    I've got unconditional offers from Kent (Politics & International Relations with Year abroad in Japan), Essex (Politics with Year abroad) and UEA (Politics with foundation year).

    I think Kent if the course and university I want to go for, just want to make sure I'm making the correct decision.

    It would be between Kent and Essex.

    What are people's thoughts? What to current students make of the course?

    Cheers.

    I would say all three choices are legitimate. Given that you have disregarded UEA I will assume you desire the year abroad. Essex is known for being quite good for politics (and sociology) and Kent is a reasonable choice. If you think you want to go to Kent then do so - Essex certainly isn't sufficiently better (if better at all) to make that decision a poor one academically. If you've made up your mind then go for it!

    Well I decided against UEA as its a foundation year course, plus when I visited for applicant day I didn't really like it particularly not really sure why, just didn't get the right vibe really.

    And yes I think it would be good to do a year abroad, also the course at Kent is more what i want to do, Politics and International Relations rather than straight Politics (although I'm sure a lot of it is just different course name!)

    Go for Kent it is clear that is where you want to go and is probably marginally the better university of the 2

    Thanks for replies. Went with my gut feeling and what I knew all along really and firmed my offer from Kent of Politics and International Relations with a year abroad in Japan.

    Looking forward to September now!
