    Hi there,

    Just got my offers and I'd really appreciate some help and guidance about which uni to choose!

    My offers are:

    SOAS - Politics & Economics - A A A
    Kings - European Studies (Spanish pathway) - A A B (with A in Spanish)
    Birmingham - International Relations - A B B

    I know Kings has a better worldwide reputation, but that's more for medicine, right?

    The Kings offer is lower, does that mean the course has less demand and is less prestigious?

    Which university and course are better overall in terms of employment prospects? I want to go into the financial services sector, and wanted a degree that showed I have a bit of edge and something different, hence these options.

    Not really interested to go to Birmingham as I want to stay in London.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
