I'm heading to Edinburgh for International Banking and Finance Law.
1. Emilio Avgeoulas, course chair. World renowned acamedic with experience from Citi. Best of both worlds.
2. Specialization. Three courses focusing on what you need to know if heading for a career in banking/finance.
3. Edinburgh. Incredible city. I got into all the London schools and Edinburgh and still chose Edinburgh. London is really not my cup of tea. Prefer the university town vibe.
Regarding prestige. Nobody cares whether you go to QMUL or Edinburgh. Maybe a better connection to Citi firms via a London uni, if that's what you are looking for.
