  1. hello I have been practicing law for the last five years at a commercial law firm and I am now switching over to the development side with an interest in helping others to make a change. I have applied for various masters courses as I am not yet certain which area I would like to focus on. I have received offers from:- 1. Kings College of London Msc Disasters, Adaptation and Development http://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/postgradu...nt-ma-msc.aspx Initially i applied to this course as they have a 3-6 month internship. Which i thought would be good for networking. Also the element of environment and development is becoming more important as years go by and natural resources are depleted (in my view).The more i read the course description it seems a bit too environment based and less on development. I am not sure if I will completely enjoy this course. Pros: London based network, Reputation of university Cons: less development and more environment, geography?! I made a second application for the Msc. Leadership and Development course (yet to hear back from them). Which seems less exam based and more course work. Also deals with more management issues which may be what I am looking at.http://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/postgradu...pment-msc.aspx Pros: Essay based rather than exam based, more development 2. University of WarwickLLM International Development law and Human Rightshttp://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/law/current/pg/modules/ I like the fact that it has the law element in it so I won't lose out on my legal knowledge. However the downside is that living in coventry (Lemington spa) may be a tad bit boring as compared to London. Also I understand Masters degree is where one makes networks so by virtue of studying in one of the universities in London the network will be larger. Also now being a mature student I don't think i really want a campus based experience as i already had this for my undergraduate experience. But saying that it may be nice and quiet place to study. Pro: Essay based rather than exam based, Legal course Con: Campus, North Location and network 3. University of Surrey Msc Sustainable Development http://www.surrey.ac.uk/postgraduate...le-developmentI noticed university of surrey was ranked highly however I don't think many people have heard or think highly of the university just yet.Pros: sustainable development coursecons: campus based, recognition of universityI am yet to hear back from:1. Soas: Msc Development Studies 2. UCL: Msc. Social Development Practice 3. Kings: Msc. Leadership and Development course I applied to the Amani Institute for their post graduate in social innovation management. However I am not too sure about doing the course as it is not a substitute for a masters and I haven't heard very much about it.http://amaniinstitute.org/programs/p...ion-management Feel free to have a look at the descriptions and give me your thoughts. I am an international student and would appreciate your views and if you have heard anything good or bad about the respective courses. I am leaning towards KCL but just a bit worried about the course being less development and more geography
