    Hi guys

    I've just received my last offer today for biomedical science at Imperial, except now I can't decide between there and UCL. Are there any major differences between the two in terms of teaching, focus on research, etc? I would like to go into research in the future, so are there more opportunities for undergrad research in one or the other?

    Also, I just realised that Imperial is phasing out their current course. Is this a regular thing or does it signify that the course is not up to standard? Thanks.

    I'm at UCL doing biological sciences (first year) and we share a lot of modules with biomeds. UCL is an awesome place, I'm sure imperial is too but there's a lot of medical focus at UCL (since we have a hospital and everything) and when I was applying to uni, UCL had much much more choice and flexibility than imperial did for my course, and I think it's much the same across the life sciences at UCL. UCL also has amazing life sciences and medical research going on all the time. What's cool is you'll be in a lecture and the lecturer will have an opinion on something that they have made because they've been studying it in the lab, rather than from reading about it from this and that paper. I don't know much about imperial but UCL is awesome for life sciences.

    That sounds great. Thanks for the input. I've kind of been leaning towards UCL so this is reassuring.
