I have been offered the course of Msc. Finance and management from cranfield university but now I am confused if I should also consider cheaper universities as well. I was thinking to apply for Glasgow university as they have Adam Smith scholarships. My other choices were lancaster, loughborough, aston and kent.

Any guidance or suggestion would be helpful

SAAS is the company/website you use to apply for student finance! they pay your tuition and give you a loan (and in some cases a bursary if you’re eligible) for living costs. you start to pay it back once you start making a certain amount of money a year but it all gets wiped after 30 years i think

according to The Complete University Guide, glasgow ranks first for accounting and finance in the UK so yes! glasgow overall is just a really well respected university and a russell group so no matter what degree you do there it’ll look good, plus the city’s nice but i’m a bit biased as i live there

What are your views on aston and kent? I have read that though aston has less reputation as compared but their connection with businesses and industries are quite well.

so i don't know if you know, so i'll say anyway:

in the UK, there is a collection of 24 universities called "The Russell Group" - these are generally considered the most prestigious: https://russellgroup.ac.uk/about/our-universities/

as you can see, aston and kent do not feature, but glasgow does.

understandably, you might want to go to an English university; however, Glasgow is very much respected by English, not just Scots.

basically, i would strongly suggest going to Glasgow, since none of the other universities you have mentioned are Russell Group.

i don't mean to cause offence, but i have never heard of aston or kent before, and you'll find quite a few people won't know about these either - BUT everyone knows what Glasgow is, and knows it's a good university.

I'll be straight with you, no amount of accreditation and ranking can make a university any better. Generally speaking, all universities are the same - you're only paying extra on the uni name. I would recommend you personally check out your courses and their topics. See which aligns with you best in terms of what you want in the future (most likely job prospects and knowledgable).

I have received offers from Adam Smith - University of Glasgow and Cranfield School of Management. Both are triple accredited. So, in a similar dilemma!
