I have an offer to study a postgraduate (masters) science program at Edinburgh University in Scotland.

I also have an offer to study a postgraduate (masters) science program at Uppsala University.

In terms of reputation, which institution is the best option? Cost is not an issue. I am thinking about prestige and reputation /what looks best on my CV to employers.

- Is Edinburgh University well known to most Swedes? (Or maybe they only know Oxbridge/London Universities)?

Thank you.

I have been to both cities.

These are my thoughts...

Uppsala is very 'clean' and 'ordered' in the Swedish sense.

Edinburgh looks great but is also very 'chaotic'.

Uppsala may have a better quieter, learning environment.

Edinburgh is quite hectic but also very touristy / lots of sightseeing.

I think Edinburgh may have a better reputation than Uppsala University but I do not think the teaching will be as good?

I am not so sure...

I know nothing about Scotland, that being said - Scotland for sure. It's a no brainer.
