Hi everybody!

I received offers by the above named universities (General Programs) and now time it's for me to make my decision and so far I am still undecided.

It is so difficult because of all the pro's and con's in fields like reputation, variety of subjects, city and mentoring.

Any thoughts? Especially with respect to Birmingham because I tend to accept that offer.

Thank you very much!!!!!

Hi Patrice,
It is very important to think about what fields you would like to study. Generally, Edinburgh is ranked higher internationally than the others so if you are most worried about reputation, you should choose Edi. It is by far the most prestigious of the four. However, you should never choose a school on reputation alone. If you have any idea about what subjects you are interested in it would be helpful in choosing your school as I am sure each are strong in their unique areas. Edi's LLM classes are seminar style and small, which is very helpful for learning at the advanced level. There are also many useful student groups and research centres in various areas based at Edi that help expand knowledge in the various fields. You can read about the student groups on their communities pages by following this link: http://www.law.ed.ac.uk/communities/
The top Int'l law group and the bottom four groups are all postgraduate run reading groups for LLM and PhD students. They are not only interesting as far as subject matter they are also a great source of social activity.
Additionally, Edinburgh is a beautiful city! The public transport makes getting around the city a breeze though most of the place is walkable even without it. The law faculty is over 300 years old and there are many lecturers who bend over backwards to help students make the most of their time here.
Best of luck with your decision!

I am also debating among these universities. But, I'm looking for a qualifying degree, so the LLMs do not work for me.

Edinburgh LLB Graduate Entry or Bristol MA in Law? Why so?

Thanks in advance!
