I want to do a PhD in psychology from Canada and I was wondering if a degree in neuroscience from king's college London will improve my chances of getting in? Because it's REALLY expensive for international students and I'm worried if it's worth it.

KCL will provide a better education than most other unis. This will therefore make you a better candidate. The reputation of KCL will also be very helpful.

I'm confused why you are spending only £3000 there? Was there a zero missing? Is this a masters or an undergraduate degree you are considering?

In any case it's hard to say how much a degree from KCL will help with pursuing a PhD in another country. In the UK KCL does have a quite strong reputation in psychology, neuroscience and psychiatry as I understand, and I would imagine some of their work would be known internationally; how much of it, I'm not sure.

If it's an undergraduate degree though then this might be less "valuable" than a masters as you are not likely to be doing as much graduate level research with those researchers (if any), which is probably what would "make the difference" for a PhD programme in another country.

It is a master's degree, but I'm still worried about the covid restrictions rn. Like it's probably not worth flying to the UK if classes are going to be online and idk what the job situation is like for international students rn. I had heard some horror stories last year.
