    hey guys i’m in a bit of a dilemma here. i’m an international student and haven’t really had time or money to go to open days for unis in the UK and i’m really torn between these two. the Pol/international relations course in LSE really appeals to me but i’m wondering whether it’s a good idea to switch it for Durham PPE since i’ve applied for PPE at other unis. if anyone’s wondering why i never applies for PPE at LSE it’s cuz i don’t meet the maths requirement. i don’t really have a sensing of what the courses are like/how life is in the two different unis beyond what is available online. if anyone could provide some insight into comparing the courses/unis i would greatly appreciate it

    Only you can work out what's best for you. Compare the courses, work and research opportunities, where grads end up, facilities, finance and cities. You will have to balance your personal statement with politics and international relations, economics and philosophy to make sure that it appeals to all the unis you're applying to as well. Have a look on Connect and filter by uni to find other students.
