You do know there are countries East of the UK?(Original post by crunchychips)
It depends what exactly you mean by prestige. The "common" person in the USA won't have heard of LSE or Warwick. Someone hiring in banks who knows about UK unis probably won't mind. Someone hiring in a big firm who doesn't know much might have heard of LSE, but I doubt the edge is big in favour of LSE (I think only Oxbridge have a real edge). A top university will percieve Warwick as far better when someone will apply for a Math PhD. Etc.Etc.
It seems a bit like hair splitting. Yes, if we add everything up, LSE might have a slight edge, but nowhere near the prestige that Oxbridge has.
Do agree with you, in fact I'd put Warwick above Oxford for maths.(Original post by crunchychips)
A joke? COWI (Cambridge, Oxford, Warwick, Imperial) are the best unis for math in the UK, there is no controversy about that. As a Warwick student, I will of course say that it is better than our rivals, but that is more tongue-in-cheek than anything else. For math, we are all more or less equal.
What do you study if I may inquire?
Which unis have sent theirs?
