    I constantly here of how much work oxbridge stundets do, in fact in the Wealth of Nations (intro) Smith criticises this. But what i want to know if this is also standard practice at LSE.
    Also how mathematical is LSE's course, obviously it is more quantitative than Cambridge's as Mathematics is a pre-requisite (also true for most cambridge colleges).
    ANy insight guys?

    I would assume that LSE work your fairly hard considering their high reputation - it would be no good for them if their students came out with worthless degrees.

    I'd just like to add, that part of the reason Oxbridge students have to work so hard is because of the 8-week terms. Over a tear, Oxbridge students will probably spent 2 and a half months less time at uni than somebody else, so there is a lot more work to cram in.

    LSE and Cambridge Are both excellent for Economics. Cambridge would be better if ur applying for an u.graduate degree and LSE would be better if ur applying for p.graduate.
    Cambrdige's course is not as mathematical as lse (some colleges like downing are trying to add more maths into it though....) Cambrdige's course is not as flexible as LSE....
    Reputationwise...they r both v.good but in this country Cambridge is still CAMBRDIGE but in other countries ...specially U.S. LSE is well recognized.
    LSE's course won't be any "easier" than cambridges but they r both top places for economics and they'll work u out.
