Both have excellent reputation for Economics. Warwick's reputation as a university is narrower whilst UCL's reputation is over wider over more disciplines. Not easy to choose between the two on Economics reputation alone so you will have to find other issues to help you choose, like whether you will not dislike a city environment or a more quiet campus atmosphere, bearing in mind that living and studying in London can be an experience of a lifetime too.

UCL is better for Econs. Although just narrowly.

In regards to best reputation, UCL takes that hands down. It is a superior reputation locally and internationally.

The only other consideration that could swing you to pick Warwick is if you want a campus feel.

I've done my undergraduate in Warwick and my MSc in UCL. I say go for Warwick, there isn't one thing that UCL does better than Warwick. It's so much more organised and Warwick Business School is one of the best in the world. As someone who studied in both universities I say go to Warwick.

Warwick and UCL are the same in terms of academic rep, but Warwick is stronger for Econ.

Studying Economics in UCL in London would be like having your cake and eating it.

Recruitment prospects seem higher at UCL if you're looking to work in London. The only issue I have with UCL is maintenance costs, accommodation in the halls is VERY expensive and London in general is expensive. That being said, alongside the reputation UCL has a very good nightlife, community and all round experience.

In terms of Warwick Eco is slightly better there however there isn't much of a dramatic difference between them both.

Good luck on gaining a place!

there is absolutely no advantage being at ucl for recruitment as you put it, warwick has been voted number one in many categories for getting employed by the strongest organisations within london.

completely incorrect, warwick is better for econ, if you havent attended either uni i think you giving a wrong opinion is not beneficial. ucl locally isnt even close to being "hands down" better rep, internationally ucl is known for being in london hence a better rep, again absolutely nothing to suggest its better than warwick

Those who are blindly saying UCL "no comp", it is a stupid remark. Firstly, I rejected LSE and UCL for Warwick. Go look at the rankings, Warwick is always above UCL. Go look at the linkedin rankings. Warwick is above UCL. But the difference is by two or three places, so it doesn't mean anything. Warwick and UCL are the same. The only thing that makes UCL more known over the world is that it is in London. London. Central London. The city everyone is dying to come to. The world rankings are blind, they're based on where international students are most likely to go. Warwick and UCL are the same, even though Warwick is always above UCL.

Exactly
LSE over UCL and Warwick any day


Warwick is slightly better than UCL but
since we live in London with UCL we have
added advantage

World rankings are not stupid
More weightage is given to unis which
does medicine

look before you leap
