    Hello all. I am an international student who is doing a MSc in International Relations at Royal Holloway. My average is a decent 2:1 (65ish+) and I've got good extra curricular and professional experience but relatively low undergraduate grades. What do you think my chances are at getting into some of the upper tier schools for a masters in public policy? Thinking Kings, LSE, UCL & ICL? Thanks!

    Imperial do Public Policy?

    It does help. I've seen students go on to Ivy Leagues and Oxbridge after doing one Masters at a lower ranked university. I would imagine you would need to justify why doing a second masters (especially in a similar subject) would help.

    You also need to think about whether you can justify the second masters to the UKBA-check with the unis you're wanting to apply to.
