King's College London vs University of Bristol

which of these is better, in terms of quality of education, prestige, career prospects, city, and social life?

Political Economy BA/BSc - King's College London
Economics and Politics with Study Abroad BSc - University of Bristol

Not sure what career I want to pursue yet, but interested in intelligence, civil service, data/business/risk analyst roles, UN, tech, or maybe law.
