I've got accepted to Msc Global Politics at LSE and Msc International Public Policy at UCL.
I really dont know where to accept! They're both great courses...
LSE has a better reputation (although UCL is fantastic too!) but costs 12£k where as UCL costs 6£K... so if i go to LSE i'll have to get a bank loan cos they didnt offer me a graduate merit award.
so basically, in weighing the pro's and cons i really really cant make a decision. Any advice whatsoever will be appreciated...
I'm lookin to get a job ultimately for the UN, World Bank, Foreign office, defence department... something like that... don't know whether that helps..
Well, the decision all comes down to you. Normally you would do a course that you love and would enjoy doing. LSE and UCL and both great Unis. If finances is your main concern, then UCL would be a better choice but if you do not mind getting a loan then LSE would be the one. Personally, i do not fancy a bank loan. And if both courses appealed to me, then i would go for the offer at UCL.
I hope this helped. Feel free to tell me what you think.
I dont know if this helps, but I completed a MSc in the psychology department of UCL.
The university is just fantastic. The sheer fact of studying a postgrad degree there, opened many doors for me, including an immediate offer of an advertised ESRC PhD studentship.
I would go for UCL-but LSE is pretty good too!
Hey Jo-Jo.. I dont mind at all.
I'm just finishing my Bsc in Psychology predicted either a 1st or high 2;1. They dont often take cross-over students, but i've got work experience in the area and basically stated slot on my personal statement that it is def what i want ti do with my career. What are your qualifications? maybe i can help give you an idea of whether you've got a good chance?im sure you have though x
