KCL/Warwick or Melbourne/Sydney U watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am currently on my last year of IB, and I am an Australian citizen studying in Hong Kong.

    I have recently been conditionally offered a place in both Warwick and Kings college for law.

    Now obviously going to UK for me is going to be much more costly (by at least 4 times) but obtaining a JD in the U.K. will be much quicker (3 years) comparing to Australia (Melbourne and Sydney U only provide postgrad level law which means I'd need to take at least 5-6 years to get a JD, although it means I'd be obtaining 2 degrees in the end, which is also a factor of consideration)

    So I am just wondering which is better in terms of course structure and whether it is better to go to UK rather than Australia; are KCL and Warwick' career prospects and reputation enough to triumph over Melbourne/Sydney U that I should spend much more money to study in UK instead of Australia???

    Also, if I go to Melbourne U and Sydney U, what undergrad is best to compliment postgrad law??? Should I choose Arts, which is fairly easy to get into or something difficult in the beginning like Biomed???? Thanks

    Asking the same questions again and again in different forums isn't going to get you much further! With considering two different countries for your education you will have to weigh up finance and where it will come from. In terms of prospects and careers you need to think about whether training in one country will let you get a job in another or whether you will have to do exams or conversion courses. Where do you want to end up eventually?
