Your question is too general/ too broad

It depends on the course in question, but I think Imperial has a better reputation in general

Did you change your picture? If so, why? Is it because someone else has stolen it?

Imperial > UCL for all the subjects taught at Imperial.

UCL teaches a much wider variety of disciplines though, not just the technical ones.

I see far more people talking about UCL than Imperial on here though

Interesting... both have around 16,500 students total, so there shouldn't really be an imbalance

I'd say Imperial is neck and neck with UCL. If it's better in anyway, I doubt it'll be by much to really matter. I guess it'd probably be fair to say that Imperial might just have the edge for the sciences.

Maybe all the ICL students are busy studying whilst all the UCLers hang about on here...

I certainly speak to more UCL students on here than ICL ones. I don't think I know one ICL student on here. Do you?

Imperial prides itself on being very technical and practical. It carries the reputation of being science and engineering orientated.

UCL is excellent in these fields too but takes more pride in the arts and medicine to some degree.

So in the long term it is about what you would rather be associated with. Either way UCL still has top class science and engineering departments, imperial is just more specialised while UCL has a broad spectrum (this has pros and cons).

But, I consider UCL more international, it has a vast network. And it is by far more enjoyable. I know I would have had a greater experience had I gone there.

Honestly with these two you are not losing out on much in terms of opportunity and academia. Students too often disregard travel, accommodation, finances, the local area and just the general activities. These factors really influence your life at university to the point it can affect your grades as I was working to finance myself and travelling hours each day.

Could you have gone to ICL had you wished too? (Sorry I think you're the only UCL person I know on here)

ICL bias here, but i would say UCL is equally as fantastic. You can't compare apples and oranges...they are very different but very similar.

It's so marginal, that saying x is better than y is usually based on fluctuating quite subjective measures.

All the snobs throwing arrogant banter ought to stop. Once you're in uni you realize many of them are just the same. It's about what you put in.

I'm ICL, where did I say I was UCL? I just think I would have had a more enjoyable experience at UCL. It's less intense from my view.
