Kevin1990 Posted September 29, 2012 Share Posted September 29, 2012 Hi all, I am from the US and the time to apply to grad school is nearing for me & I was seriously considering applying to universities in the UK , due to the structure of their admissions process, cost, and way of doing things academically. I am interested in mainly IR/politics courses(particularly War Studies) and I am esp. interested in the universities of Nottingham & Glasgow due to this. I'm also applying for admissions to KCL's(which is actually my first choice) course on the field as well. However, in terms of the University of Nottingham & Glasgow I am facing a problem in the sense that they are both UK & Globally well ranked & have strong reputations in Europe(better then many US Ivy League Schools & programs) but not known at all back here in the U.S except by those who have studied in the UK. How big of a problem would this be if I were to get into & commit to courses at one of these universities, finish it, then come home & apply to positions with a degree from there? mean these universities are al members of the UK's Russell group(same grouping of Oxford & Cambridge) and are viewed by those familiar with the British University system as prime alternatives to the Oxbridge system. Thank you in advance for any replies I get! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
