    Got offers to both, not sure which to choose...

    I got my undergrad at LSE (not in IR, but in another prestigious department) and I'm not sure if I should go back or try somewhere else. I know the LSE has a prestigious name, but I've already got that on my CV. I've heard there's bias against doing two degrees at the same uni, although I'm not sure if that's true if you change departments, or if the uni is top-tier like the LSE. In terms of career, I already have one, and both degrees would help me advance in it.

    So, all else being equal, which would you choose?

    I' have loved to have done war studies. perhaps ask those who do the career you wish to move into.

    That came across as so arrogant, I almost fainted.. my apologies to nit pick but you could easily just say it was in history or geography which would be far more useful in helping you with your question.

    Obvious statements are KCL offers the specialised war studies which could be a really beneficial in certain careers as IR would be more generic and useful for many different careers - government, diplomacy, international business.
