Main factors for a Master's degree

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys!

    So, basically, I am going to start my Bsc in Philosophy, Politics and Economics next October. However, I am having a hard time choosing between Warwick and UCL, for both Unis have pros and cons (better worldwide reputation for UCL, more flexible course for Warwick, etc.)

    My objective is to pursue a Master's Degree in the line of PPE matters (Political Economy, Politics, Economics of Development, etc.) in a very good Uni (the likes of the LSE / Cambridge in the UK or Princeton / Stanford in the US). Thus, my main concern is the credibility of the course for graduate studies. I know that I may sound like a fool in front of such heights, but, ceteris paribus, what Uni would give me the best shot to that kind of Master?

    And what, according to your knowledge, are the other main factors to be competitive for a Master?
