    Hi, I will most likely be doing poltical science in the fall at the university of Amsterdam (uva) for undergrad as it is the course that I like the best and has the most amount of freedom(as I can minor in gender studies). However, I am unaware of the UVAs reputation and would like to do a post grad in polisci at Oxbridge, lSE, or King. I was wondering if going to UVA would disadvantage me any way,or or if anyone is aware of the reputation? Would it be better for me to go to a U.K. uni?
    Thanks

    General university reputation becomes a smaller factor at postgraduate level and beyond. Just ensure you have the right supervisor and the right project (wherever that may be) - it is the quality of your work that will count most.

    UVA is certainly at the same level of some of the best Universities in the UK. But, most UK Unis do not choose their postgrad students on the basis of 'which Uni'. More important will be your research interests and two good academic references.

    As above.

    Also, be aware that Oxbridge, LSE and King's have very different approaches to their study of politics and international relations. It's not a given that any of them are good choices for you - if they don't suit your research interests or preferred theoretical approaches, they're not going to be much use.
