    Warwick is so better than UCL and LSE :cool: In fact, it beats Oxbridge too!

    I'm not biased at all.

    Personally, yes, by a long way. I choose a hard Warwick insurance instead of an easy LSE offer. But in terms of what's better, LSE beats Warwick.

    I'd say for quality it'd be:
    LSE
    Warwick
    UCL
    Nottingham
    York

    For research the difference is more marked, but for undergrad LSE and Warwick are very close. Maybe not in reputation, but Warwick's course has come on a lot, whereas LSE rests on how hard it is to get in and how hard the exams are, the teaching isn't any better than Warwick, from what I've seen.

    lol i had to say it simply cos im spending the next three years down there!

    as for ucl, i would have chosen it if i got in but simply cos its in london no other reason, thats the only factor separating it from warwick.

    2.Warwick/UCL
    3.Nottingham/Bath/York
    4.Bristol/Durham

    we 1 and 2 correct in my opinon but the rest like this:

    1.LSE (+Oxbridge)
    2.Warwick/UCL
    3.Nottingham
    4.Bristol/Durham/Bath/York


    (considers rep, league table performance, difficulty to get an offer )

    Actually I feel the institutions that make a noticeable difference when applying for a job (esp. from an intl. perspective) are LSE and Oxbridge and possibly UCL to a certain extent. All the others mentioned (all extremely good) are neither here nor there in terms of job prospects (relative to each other). For graduates from these universities other factors such as the degree class achieved, extracurricular activities, interpersonal skills etc. will make a graduate stand out and be in a position to compete with graduates from Oxbridge and LSE, who probably won't have to try quite as hard to be in the same position when they first enter the job market or apply for further education.

    Hmm...i wouldnt have thaught the uni woudnt have mattered too much when it comes to employment (assuming the uni is top 20 and u have a 2.1. or 1st)?
    But manchester is ranked highly on employment so perhaps it should be considered as atleast a top 10.

    4)Notts/Warwick
    5)York/Bath/Bristol/etc
    6)Manchester/Birmingam/Essex/QMW/etc

    I personally dont rate Essex for Economics. UCL content in the first cover Essex 1st + 2nd year, so how can Essex be up there with the top for Economics. They also have rubbish employer links.

    QMW i do rate for content. their Econ degree i s very similar content to UCL Econ degree.

    SOAS- they were 40 something in last years times ranking i think. But you cant always trust league tables. Some of the Quality assurance evaulations were carried out 4 years ago.
