    Hello all,
    I am an American trenching across the pond for the 2018-2019 school semester. I’ll be pursuing my Master’s. I’ve gotten my offers already now it’s just deciding where to go. I’ll be doing international relations MA but am stuck between Durham and Manchester. From my brief research, I see Durham is nationally prestigious but it isn’t really known outside of the U.K.; while Manchester is somewhat mediocre in the national rankings but internationally they are really high ranked. I imagine my career to take off in England because of my boyfriend but am worried about coming back to America and not have my degree hold as a high regard (if I do choose Durham). Also feel that Manchester is better for networking but overall I am more in love with Durham. Just worried that I’ll be making the wrong choice for my career
    Many thanks x
