    Hi everyone!

    I'm a Egyptian-British student and have recently graduated in Politics from a uni in Egypt (with a dual degree from a UK uni) and I'm currently looking into PG study in the UK. My interests are in globalisation, human rights, IPE. So I'm looking for somewhere where I can study those and also a uni which is reputable. The options I'm considering are:

    Nottingham Uni: Social and Global Justice MA
    Manchester: Politics MA
    Southampton: Global Politics MSc
    Warwick: International Relations MA
    Glasgow: Human Rights and International Politics MSc / International Relations MSc

    The LSE Global Politics MSc is another option, but I'm generally pessimistic of getting accepted or being able to afford London.

    So any suggestions, advice, warnings at all from anyone would be most helpful and welcome

    I have a good 2:1 Hons degree and I'm currently doing an internship for an NGO in Cairo, so some work experience as well, which I guess can help.

    Would you say those options are pretty similar? Or is any one better than the other etc?

    PPE combines philosophy and economics together with politics to understand the social and human world around us, plus it is alot more enriching if not rewarding than most politics degrees. Its tough to get into though, but I would say its definetly worth it... but your other options appear to be good choices as they are.

    Good Luck!

    This is for a masters. There is no PPE masters at Oxford.

    Might be worth checking out the Centre for Applied Human Rights/Post-war Reconstruction and Development Unit at the Uni of York. Not on your list I know, so you may have ruled it out already, but their courses fit your interests, it's a good uni and living costs are much cheaper than London.

    I've just looked at the York programme, and it seems very good. Are you or did you study that at York?

    Unfortunately not. I'm sure all that gold would've come in handy in paying for tuition fees

    Sorry, another question; what sort of reputation do Southampton, Glasgow and Nottingham have in the social sciences/politics? Southampton doesn't seem to get much mention at all for anything but their Global Politics course seems pretty good.

    Glasgow is a big uni in a big city so it should be pretty sought after, no?
