From your offers its between Warwick and Imperial. It depends on what you want to do after university. If you work in the city, i recommend Imperial as it is so well known and reputable. Warwick is great and i am decieding between Economics at Nottingham UCl or warwick. its really hard to choose isnt it?!
I would recommend Imperial though Warwick is also VERY reputable and if you do not want to stay in london then i dont think going to warwick will hinder you that much but bear in mind imperial is world famous and you are very lucky(/clever!) to get an offer.

dude, go to imperial! It's got an amazing reputation and two of my friends are going there. Plus london's more fun. But warwick is also very good so go there if you disliked imperial. There's no point going somehwere you don't like but that has a superior reputation.

I think imperial may also have links to american universities. And bear in mind if you do a postgrad or go for a competitive job a first/2:1 from imperial is going to look marginally more impressive than the same from Warwick. I know in terms of academic research the two departments are very similar but imperial's got the brand name.

Not York. Its the only university I was warned away from by the maths department at school. Apparently its not all that.

If you want to live in London, choose Imperial. If you don't, choose Warwick. Both have very strong reputations, so I would advise you go to whichever you're likely enjoy more.

I've never heard that before. Why exactly is it 'not all that'?

I don't remember, I think maybe it just doesn't have such a good reputation for maths.

York is famed for its english, history and music departments. And maybe some other arts departments too. It is probably not a maths university. Bath, however, is.

KCL and maths is not that great a partnership either. Sounds like you've decided, it's warwick or imperial
