    Hi,

    I've applied to Terrorism, Security & Society MA at KCL, but I'm now thinking that their Intelligence and International Security programme might better suit my post-uni aims and be more interesting overall.

    I would change around my personal statement a bit to make it more suited, but would it look bad if I kept some of the same paragraphs and generally the same structure/content?

    Would it be better to try to transfer closer to September next year instead of doing that second application? Does anyone know if this is easy?

    Thanks!

    If you can make a good case for applying to either program then go for it. What unis don't want to see is a generic application in which it's clear that little or no thought has gone into the PS and the applicant just wants to get in.

    Ok thanks!

    Upon further consideration of my statement I've been able to change it quite a bit anyway. It's just my discussion of my work experience that stays the same because it's applicable to both fields.
