Programs Which Master's programme is better?

I was recently accepted into two master's programs. One is the two-year track Theoretical Physics in The Master's programme Physics and Astronomy, a joint degree with Universiteit of Amsterdam. The other is the Master of Science Programme (MSc) in Physics track "quantum Physics" of the university of Copenhagen. I'm not sure which project I should choose. I prefer the university of Amsterdam, but it seems that this project is associated with Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and the website says that some classes are held at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. It seems that the two schools are far apart, and I'm worried about the trouble it might cause. Has anyone finished this programme? The official site does not show the location of any course.

Since you have not received any response, I would recommend that you contact a representative at the University of Amsterdam and voice your concerns about scheduling and whether that unduly limits your course selection. It would be odd for a university to setup a program that's logistically not viable; i.e., setting up back-to-back classes at two different locations with insufficient travel time.

In the Netherlands, nothing can be far apart from anything else. Let alone in Amsterdam -- a village with 1/30 of the number of inhabitants of Shanghai. Look at the map.
