Hello everyone, I am an international student planning to pursue Masters taught in Mechanical Engineering in UK and i got following offers.

1.Univ of Bristol - Msc Engineering with Management (new course,. Not accredited by ImechE)
2. Univ of Leeds - Msc Mechatronics and Robotics
3. Queens Belfast - Msc Mechanical Engg. with Management (industrial internship option)

Since all the 3 are part of Russel Group, i am confused between which one to choose. Kindly do help if possible 😊

All are great universities but from your list, accreditation to the relevant professional body matters.

No, they're not - it's the "Russell Group"!

Which course do you prefer?

Does accreditation really matters in terms of employability and career ?

My main focus is on mechanical engineering. After going through course details, i really liked the one in bristol. But since its not accredited, i am in a dilemma.

I would say that if your future career path lies in engineering then it does matter.

I don't think accreditation is necessarily that important for a masters level, degree providing you have an accredited bachelors degree. Quite a lot of MSc degrees aren't accredited, and I haven't seen any evidence yet of holders of said degrees being denied chartership due to the lack of it, providing they have an accredited undergrad degree (and I would highly recommend doing an accredited BEng or MEng degree, by the way).

It's also worth noting that if you study a degree that is not currently accredited, which then receives accreditation later on, your degree will be accredited too. It can take a few years for a degree to become accredited, so bran new ones rarely are.
