Hi,

I would like to find out if anyone has any experience taking their masters program in urban studies in either Sheffield University (UK), or Cardiff University (Wales)?

I have been accepted to Sheffield's MA in International Development and Planning and Cardiff's Msc in International Planning and Development. Both courses are pretty similar in their coursework, duration of course (1 year), costs and call themselves UK's top planning school. I probably should make a trip to visit both places since I've not been to either Sheffield or Cardiff, but am 'grounded' till school starts this Fall, due to work commitment.

Short of flipping a coin to choose between these 2 schools, I do hope that a fellow Cyburbian may be able to share their experience! Much appreciated!
