Hi everyone,

I received an offer from KCL and QM as you can see in the title but don't know which one to choose, having a slight preference for KCL.
I'm an international student and don't really know how those universities are seen in your country, if you have any information on those courses (locations, reputation...) I would gladly take it especially the War Studies one.

Thanks a lot !

King's is definitely seen as 'more prestigious' than QMUL. In addition, the War Studies department at KCL is the best in the country.

I feel like although KCL is held at higher regard, International Relations seems like a more respectable degree course?

What do you want to work as OP?

Princepieman - How is 'War Studies' seen by employers? It's not a very common degree.

Pretty much this. KCL seems like a better uni but I don't think I have ever heard of war studies before. Although International Relations is a respectable degree. Although if you would enjoy war studies then maybe go for that.

War Studies is KCL's flagship department. It gives a good advantage for consulting, think tanks, diplomacy, politics, journalism, etc.

Take it.

War Studies, alongside Political Economy, make up two of the best courses available at KCL. Think of how LSE's flagship course is their Economics degree - these two are KCL's bread and butter.

You'll find tonnes of alumni amongst the highest realms in politics (both nationally and internationally), business and a myriad of other sectors. Don't write it off because it 'sounds funny', employers know of and respect the course.

Thanks a lot for replying. I decided to go for War Studies as KCL seems definitely as more highly regarded than QM, and War Studies being a course that is definitely interesting me.
