Between international tuition prices and money for housing I'll end up needing 50 thousand in student loans to cover my one year masters, to people who know of the university more than I do, is it worth it?

Edinburgh is a great university. Also, much higher in the QS World Ranking. Graduates from Edinburgh have a high employment rate.
However, it depends on your course and if it adds any value to the current job market.
If there are enough jobs with a good pay then go for it. If don't, then please reconsider. After all, no matter how amazing the university is if there aren't enough jobs in your preferred sector then it's gonna be difficult to pay back that loan.

If you don't mind me asking, what course did you apply for?

It depends upon your personal ambitions, preferences and the finances available to you.
Always trust your gut instinct and listen to what your common sense is telling you.

I'm in the habit of collecting postgrad qualifications.
But I wouldn't consider moving to Scotland.
Nor borrowing £50k to finance the tuition fees and living expenses to study any course at a Scottish uni.

That's superb. I personally love this subject.
Also, it's in demand these days especially in the media sector. You also get to work with the UN and its other bodies after you get some experience. I'd recommend you to proceed with it.
All the very best!
