ucl vs imperial watch

    • Thread Starter


    i ve been accepted at ucl for econ&stats and at imperial college for maths.
    I really don t know what to do.
    Please help me.
    P.S I would like to find a job after my degree in a bank or in the banking sector

    Both Universities are very good and very close to each other, so I wouldn't say one is particularly better/worse than the other.

    Have you been to any open days for them?


    As has been said pretty similar. However work load at Imp is usually higher than UCL, and from what I know UCL economics module selection can be done quite sneakily. My basic point being looking to the long term, you might have more free time at UCL to get involved with some Soc event and I would personally say the course is easier more chance of a 1st. Both are more likely to distinguish you when you come to applications for banking roles.

    I would go to open days, the universities have a very different feel.
