    Hello everyone.
    I'm a year 3 Economics student from a UK university and I'm planning to apply for the following courses

    - Cambridge MPhil in Economics
    - Oxford MPhil in Economics
    - LSE MSc in Economics
    - Warwick MSc in Economics
    - UCL MSc in Economics

    I'm trying to get more information about these courses so that I can prioritise the choices as I start working on my applications. Can anyone describe the respective strength and weaknesses in these courses one by one? I'm looking for a course with good micro teaching.

    Thanks

    Hi there!

    First off, it'll be great if you could share with us your profile I'm applying for MSc Economics and Management at LSE and for a start I believe that LSE > UCL > Oxbridge in terms of research. I've read elsewhere in TSR that the economics department at Oxbridge has been on the decline - you could check out the other MPhil Economics threads.

    Also, from my knowledge, LSE is more macro-founded but I'm not too sure about this.

    Hello.

    Im now studying in Warwick with a marginal first in my second year. I guess LSE and Oxford might be a bit short for me to get in.
    I heard some ppl saying that Cambridge emphasises on metrics a lot, much more than other unis if so then cambridge would be a good choice for me since metrics is also something im keen on.
