    Hello everyone,
    I was wondering if Kingston Business school is a nice school for pursuing Msc in International Business?

    Definitely not.

    For business, look at Warwick, lse, ucl, Cambridge, Durham, Bristol, Exeter, bath and the London business school.

    Chances are that they're not at that level of achievement.

    To be honest, if they're on 2:1, I would tell them to bang in apps for half those. Stand an OK chance of getting in.

    True, gave you a rep.

    Then I would say politely. Don’t waste your time 👍

    Aye, Durham, Exeter and a couple of others don't seem to be that tough.

    But then again... well... who knows what their background is

    Indeed, even though I'd still think that Durham would be affordable to someone who has enough funding to pursue any business-related master's in the first place. It's LBS/Judge that are the pocket-emptiers

    To be fair Exeter and Durham might be a few grand more expensive, but you'd save that on living costs and probably scholarships.

    Kingston is £15k for an international. Durham and Exeter are £20k. Not an eyewatering difference but might be enough I guess.

    I am in my final year of my undergrad degree and getting required grades for a 2:1 degree. I quite liked the atmosphere at Kingston so was wondering whether I should continue or not?

    Are you currently at Kingston then?

    It's not uncommon to change university between undergrad and masters so you get a wider experience, and indeed potential business network.

    Maybe have a look at some more well-known London universities if you want to stay in the area.

    Edit: also have a look in this forum...
