Security studies: KCL vs UCL

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I have received an offer from King's (MA intelligence and international security), but haven't heard yet from UCL (security studies). As my offer from King's is set to expire soon, I was wondering if you could provide me with some info/insight of the two programmes and respective departments, so that I could decide whether or not waiting for UCL would be worthy. I have read that King's War studies department is actually quite good, but also that UCL looks nicer on your CV, so I am really stuck.
    Could you help me? Thank you all in advance!

    If you're intending to work in the field of your masters, UCL will not necessarily "look nicer" - any prospective employer in this field will know the high standing in which KCL is held.

    Agree with the poster above. King's War Studies department is world-renowned and a central body within research of the field.
