    Hi,
    I’ve gotten an offer from both KCL (BA International Relations) and University of Edinbrugh (MA International Relations and International Law) , really confused which uni to join. So I hope I could get some help in terms of selection depending upon course.
    Also, if possible could you suggest/do you have any experience with jobs and career related stuff after an undergraduate degree in International Relations?

    How do the courses compare? One obvious difference is the length of time to get a degree. If you don't have a career path in mind why did you pick this course?

    The one at KCL is of 3 years and UOE is 4 years. I do have an idea of what I want to do, I want to get into the field of diplomacy and work in NGOs, UN or similar organizations. All I wanted was a first hand experience for someone who is working in some similar place with a BA International Relations

    Yes that's what I was alluding to but there will be other differences too e.g in content and it's up to you to work it out. If you are worried about where grads end up look that up to.
