Hi all,
I'm student from the US and currently holding uncond. offers from UCL and Durham. I'm having a lot of trouble choosing which one I like more . I'm pretty laid back so I don't really care about the living environment or student union. I care more about the course quality/reputation/career prospect of these courses (sorry I know it's so stereotypical but I can't help but...).
So what do you guys think? Esp. helpful if you're in/did the course.
Thanks!

They are completely different degrees with little in common apart from the name. What specific subjects are you interested in?

Durham's Combined Honours in Social Sciences degree is a bit like an American-style Liberal Arts degree in that it enables you to construct your own degree, choosing subjects from a wide range of options in the Social Sciences and Arts and Humanities. Click here to see a list of subjects you can study, click on the links to find individual modules offered by each department.

UCL's Social Sciences degree is less flexible, most of the modules are in Sociology, Social Psychology, Social Policy and Politics. You can see a list of modules here (scroll down to the bottom of the page).
