M.Sc. in Geotechnical Engineering

Hello Guys. I've received These offers:
1. Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Birmingham
2. Geotechnical & Geological Engineering at the University of Newcastle

Could you please help me in choosing one of them? Newcastle's curriculum quite attracts me and I find it much more interesting than that provided by Birmingham which is a kind of traditional curriculum. However, I believe that Birmingham University is more prestigious and hard to get into than Newcastle.

Your insights are appreciated

If you'd prefer the course at Newcastle then go there. No difference in prestige between the two.
