I'm an American student studying philosophy, I have offers from UCL and Edinburgh and I'm trying to decide between the two. Politics are important to me and I'm leftist. I don't know the campuses but I know both cities well enough. Which will be more fun, which would be better in terms of prestige, what should I do?

well both universities can be considered prestigious and both places are vibrant and exciting cities. pesonally i'd pick Edinburgh as the people tend to be a lot more friendly and the city is gorgeous. i don't know anything about the politics course though, but i think Edinburgh has a Socialist society or something coz i was told about it when i went to the open day.

I would choose Edinburgh, definitely. It's a really nice uni, and it is more like the campus unis that are in the States, as opposed to UCL, which is more spread out. It's a pretty open place, but I don't think it is as political as places like Berkeley.

Let's not forget that Michael Howard, the leader of the Torries had studied Politics at Edinburgh. I would definitely go for Edinburgh.

Regards.

London is one of the world's major political centres, and has a big political scene from what Ive seen. The LSE is a massive centre for left wing politics (though not exclusively), and what with both unis being part of the university of London im sure ther would be intercollegiate involvement in the politics scene. Don't know whether you are a "leftist" in the left-wing "greenpeace" sense or properly "leftist" in the Stalinist sense, but Im sure London would offer you a niche in which you could feel comfortable! I'm sorry but I don't know anything about Edinburgh. If the American style campus thing is important you should probably have chosen somewhere like Nottingham or Warwick anywho!
