Hi! I would like to receive an advice regarding the three aforementioned universities; specifically, in the public policy field.
After sending, a bit frenetically, applications, I received three offers. It was a bit of a surprise to me, as I did not expect it to work out at all. Now, I have to pick one, but I do not really know how to evaluate the different programmes, especially - for how superficial it might sound - in terms of future usefulness.
The three programmes are: MA Political Economy, KCL; MA Public Policy, Warwick; MSc Public Policy, UCL.
My thoughts so far:
Pros: the programme seems more versatile, and MAYBE it may offer a broader variety of professional opportunities (just a personal idea, don’t know if it is true).
Cons: London is expensive, and King’s appears to be the least renowned location of these three.
Pros: UCL. It is the most popular university, even internationally speaking; moreover, the programme seems to be very interesting.
Cons: London is expensive, and I have read on this site that UCL does not offer its best in this field (once again, I cannot tell whether it is true or not).
Pros: The least expensive one, and the programme quality should to be at the same level with the UCL one.
Cons: The various modules seem to be slightly less interesting than their UCL equivalents, and MAYBE London-based universities make it easier, and quicker, to find a job afterwards.
As I will have to take loans either way, I would like to make the best possible choice; therefore, any advice is very welcome!
Who do you think it is...
