    Hi All,

    I am lucky enough an offer-holder for both LSE's BA in Geography and UCL's new BASc degree. I know this is not a bad problem to have, but I am really having trouble choosing my favourite. I get the general impression that LSE will get me where I want to go but at the cost of a pretty boring and very tough three years. UCL looks like more of a risk in terms of after the course but maybe more enjoyable? Does anyone who has undertaken these courses have any advice or LSE/UCL students more generally have any words of wisdom? Many thanks in advance

    I would go for which ever one would open up more employment prospects/get me where I want to be in the future. 3 tough years for a career you want is worth it in my opinion.

    UN requires a postgraduate degree. Knowing that a BSc or BA is not enough you can plan ahead.

    That's good to know. Hopefully both degrees will equip me well - LSE seems to have better links for internships etc. though

    Either is good. Geography may be more directly relevant. Together with a MSc you will demonstrate focus, commitment and be well positioned.
