    Hello all,

    I'm an international student, currently deciding my insurance and firm choices. I am divided between Edinburgh and Manchester.

    Both are very good unis, in beautiful cities. From what I have seen amongst league tables and websites such as this, Manchester is deemed a better school in UK but Edinburgh is more reputable worldwide.

    Since, I am not familiar with both unis that well, I was hoping you guys can advise me which one is better for economics studies.

    Hi, I study at Edinburgh so I can't say much about studying at Manchester. There are a few key differences between studying in Scotland and England.

    - Usually 4-years Bachelors (with/without exchange year) = 1 more year of uni life, 1 more summer internship?
    - Possibility of exchange in 3rd year around the world (US, Singapore, HK, Canada, etc...)
    - Free tuition fee for EU students
    - Ranking wise, take a look at their ranking criteria
What's the best type of cheese?
