    Been absolutely tearing my hair out on this one for a few weeks now. I have offers for both of these courses and no idea which one to go for. There's virtually nothing in it. Both meet my London requirement and both are around the same price.

    I like both courses for very different reasons and both UCL and KCL are attractive to me. I like KCL's focus on traditional security matters but I like UCL's fusion of academia with policy analysis. From what I can tell it's the age old uni versus department debate - UCL is better than KCL as an institution but the War Studies department at KCL is world renowned as Security/International studies centre.

    My ambitions are to work in the international organisation/diplomacy sector. Both have excellent links as far as I am aware.

    Objective advice would be very much appreciated!!!

    Hey Charlotte,

    Well, actually got accepted by LSE last moment so I am going with them in the end as it was my fav choice However, had I not received an offer from LSE I was definitely going to pick UCL, not only for its higher reputation but also because I have heard the IPP course is very good. Hope that helps!
