I’m aiming to apply for politics at one of these two unis. Any advice on whether I should pick KCL or Durham?

I like both courses, slightly prefer the course content in Durham. However, KCL is in London which might offer better internship opportunities (and would be more convenient since I’m an international student)

Much appreciated for any help

Durham is a small and vey beautiful historic city. The Uni is one of the oldest in the UK and has a solid academic reputation.
The Uni is based on the 'college' system - old fashioned but some people like it.
KCL has a massive city centre campus, and London is busy, noisy, dirty, and expensive. You'll spend half your life on public transport. KCL wont get you any obvious advantages over Durham - or any other leading Law Dept.

Everyone wants something different from a Uni, but personally I'd go for smaller city - its an easier life and you will have a far greater sense of belonging.
