I have an offer to study politics and international relations at UCL and an offer at McGill arts to study economics and politics. I’m not too sure what I want to study for my masters but I definitely want to keep my options open. Which course and which university will permit me to do that ? Ps: I’m french and going to McGill would be much much cheaper

If I were you I would probably go for McGill (unless your really prefer UCL's London location). In my opinion, McGill and UCL have roughly the same reputation but I would choose McGill because:
- it is cheaper
- of the programme. When studying politics and economics, you will definitely also study international relations while having deep knowledge of economics. But if you only study politics and international relations then your knowledge of economics will be much more superificial.

But honestly both options are great and both will allow you to do a wide variety of master programmes so you can't really go wrong with either of them.

Thank you so much for the response! It really helped me make my decision, McGill is probably the best option for me
