    I'd choose the BEng at Warwick. If IB doesn't work out, a BEng will stand you a good stead to get a decent engineering job and Warwick puts you in a better position to get into IB than Notts.

    why you want to study Engineering at Warwick? why not economics? to me it seems much likely that you will get into IB. I suggest you do economics at following universities OXbridge(Economics and Management at oxford), LSE. UCL

    Warwick > UCL imo.

    Anyway, yeah warwick is AABb for straight econ. Although I would guess that most successful candidates would have AAA predictions.

    For Economics, Warwick is AAB. UCL is AAA.

    Both require A at Maths.

    And Warwick strikes me as the worst kind of farm out there. It's all concrete and 60s...

    I think the warwick campus is beautiful, modern and definitely not 'farm'. Some greenary is always nice. Although having studied there, the ducks from the nearby lake can piss you off in the mornings.

    Interesting point, was talking to a guy from goldman, he said that he'd put Warwick down as the top "non-LSE-oxbridge" uni in the country. Just passing on the info...

    Imperial comes over UCL and Warwick.

    And Warwick is relative to London, a farm.

    Yep, I asked about that and he specifically said it was better than UCL.

    "Warwick is consistently well placed in rankings of UK universities such as the The Sunday Times University Guide (6th place overall in 2005), The Times Good University Guide (8th), and The Guardian University Guide (8th place overall in 2006). Warwick, Oxford, Cambridge, LSE and Imperial College London are the only universities which have never been out of the Top 10 in the British league tables. Warwick is currently the best ranked university outside of London and Oxbridge, and the only multifaculty institution aside from Oxbridge to have never been out of the top ten."

    Notice how UCL isn't in there:cool:

    Anyway from my limited research I would say that Warwick and UCL is very equal. UCL may have a bit better overall rep but not enough to dismiss Warwick.

    Other factors than academic should be more important when choosing.

    If you looking at universities generally (not departments).
    I would say Oxbridge, Imperial/LSE, Warwick/UCL.
