Hi, just want to keep this brief:

-Edinburgh course looks great, would be starting French advanced, Politics alongside, possibility to pick up History as part of their 'third course' programme. Also get a year abroad, and the politics honours for third year (although with me taking a year abroad I'd have to do them in my fourth and final year) look like something I'd be really interested in.

-King's International Relations is definitely something I would find interesting, want to go into this field in future anyway, 'up and coming degree' etc. Course is 3 years, could probably do a law conversion course at the end and study a masters. Also, London is London and definitely the epicentre of British politics. Also lots of opportunities/better nightlife etc etc.

-Looked round Edinburgh three times now: at an open day, at an offer holder day and once just to visit the city. Have been to London numerous times but never looked round King's at an open/offer holder day.

-To make matters worse, I must decide by 6th May, but I go travelling next Tuesday for 2 months and have literally no time, except for Saturday, to visit London- half term = no staff to meet me there though.

Any advice/reasons why either uni is good/bad, reasons why either city is good/bad, opinions of the courses would be MASSIVELY appreciated!!!

Thank you

If you want to study French history, literature and culture alongside Politics then you only have one option, Edinburgh. If however you just want to learn the language and have a year abroad, then you KCL is still an option. KCL has a language centre where students can take evening courses, or you could include a French-language module into your IR degree. The Erasmus year abroad scheme allows all students to study abroad. Options include spending a year (or a term) at various universities in Paris, Lyon, Poitiers, Aix-en-Provence, Montreal and Quebec City.
