KCL v Exeter - Pros v Cons PLEASE

I cannot decide between KCL for Political Economy and Exeter for Economics and Politics. What would be best on my CV. I'd like some others' perspectives, not just on the course but on student life, employability, prestige etc. Thank you!

Hi sorry I can't really offer much advice, but I am basically in the same position rn. 😭 I'm stuck between KCL for Political Economy and Bristol for Economics and Politics. From what i've heard, KCL isn't the best in terms of social life as London is such a huge city, campuses/accom are spread out, international students don't tend to mix with home students, not to mention how expensive it is. It has also supposedly got really low student satisfaction as well. However, it appears to rank higher in both economics and politics and is a lot more internationally recognised.
I literally can't decide, and I am so stressed since the deadline is so soon. If you find out anything else that helps you to make a decision, please let me know!! Or if you have already firmed, how did you get to your decision? Good luck :smile:
