    Hi, I have applied to the following colleges for Masters in International Relations - LSE, SOAS, Sussex, Royal holloway london, Kings College london and Durham
    I have received an offer from Durham for MA IR (middle east)
    Im waiting for replies from other universities. Also, I am considering applying to University of Edinburgh for Masters in International Affairs. I need help choosing which between these also suggestions on other universities that offer good courses in IR.
    Considering finding a job immediately after studies is my main priority, which are the best choices?

    Of the universities you mentioned I think LSE and Durham (for the ME focus) are probably the best choices. Then all other options have pros and cons and it really depends on what you want to do afterwards (NGOs, IOs, diplomacy, journalism, PhD, consultancy, etc...) and what kind of concentration you would like (IR theory, development, regional focus, IPE/Econ)... So it's very hard to say you anything precise with the information you provided.

    Other top schools you might want to look at are: St Andrews, Essex, UCL

    Between Sussex and RHUL I'd say Sussex is stronger for IR...
