    Hi guys need some help here! The time to select my uni has come, I have unconditionals for LSE and York, however LSE is for Economics and Economic History and York is for straight Economics.

    LSE: econ and econ history
    York: econ

    I know LSE is the better uni but is econ and econ history as worth it/ reputable as Yorks straight econ?

    Not sure if the joint courses from LSE are as reputable..!
    Please help.

    Are you literally just going to uni to get a job, or does one of these courses interest you more?

    What is your aim after university? A high paying job in banking? If so, then go to LSE.

    If you want to go for the experience, the love of your subject, etc. and would prefer a quieter place like York, then go to York.

    You may be able to switch from Econ/Econ History to Economics at LSE after the first year subject to good grades.

    If you aren't interested in the history of economics, don't take that course.
