    I was thinking about applying to the UCL MSc ML or MSc CSML next year, but am not sure which to go for. My bachelors is in mathematics, focusing on statistics and theoretical physics; so on one hand I'm thinking that my undergrad is more relevant for CSML, but on the other hand, I would probably end up taking mostly machine learning options anyway, so I'm not sure whether I'd learn much in the stats that I hadn't done in undergrad.

    Obviously to a certain extent the preferred course will depend on the student, but I'd still be interested to hear opinions on the courses (especially from people who've taken either).

    It really depends on what you feel you'd like to do after the course, which course you'll learn more from and which course offers options that you're more interested in.

    I'd note that if you get onto the CSML course you will start earlier than the ML course with a 2 week statistical foundation course. I'm pretty sure you can chose to move to the ML course after that so if you're not sure which to apply to then why not pick CSML and keep your options open.
