Hi,
I am an international student and hold unconditional offers for both universities. Leeds is IET accredited whereas Glasgow is not but Glasgow is cheaper than Leeds. Kindly help me to make a good decision! Which uni is more prestigious for employers?
Thanks,
Hamza

Who says Glasgow is not IET credited. Dude go through website again and see that Glasgow is best Scottish university for Electrical and electronics engineering more than Edinburgh!!!
Moreover, it is clearly written on the website that B.Eng and M.Eng courses are IET credited. They didn't write that for M.Sc. , so it is very unclear. M.Sc. maybe or maybe not IET accredited.

You should write an email to the department and ask before writing confirmatory statements here. This may lead you to falsification of truth defamation as well!

Hey,

I am talking about MSc Electronic & Electrical Engineering and I have confirmed it by emailing to the university that this course is not IET accreditated. This course is of accreditable standards and has been accreditated before but now university chose not to accreditate it.

No doubt that Glasgow is one of the best if not the best epecially in this course. I am also tilted towards Glasgow but Leeds is also a good university (according to UK's national rankings better than Glasgow whereas Glasgow is better in global rankings) and its course is accreditated. Leeds became 4th in Electronic & Electrical Engineering whereas Glasgow is 5th (https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...ic+Engineering). Basically I got confused because of this IET thing.

Thanks

Can you please care to show me the email you got from them "stating that UoG is not IET credited" by forwarding on my email [email protected]. I am very much supporting UoG because of my seniors who had this particular subject which I too got.
And
Please; National Ranking sucks out big time (they are pretty much biased). Don't go for them I will suggest you; if you really wanna go for a subject ranking then look for QS Subject Ranking; THE Subject Ranking; ShangaiRankings of University for the subject ; US Global Education ranking of World Universities for the subject.

But in the end, I would be on your side that Leeds v/s Glasgow; indeed Leeds has over-placed Glasgow in every subject ranking which I mentioned above!!!

A non-accredited course means lesser graduate employability if you aren't concerned upon fetching job at University and want to pursue more higher education leading to PhD then non or IET hardly makes any difference. But if you want a job, then IET accreditation will play a heavy role.
Peace
