Hi all!
I've been admitted to the MA programmes of the University of Edinburgh (Comparative Lit & Modern and Contemporary Lit) as well as University College London (Comparative Lit) and find it hard to make a choice.
Edinburgh is well-known for English literature, but UCL has a higher ranking overall and its cooperation with SOAS might help since I'm a Chinese student. I'm also interested in the cross-disciplinary study of literature. Which uni is stronger in English-Chinese and cross-disciplinary comparative literature? I am also considering Edinburgh's MA in Modern and Contemporary English literature. But I am worried if it would be extremely hard for a non-native-speaker to achieve a satisfactory degree since I want to continue on to a Ph.D. What do you think?

Definitely Edinburgh, I don't know if you've been but it's a wonderful place. Also, when thinking about second year it'll be super expensive to live in London where as Edinburgh will be slightly cheaper

Thank you for your advice! I've never been there before but Edinburgh does seem to be an ideal place to study literature.
