newcastle, more towards Newcastle since it's giving me a scholarship. I really want to work for the, 'theguardian'. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    Have a look at where grads end up, links with industry and work and research opportunities. Also bear in mind that if you're a non-EU international student then you will struggle far more to get a job no matter where you study. The scholarship is an important consideration too. Also compare courses very carefully.

    There is no prestige factor per se. Employers are concerned with what you studied your grades and work experience.

    Cardiff has a strong journalism school.
