    Ok so I have received unconditional offers to study :

    1)Social Policy with Government at LSE
    2)Politics at Kings College London
    And waiting to hear on
    3) Politics , Sociology and Eastern European Studies at UCL

    I'm torn between all 3 courses can people who study these courses tell me what they think about each course? I like debating , British politics , post war history, philosophy and global politics. Can people advise me which course is best?

    Thanks ,

    UCL will probably have less British politics because of the course you've chosen.

    Besides that, the rest will have plenty of the components you've listed.

    If you want debating, I'd recommend joining the relevant society at uni, such as politics, debate or philosphy societies.

    What do you want to do in the future?

    Hi thanks for this reply, I want to enter public service. I get the impression LSE is best for carrer prospects in this field but do you have any idea on the main differences between politics at kings and social policy/gov at LSE? In terms of subjects and working styles

    Also do you know what the politics societies etc are like at these uni's e.g. Which has the best?

    Thanks

    All three will have very good societies. The best thing to do is create a table of the specification in each course - put a star next to the topics you are really excited to study, and a line through the ones which are less so and see what comes out top according to your interests

    Well, if prestige/reputation of uni does happen to be a factor in public service, LSE would win.

    Government = Politics for LSE. Only difference between King's is that you'll focus more on social politics more than other aspects of policy; you'll still have great knowledge about the other aspects but they'll naturally be geared towards social.

    I'd imagine all their societies are good, but maybe research that aspect use to be sure.
