KCL vs UCL for Politics

I have offers from both KCL and UCL to study Politics. UCL has the better global rankings but KCL has the better Politics department (from what I've seen in League Tables), and I have no idea which one to firm. Does anyone have any advice on which to pick? Are they that different (i.e. should I just pick the one whose campus/vibe I liked better)? And do graduates from both courses have good career prospects?

Thank you :smile:

Hey, I got an offer from UCL and KCL too. I can easily understand what you feel if you can’t make a choice just choose the one you love the most, your favorite vibes or campus

i would say UCL for the international standing and slighty more employability but if you prefer the course/campus at KCL then dont let it stop you!

I got the same thing, UCL and Kings for IR and I can't decide
I've heard good and bad things about both, some people say Kings student life is better, but some others say its way worse, theyre all from different departments though.
I think both campuses have a very different feel, but you have to be ready for the london life.
Im doing the IB, and the course point totals aren't so bad for either of them, but UCL has a higher requirement than Kings, which says something.

I am going to try to get into contact with some Kings and UCL current students for IR to see what they say.
If anyone has advice on finding people willing to talk about their course let me know, since I've been getting 0 responses on the universities UniBuddy function.
