Warwick (PaIS) VS KCL (Political Economy)? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I've applied for Politics and International Studies at Warwick and Political Economy at King's College, London (from whom I've received an offer).

    Political economy is my favourite part of politics, and well, while KCL's course is clearly linked, Warwick has a cracking set of political economy modules that are probably better than KCL's.

    In short, help.

    Which would be a better option and why?

    Both a very well respected unis, it more so depends on what you want to do with your degree/what you want to study. If you know that political economy is all you want to study, and you know that the other modules wouldn't interest you at Warwick, go to King's. However, if you want a broader degree, ditch King's for Warwick. Both are good options.

    Which would be a better option and why?
    which of these you attend is going to have no bearing on your employment prospects and judging modules from the course listings is an inexact science.

    Whichever you choose, you are going to have to spend 3 years there, and it is here that you'll find important differences between Warwick and King's that can be reliably anticipated before arrival:

    • Do you want to study in the very centre of one of the world's great cities or on a greenfields site on the edge of one of the midlands' less prepossessing conurbations?
    • Can you afford to live in London?
    • Would you mind having a lengthy commute into college every day, and paying for it?
    • Would you enjoy a campus life that can be hugely convenient but as well a bit artificial?
Do you think parents should charge rent?
