    I'm thinking of applying for sociology - which uni you think is the best for it?? LSE, Warwick, Birmingham, Cambridge (well, the problem with it is that SPS combines few subjects and I prefer learning more in depth)? Any other solutions? :confused:

    What's SPS? and I think if you can get into Sociology at Cambridge then you definetely won't have to worry about lack of depth.

    If you are looking at job prospects all of those unis are great, but LSE and Cambridge stand out. Plus LSE has quite a famous sociology teaching staff.
    But I suggest you visit them all and see where you can imagine enjoying the next 3-4 years.

    I think Warwick, Birmingham and Goldsmiths are supposed to be good at Sociology. I'm doing Sociology at LSE (Msc). I'm looking at Goldsmiths, LSE and Cambridge for PhD programmes.

    I remember when i was doing Sociology A level nearly every person in my textbooks came from LSE they are meant to be really strong for sociology.

    Good Luck

    LSE and Cambridge. SPS will still cover a vast amount of sociology.

    SPS is Social & Political Sciences - Politics, Sociology and Social Psychology combined together (with Social Anthropology in the first year). In the first year you do all the three, in the next you specialise.

    And here's the problem - both have great reputation, with Cambridge even greater, but LSE has more sociology oriented program, plus you can take extra courses from the rest of LSE departments, what is tempting. Moreover, is has excellent Msc programs. But on the other hand Cambridge is simply Cambridge...

    Still, it's the case of where I'll manage to get into

    Right, Goldsmiths has a good reputation too, but I never heard of Nottingham as specialised in sociology?

    My friend is going to read sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London.

    I heard it has a really good reputation.
