I am an English A level student and I am really interested in studying in the Netherlands... due to the high cost of University in the UK.
I have recently visited both University College Amsterdam and Utrecht University College (in the summer holiday, so very few students around). I liked them both, but thought UCU campus would suit me best.
I go top Grammar School in the UK and have 12 GCSEs all at A* and A. I will probably apply to Cambridge to read Social and Political Science as well as applying to uni in the Netherlands. I would like a career in the UN or an NGO so International Relations is a real interest.
AUC has an International Relations track and Peace Lab visits Kosovo, which is such an amazing course. However, UCU does not seem to offer International Relations so would I struggle to get on a Masters programme for IR without studying the subject or would geography and politics be valued?
Most people say forget the NL the Unis in the UK are so much better -but the league tables don't show that. I'm so confused!
Please advise me if you have studied at either AUC or UCU.

Sorry, I don't know much about this topic (just started looking into studying in NL myself), but have you considered Leiden University College in The Hague? It's a liberal arts and sciences school like AUC and UCU, but focuses more on International Relations (and similar topics).
