MA in Comparative literature/English Literature: Edinburgh or UCL?Watch
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
