    I have offers from both universities and am trying to decide which to firm.

    Anyone have any thoughts on which is better for maths?

    I don't really care about stuff like social life and cost or location, just the maths course and graduate prospects.

    Warwick is a beautiful place and (like Imperial) it offers a fantastic maths course. There isn't too much in it, but of course you can look at the prospectus for each course and see what sounds/looks better to you. But even if I were completely honest on the basis of what I've seen of Warwick, I'd still say that Imperial has the edge.

    And for me, studying in London was a great experience. It's a very diverse, lively city that plays host to a number of other institutions. And although the city can be a tad anti-social in certain respects, student life is still very good afaic.

    If we're talking about graduate prospects then Imperial wins by quite big margin. :yep:

    Imperial mathmo here too but disagree with graduate prospects with Warwick Maths v Imperial Maths. Warwick has a strong business school, has a good rep and a very strong Finance Society so I wouldn't discard it so easily... I'd place them roughly equal; on uni names alone Imperial would win, though.

    @OP, As far as I know, Warwick offers more flexibility in its Maths degree while Imperial's is more pure. However, location wise, while I've never been around Coventry/Leamington Spa/etc, I'm pretty sure that you can't beat South Kensington... Imperial also has a lot of societies so there's something for everyone. Student life is what you make of it; it is full of males and definitely has a nerdy atmosphere but it's not a massive deal or anything.
