Edinburgh v Strathclyde watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have an unconditional from Edinburgh and am still waiting to hear back from Strathclyde. My two personal choices are between Edinburgh and Strathclyde (I didn’t apply to the University of Glasgow, don’t ask why). I understand Edinburgh, being a Russel a group and an ancient university, is usually considered the best option. However, my family live in Glasgow which makes Strathclyde appealing; along with the fact that I generally think (not to stereotype) the social scene is better in Glasgow than it is in Edinburgh which also makes it more appealing.
    Ideally, I want to go to Strathclyde as I prefer Glasgow as a city but I understand it is seen to be below Edinburgh academically.
    Is there a major difference between a law degree from Edinburgh and Strathclyde and would this really matter in later life?
    Edinburgh seems like the best option as it is arguably one of the best Law schools in the country and it is a great opportunity to have an offer from here but I believe I may be happier studying in Glasgow.
    I don’t fully know how Strathclyde stands in the league table for Law and it would be great to know, in the long run, the major differences between a law degree from Edinburgh or Strathclyde.
