Good luck with your masters course. Do you currently live in the uk?

From my understanding I think Scotland allows graduates to stay in Scotland for two years after. However if you want to stay in finance most the jobs are in Edinburgh.
That way strathcylde is a good choice and Glasgow is a great place to study and live.

The other obvious choice is studying in London with close access to the city.

What's the rationale for the uni's and course choice as you job around a lot? If your wanting to stay in Finance it worthwhile knowing that is snobby place and its worthwhile going to a uni with a really good reputation. Normally this is due to the quality of the uni or the reputation of the course in your chosen field.

Hi Sarah,
Thank you for your prompt reply. I currently live in India, but would want to finally settle in UK.Asyou rightly pointed out, reputation of the university is of great importance while choosing where to study, could you also help me with how you would rank the universities in the list above, as I'm not sure how reliable the Internet rankings really are. Thanks.
