KCL vs. Edinburgh

Hi! I recieved offer from both universities, and I am indecisive which offer to accept. I did research on the web and still cannot figure out which University has better reputation. I plan to specialize in European Law. I would be very grateful for any advice.

From what I know, Edinburgh has a better reputation. But instead of looking for very broad criteria, try to look at the professors at each university that teach European Law. See which school offers the line of research you would like to pursue.

I aplogies if this is stupid question, but where I can find information abou research quality? As far as i noticed, their web pages do not offer very detailed information

Look for the faculty and then do individual researches for professors. Check if there are is a center or research group dedicated to your area of interest, that kind of thing. Sometimes a professor who studies "European Law" will be focused on something entirely different from what you intend to research on, so that should help give a better idea of whether the faculty is interesting for your goals.
