How important is graduate school reputation? I can't decide between MA Public Policy at KCL or MSc International Public Policy at QMUL. I prefer the modules at QMUL but KCL is a better school overall (better graduate employment record). I would appreciate some insight! (I'm Canadian).

They're both good universities and it's completely up to you depending on what you would prefer but personally I'd pick Kings because of their overall reputation nationally and internationally.

Thank you for your reply!! Also, what is the main difference between MSc vs MA in the UK? In Canada usually all social sciences masters fall under MA.

No worries! And I'm not completely sure on this but I think an MA stands for a Master of Arts qualification whereas an MSc is a Master of Science. It's just a matter of which department you'd like to be associated with. for e.g If your undergrad degree was a science based one, go for the MSc

Mine was a BA (Bachelor of Arts). It seems there is little difference between the two. I appreciate your help!
