Yes they can, yes they do.
A UCL degree in the UK is as prestigious (or indeed more so) than those obtained from any other uni, save perhaps oxbridge.

It depends in the subject.
For my course of study, law, it is.

It was an unorthodox phrase construction.

Perhaps it should have read:

A UCL degree is as prestigious (or indeed more so) in the UK as those obtained from any other uni, save perhaps oxbridge.

It was to distinguish the prestigiousness of a degree on a national and international basis.

theres not much in it between UCL and LSE for law. Imperial doesnt even do law. LSE still has a better name than UCL, generally speaking.

LSE has a better name internationally.
And even then, the difference is usually overstated.

Nationally, there is no difference. If anything, UCL has a better reputation due to non academic factors (alumni in the public eye and a reputatation for being more sociable).

yeh you are probably right - the difference is negligable, but still LSE edges it on rep. If things like being more sociable counted then Oxbridge would not be on top (somewhere like London Met might claim to be top).

Ah yes. My milkman the other day was telling me how legendary UCL's social life is. And when I chat up birds they always ask why I didn't go to UCL as UCL's alumni - Ricky Gravis and Coldplay - are always in the spotlight. :rolleyes:

UCL, Manchster, Nottingham and Cardiff would probably be in the top 5.

But yeh.
In terms of teaching quality and resources, the two unis are the same (ignoring UCL being higher than LSE in the Times league tables).

LSE is better especailly in terms of resources. The 2 unis are far from being the same.

That was based on external factors only.
And being on the Tottenham Court Road and 15 mins walk from covent garden, UCL has nothing to envy any university (practically).

The fact you have a choice of 15 chinese take aways is not indicative of a great social life. :rolleyes:

PD: Well at least UCL has better social life
RL: No. See this handy table.
