any good studying in the uk?


hi everyone. i would be so grateful if all of you can give me some advice.

i was an undergrad at berkeley, major in environmental science and took some cyplan courses there. i didnt get a minor in cyplan as i was running out of available academic credits.

i decide to get a master in cy plan but not sure where. berkeley is a great choice but i want more international exposure.

is attending a UK school any good? I realize that UK has one year MSc programs, which means it costs less (versus a two year program in the US) yet UK MSc program are not accredited in the US.

will i have trouble getting work (mainly transportation planning) in the US once I complete my study in the UK?

Please advise, thanks
