    Does it matter which uni u get your degree from while applying for PHD? Its a 4 year dedication and I don't want to ruin it by any chance . I have got Warwick as firm choice and Lancaster as second choice. My interest in Lancaster Uni is because of the research that's being carried on in Algebraic Topology. Any help from PHD students would be highly appreciated.

    Of the two, Warwick's is by far the stronger undergraduate course. There's really no comparison: for example, Lancaster's 4th year module Topology and Fractals is strictly easier than Warwick's 3rd year Fractal Geometry, Lancaster's 4th year Metric Spaces is a subset of Warwick's third year Measure Theory, Lancaster's 3rd year Groups and Symmetry is more basic than Warwick's 2nd year Algebra 2, Lancaster's 2nd year Real Analysis is pretty much a subset of Warwick's 1st year Analysis 2, etc., etc. What's happening in terms of research isn't terribly relevant for undergraduate applications: the only time it's going to be really relevant is in the dissertation (MA4K9 Research Project at Warwick, MATH491 Mathematics Dissertation at Lancaster), and there Warwick's system is more useful as preparation (you have to find a supervisor and agree a topic, rather than being assigned them, for example, so you can make sure you get a topic that's actually relevant to you). There are enough people at Warwick with an interest in Algebraic Topology that it shouldn't be too hard to agree a dissertation in that area, and your dissertation topic isn't that relevant anyway (admittedly, this is coming from the guy whose PhD topic is exactly an extension of his undergrad dissertation, but that's not by any means universal).
