I applied for BA Politics at KCL and they responded saying that they were unable to offer me a place "due to the competitive nature of this course", however they made me an offer for a place on the European Politics course.
I was wondering whether any other people had been given an alternative offer? Also whether the European Politics course is as good a regular politics?

It is pretty self-explanatory; European Politics is mostly focused on one area of Politics. If that was what you wanted to specialise in anyway, then go ahead and take up the offer, but otherwise don't feel pressured to do so.

I had the exact same thing! I applied for Politics, which then got changed to Euro Politics. I emailed them with an alternative course that I would rather study and they gave me an offer for the course I asked for. But make sure to justify your interest in the email!

Hi i actually just got the same email too! I had applied for Political Economy and got into European Politics, did they mention anything about a conditional offer to you?

Hey guys! KCL offered me European Studies or European Politics instead of Political Economy. Are you thinking about firming EP?

I've had the same, and am considering it because I think the the content seems very interesting. I really appreciate the inter-disciplinary approach.

Sure, it's a new course, but I'm interested in how it has been formed in order to be relevant to a European context. I really recommend reading the descriptions here: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/artshums/depts/...g/europol.aspx

Hi! After being offered another course, I too was thinking about asking them to consider me for an alternative course. However I hesitate because the deadline of January is already past. How exactly did you proceed and what would be your advice?
