Hi,
I would like to know you suggestion regarding my current offers. I will be an international student. I got offers from aberdeen, city university london, university of reading, university of westminster and univeraity of law, london bloomsbury campus for international arbitration and dispute repolution course. I am really confused which to accept.
My views are as follows ( please correct me if i'am wrong)
Aberdeen- I think as aberdeen is in scotland, there would be less job prospects than big cities for an international student. Therefore it would be better if i choose nearby london.

City university london- There business school is one of the best in UK. However, i am not able to know about thier law school. Qs world ranking is also bit on a higer side than other universities.

Reading- Reading is close to london. University is good as it ranked 202 in qs rankings. Most importantly, the course module they offer is best suited to me. However, idk why no body wants to talk about reading. If you see youtube videos, you will not get much info. No reviews on llm guide or anywhere else on google. I really wanted to know more about reading.

Westminster- Mever saw in the qs rankings.

University of law- I think the above 3 is better than this offer.

Please share your views on this. More specifically on whether i should go for city, university of london or university of reading.

Hi Shaggy,
I can only comment on Aberdeen as I have an offer to study the module International Sale of Goods (online) in September.
I think Aberdeen is a great school with long tradition. I have visited the campus pre-corona in the Summer of 2018 and got to talk to academic as well as administrative staff and they were all very kind and provided me with a lot of useful information. The programme in dispute resolution is top-notch, I'd say.

The city itself, especially the centre, is magnificent, but that may just be my love for Scotland showing itself publicly ;)...  and you have miles of sandy beaches nearby; OK, the weather can be a problem if you are used to a lot of sun, but still. There are plenty of things to do: cinemas, theatre, clubs and pubs. The football club is also very popular and the stadium is a couple of blocks from the Uni.

As for the jobs, you might be aware of the fact that Aberdeen is still the Oil Capital of Europe and fairly cosmopolitan so I guess you would have little problem in finding a student job or maybe even staying there after you finish your studies.
I am going to accept my offer to study online at first and will probably take more modules on-site next year.

As for the other universities, I have only travelled through Reading in 2017, it seems to be a fairly peaceful city. I think the Law School there is good, but not as good as Aberdeen...just my humble opinion.
Last but not least, London is extremely expensive in terms of accommodation and food as you probably already know.

Hope this helps, good luck with your decision! 1f642
