Hi All,

I have about 5 years of work exp 2 years teaching (university level) + 3years of IT experience with an Indian IT major...

I have got confirmed admission in 2 british business schools.
1> Lancaster
2> Strathclyde

Could some one advice on which of these schools is better and what are the positives and the negatives of each school.

Thanks in Advance


Thanks Amit !!

If any of u guys are aware of a good site which has info on UK admission and stuff then please provide me with the same....also wanted to know if theres any place in Mumbai which provides info on colleges in UK offering MBA then let me know abt it....

Again thanks in advance

hey guys.
ofwhat i know about the uk (might be wrong but still) is that finding a job after graduating aint a walk in the park. especially after graduating from a b grade school.

my advice formba applicants:

try utilising some scheme.
1. try for scotland (2yr work permit after any post grad)
2. try for schools listen by the uk govt which give a 1 yr work permit after grad. around 50 schools around the world are a part of that list.
3. get atleast 4 to 5 yr work ex before u come here. minimum for most schools is 3 yrs but average goes upto 7! more the experience, better the candidate u are for mba.

my advice for MSc applicants:

1. come if u dont have work ex, or if u want an extremely specialised course.
2. apply only to the TOP schools (check RAE and TQA ratings for individual courses)
3. dont get troubled by what chopra consultants or study overseas ppl say. take their help but do ur own research. then go to them.

do write back with queries and comments.


Hi Neo,
1) Well there is still ample time for 2006. Only thing is that it would be difficult for you to get any scholarships as you would be aplying in the later rounds.
2)As for the 1 year course you should keep the average expense at around 35000 pounds.
3) With 2 years it would be a bit difficult in a few colleges but you might be able to get in some other,easiest way is to check the 20-80 range of the work experience and if your work experience is bnot in the range save some application money. ont thing to remeber is to think of how much work experience you will have when U start the corurse in October,not today.
4) I would not suggest anyone with your level of work experience to return back to India and do a job search. The Indian companies will never give it a good consideration. You have to target to get a job in campus(posted in any country) or in the UK and then with that job in hand you can negotiate for a job in India.


Hello every1,

Have some queries....

1. I am looking for a 1 yr MBA course....As of now have not given GMAT...Wanted to know if i can still apply for 2006??...
2. Also want to know the avg expense that 1 has to bear for a 1yr course among the top 10-15 UK coll without any aid...
3. I have 2 yrs of work exp in software industry and am a BE in electronics with an avg academic background...I am actually interested in doing an MBA in finance....As i have no exp in finance would it be difficult for me to get an admission into the top 10 UK coll ???....Have also heard that some coll provide an MSC in finance....how gud is this course.....
4. I dont know if you guys can get some info on this but wanted to know the probability of fetching a good job in inida after doing an MBA/MSC in UK....

Any1 pls help me out...

Thanks in Advance !!!...:)

Hi Samarth

Your school list does not contain many top ranked schools yaar....
Oxford, Cambridge, Cranfield....
Do look out for these schools as well.
In case you dont mind doing a one year MBA prog from Spain.. check out www.ie.edu
IE is in the UK govts list of 50 schools that get a work permit for 1 yr in the UK. so u can always move to the UK after u complete ur school...

I suggest, have your future career line finalized..before u get into Bschool.. each school has renowned faculty in a particular sector.. so that can help u choose the right univ..

Ur GMAT looks good, for ur work exp.. u can always make up for it with the application essays, they give you a lot of scope to explain what you have done in ur professional life..

Go ahead and apply my friend..
u never know whats in store for you ?


Hi John,
Thnx for the input.
I had opted for templeton and st Johns.

In terms of sporting activities which one would be a better choice.. i have started to look at colleges in detail now.. but ur inputs wud be more reliable than my research. ( the fact that i choose templeton)


looking fwd to hear some more happenings at Oxford from you.


I saw some one ask about the college.... well for post grad studies the college dosen't play much role other than providing you with accommodation...and college accomm in oxford the cheapest....... and they provide you with a daily social life wiht each college having own pubs, tv room etc... so going to a richer college makes life more interesting and you want your college to be as close to the b school as possible...but sadly all college are 15 min cycle ride...which is not bad at all.........

don't leave college empty but chose christ church, corpus christi, university college, just put in one...if you get an admit into the course it is the univ's headache to get you a college incase your mentioned one is full....but the good ones are st hughs(too far though from b school) , keble, christ church( one of the most brit type with all dressed up butlers moving all around and the famous dining hall in the harry ptter movies)


Does anybody have any information about the University of Wales, MBA program?

Is it residential/ as in with teacers or is it online?
What are the entry requirements? Is GMAT required?
What is this business of program online facilitators? Are they like professors or what, me not understand people..
please enlighten!



thans man for so many praise.. but i am only helping bcoz i was also lie u 1 yr before,

and for u doing ma or msc from a grade school ,,, its excellent if u can afford these,, but its really going to hard if u do jo side by side,,

and for placement ... its not guarentee,, that if u hav don it form A grade the plcement,,, cos over here loo for past background,, other activities ,, and score of min 60-70 %...

but if u are intelligent and foc then every1 here needs u,,,

but let me make u also aware of the graduate plecement that,, most of the banking and finance companies doesnt help for work permit afterwards , so be cautious,, as i had applied to 2-3 banks and they straightaway refuse for any assistance and also 2 banks had a criteria that u must hav an account in UK for at let 1 year,,, crazy eligibility.. but its all like this over here,,

but best 4 u,,, u got ex,,, and if good acedemic,, and from a grade,,, then the biz is urs,, and u will b in top...


He Pankaj,

thanks for guiding me yar...

Good to hear that someone is guiding us , by his own exp,...ALL the best buddy, u will definately get a GUd offer in UK...

He man, tell me one more thing,,,u have seen my profile ,,am i eligible for MA or MSA courses in Grade A colleges,,,,

And the most imp question is...

Will i get placements easily after doing my MA or MSC from grade A colleges, my ambitions are not very high, to earn a lot of money..

i just want to recover in an year or so as much as i have spent on my studies in UK.

Pls guide me as to is it loke whatever course u do from Grade A univ , u will be placed??????????
Also i have come to know that their are lot many banks in Uk, so it's always advisable to go for finance as a course in MBA or msc, so that u get easliy placedis IT SO


Hello guys,,,

I am Pankaj here,,, doing my MA int biz from leeds met uni, leeds 2005 -06..

those of you comming over here 2 uk,,, for study must first confirm that they are comming for study only and go 4 good uni,,, like LSE, oxford, cambridge or manchester...as you can get easy placements and if u r commming 2 b grade uni like leeds or cardiff , bradford, glasgow,,, then,, u hav to really struggle for a placement ove here bcaz of the work permit situation afterwards((mine problem now).

so go for good uni if u can afford it,,, and really u hav to do a lot of reading even in c grade uni,, better prepared with all the basic books of ur respective fields.. otherwise u hav to read those along with ur studies within 1 year and u cant learn anytihing extra,,and will not b in an advantage positon over others.

wish u all d best for ur choice of uni,,
