kcl or ucl

Hi, I am an international student and currently choosing what course to go for: I got offers from kings for politics philosophy and economics, and for ucl for politics and international relations. I see that UCL is ranked higher but maybe for more scientific subjects? what would you suggest?

Hey, I have heard many things about UCL, but you’re right, it’s more scientific.

I would say KCL is more chill, the people are great and the nightlife is amazing. UCL has a snob value though, so you could take that into account when looking for jobs after your degree. However, both are in London, and fairly close to each other, so I personally don’t think it would make a significant difference, but that is up to you to decide. Both have great facilities and great teaching.

I would say as your courses in both unis are different, look at the course structure and see which one you are more drawn to. Hope this helps

Hey ! I also got an offer for Politics and IR at UCL but ngl the course structure looked a bit boring to me after all so I didn't firm the offer. I would definitely recommend looking which program structure fits you the most, and looks more interesting to you. And I might be a bit biased as I firmed Kings, but it's ranked a bit higher for social sciences and humanities (you'll have to check the stats tho because i've heard this from a random guy on reddit lol)
