Masters in Economics: Nottingham Vs QMUL Vs Bristol

I have conditional offers for MSc. Economics from University of Nottingham, University of Bristol and QMUL and I am not able to finalise one of them.
I am in my the last semester of my undergraduate degree and my predicted GPA is 8.50/10
So, here are my questions:
1) Which of the above mentioned university is good for Msc Economics in terms of modules offered, academic rigor, and research prospects after masters?
2) In the future I want to pursue research in energy and environment economics. Which university would give me the access to the relevant resources, research centres, leads; so that I can pave my path in the above mentioned field?
3) Even after choosing economics as my undergraduate degree I want to pursue MSc Economics to strengthen and build upon my foundation in economics, so from that perspective as well which university would be the best choice for me?

Out of interest, if you want to study the areas of environment and energy economics (or at least some postgrad classes in it as prep for a PhD in these fields), why did you apply to these courses?

As far as I can tell none of the three courses mentioned even have an environmental economics module, and none have any research centers that include environmental economics or energy economics. There are plenty of good UK MSc's that are either focused on environmental economics, are part of faculties that have a research centre focused on environmental and energy economics, or at least have modules covering these topics. It seems you've picked some of the few MSc Economics courses that have zero focus on these areas.

If you're simply looking to study subjects that would be foundational for environmental and energy economics (e.g. micro theory and applied micro) but not actually environmental and energy economics themselves then I would probably recommend Bristol out of these three. All three unis are fairly similar in terms of the level and career prospects, but Bristol seems to have more focus on applied micro than the others, even if none of them seem well suited to your interests.
