I am an offer-holder for P&E at UCL. I would definitely like to study Philosophy and Economics, and I have to decide between a pretty mediocre uni in Germany (Bayreuth, only one that offers P&E) and UCL.
I want to go to an excellent graduate school - maybe even get a PhD at a prestigious uni. My concern is that going to the German uni won't allow me to get into great universities simply because it is lacking international reputation. But if I go to UCL, I won't be able to get excellent grades since I am not a native speaker, which will be especially challening in philosophy.
So my question is - is it better to go to a mediocre uni and get very good grades or should I rather go to UCL and probably receive average grades? For both graduate school and career prospects.
On a sidenote - how's social life at UCL? Can anyone comment on the workload for P&E at UCL?
But going to get a U!
