Royal Holloway Digital Documenty MA or UCL Ethnographic & Documentary Film MA

I am American and looking to get my MA in documentary in the UK, specifically London. Both Royal Holloway and UCL's programs seem very good. They both are taught by professional filmmakers and I would get a lot of hands on experience, like making my own documentaries. UCL seems to have a prestige that goes along with the name, that is why my English friends tell me anyway. Does that matter so much with a documentary degree? like would BBC or Nat Geo be more likely to hire me if I got an MA from UCL vs Royal Holloway. UCL is also about 28000 pounds and RH is about 18000. I'm wondering why UCL is 10000 pounds more expensive.

I was wondering if anyone on here has done the MA with either of these universities and could share what their experience was like.
