I hold an offer for an MA International Relations course at King's College London and MSc International Relations at the University of Edinburgh. I've been thinking about which one to accept and have no idea which to choose.

I have BA in politics and my honor thesis was about international law and the other thesis was about conflict in the middle east. I haven't decided on which subdiscipline to take either. I prefer conflicts / security / international law studies.

Please share your experiences at both programmes. Thank you so much.

KCL more networking opportunities and you can attend job interviews in London easily, plus it also has somewhat of a prestigious war studies department (maybe a little inflated tho). social side may suffer being in London with the cost of living and so many international students.
Edinburgh great Scottish uni with a high qs ranking, a lovely historic city, lots of international students, cheaper cost of living, and a similar level of prestige to KCL at least in my opinion.

all that being said I would personally go to Edinburgh.

Thank you for replying!
I've calculated my whole year expenses and it costs £13000 more if I choose KCL. That really makes me hesitate.
Plus I've never been to UK, it's not easy for me to picture the life in both cities.

personally i would rather be a student in the city of Edinburgh (cost of living), than a student in London and like i said both universities have a similar level of prestige/employment prospects. I guess if you are looking for a job in London, Kings may be useful for interviews and networking etc.
