Default Maastricht University

I've been offered a place in Maastricht University's double MSc program in Public Policy and Human Development with the United Nations University. I have, however, also been offered a place in Warwick's MA in Public Policy course. Bearing in mind that my longer term goal involves policy research in Singapore, which path do you think I should choose?

Also, the course in Maastricht has the opportunity to intern with the UN. Can anyone advise if they would pick the more branded university (Warwick), or the lesser branded course with the more attractive internship, UN and all (Maastricht)?

Intern at UN doing what? Paperboy like job then go with Warwick. What you get to do at UN and the recommendations from big ppl at UN will be more useful IMHO.

my vote goes for Maastricht.
anyway, why so keen to do policy research in singapore? think you'll end up very disillusioned.
