Warwicks course would still be pretty highly acclaimed though.

LSE, I've heard has the best joint course. But Warwick would still be pretty damn good .

LSE's course seems quite easy actually...i have had a look at their exam papers...some of the material that they cover in the 2nd year, we have covered them in our first year.

MA100 Mathematical Methods...is a Joke! It should be a course for people outside the maths department...not for Maths students...

I didnt like the course at Bristol, But the course at Nottingham (what i am doing) is tougher than the one at LSE, with more options.

Well...have a look at LSE's courses and see what u think....I think their standards are below other maths departments ( e.g. warwick) especially duringn the first year.

They dont offer that many courses...( they are begining to expand their maths department...they now have 15 full time lecturers...they use to have only 10 ).
Their main strength is in discrete mathematics which i dont think is the most exciting topic to study.....they are begining to move towards more intersting stuff but they are still behind places like Warwick and Imperial...

If you compare the LSE's Maths and Stats department with Imperial college's Maths dep u'll see they are about a 5th of the size of the Imperial's Maths department despite having an intake of around 150 students (acturial, Business Maths, Maths&eco).

the answer seems to be simple:
if you're looking to work with more mathematically minded students, and find maths the more interesting, warwick on balance is the place for you.
if you'd prefer to delve into economics further than maths, LSE is obviusly going to have a substantially better department for you.

personally i've gone with warwick, i'm looking forward to hitting the harder intake criteria. oh, and i don't really like the idea of going to uni in london.

i'm still waiting on a reply from bristol though...otherwise loughborough is my back up...

Welcome to TSR alexjryan.

You have revived quite an old thread!

A couple of people mention UCL: they only do Maths WITH Economics which is significantly different to a 50:50 joint degree. Economics & Stats is another possibility.

Anyway, I'm hoping for MORSE. Fingers crossed.

The Loughborough course I'm on now is a good one, and although not as good as Warwick/LSE, is still pretty datn good. And obviously going to a top ten Uni, doing 2 of the most difficult degree subjects combined, isn't going to be that different wherever you go! So Loughborough is definitely a good back-up, especially at ABB which isn't hard to get.
