Hi. I'm taking philosophy in university.
Which of LSE , Edinburgh and Bristol should I choose?

(I know LSE offers a different kind of philosophy course, and I kind of like that too) However, I'm worried about the different types of people who will be studying at these universities which may affect my overall experience.

Do you enjoy city life?

LSE's course is great and has an excellent international reputation. But you must be able to finance your education, and cope with living in hectic London.

In your case, go for Edinburgh. If your offer is for Politics, Economics etc. I will recommend LSE.

I'm trying to make a similar decision too, but Law in my case. London vs beautiful Edinburgh?? :/ I mean London is beautiful too, but I really don't know...

From what I've heard (and since I'm an international student, what I've heard may not be true) the students at LSE tend to be more academically-focused, at least compared to the other London unis like UCL and KCL that tend to have a reputation of having a cosier environment, more social, etc. and LSE has a pretty big proportion of international students, something lik 50%, so it's up to you to decide what kind of experience you want to have.

Hi! I know it's been some time since you've posted this, but I'm in the same situation as an international student torn between Edinburgh and LSE, and I was wondering which university you ended up picking and why. Thanks in advance!

Have you made a decision? I am in the same position. I can’t decide.
