    So I have offers to read Economics at Lancaster and Surrey and am now deciding which one to select as my firm choice.

    Skepticism about league tables aside, Surrey is ranked higher for Economics but Lancaster is ranked higher overall, with both institutions placing relatively close to each other in both tables (according to The Guardian). Knowing however that outside the top 5 these rankings can be volatile, I begin to lean towards Lancaster as its Management School is world renowned, well accredited and seemed very friendly when I visited. But looking at Which? university guide, the student impression of the course seems to be a bit higher at Surrey and there does seem to be a slightly larger choice of 3rd year options and higher employment rate.

    Outside of this, the universities are very equal in terms of campus, area, placements, facilities etc. Therefore in the long run, when both are so equal, do you go for the one better overall, or the one which could be slightly better for your course? Any advice or personal experience of Economics at these universities would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
