    Which university is better to put as my first choice for studying mathematics: UCL or Warwick University? I plan to work in a finance company or something like this in the future, but not stay in university to do PhD. After which university is it easier to find a job? Which university prepares better for life?

    UCLs is probably the more applied course, Warwick's is more flexible.

    Yeah, that probably came across wrong: it isn't that UCL's isn't flexible, it's that Warwick's is ludicrously flexible. Even if you stay on the straight maths course, you can end up taking over half of your modules in non-maths areas in your third year, if you really want to.

    Living in London is super expensive though. You can get ensuite catered outside of London for a lower price than standard self-catered in London. You need to really be sure if you want to go to UCL, that extra debt had better be worth it.

    They're both the same to be quite frank, look at the course of each one and decide for yourself- also, what campus you'd prefer to be at. I'd say Warwick for Maths. Good luck x

    I'd definitely look at any module breakdowns they have available, especially in the final year. If one set grabs your interest more that's usually a good sign!

    Here's the one for Warwick
    You need to scroll down a little to find links to the modules.

    Here's the one for UCL
