    I have a degree from York (high 2:1) and have just been accepted to Durham and St Andrew's, I also have applications for Imperial and Edinburgh. Which of this institutions would you think is best for studying maths? I've had a look at a few tables like the Times and the Guardian and the placings of these universities all vary greatly. Which one do you think would be most attractive for future employers?

    Hello,

    Probably Imperial if you want a more international known school. I am from Scandinavia (live in Norway but I am swedish) and Imperial has a much bigger reputation compared to St. Andrews and Durham.

    Furthermore, Imperial's math departement is very much respected and reputable.

    Not trying to be biased and I am sure Durham and St. Andrews are great schools, but as a foreigner I've mainly heard about Imperial. Furthermore Imperial is located in London which should be an advantage with the proximity to the industry I suppose.

    Think Imperial probably is the best known internationally like you say, and I want to work abroad, don't think St Andrews and Durham are too far behind though, quality of the courses will probably be quite similar.
