    Hi all. I've been accepted by development studies from Cambridge and LSE, as well as Public Policy and Development from Paris School of Economics. Now I feel it's very difficult to choose one from these three school. Personally I'd prefer PSE because of its rigorous curriculum and specialized faculties, but it is certainly not as well known as the other two globally. After graduation, I'm not sure if I will pursue a phd; I might go to international organization for work. I'd appreciate if I could get any advice.

    Pretty easy. Cambridge isn't good for people who want a broader style of education and have acceptances/offers from places like that. Also I wouldn't say it's the best university in the world

    In the past the program allows students choose Econ courses, but unfortunately they changed the policy. Development studies without economics is not very convincing

    This is in the postgrad forum so, actually, no

    Hm, I'd tend to agree with that assessment. Still, Cam and LSE have way higher global recognition and would probably be much better for international job hunting. Often just the fact of a degree or the name of the degree from a renowned university is (much) more important than exactly what modules you studied to get you an interview, unless you're aiming at a particularly technical job.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
