Bristol vs UCL vs LSE Geography?Watch
I'm mainly interested in human geography and have offers from Bristol Bsc geography with quantitative methods, UCL BA geography and LSE BA geography. I was wondering what opinions people have on which to go for? The LSE course appeals to me the most but an enjoyable student life is important to me and this aspect has put me off LSE.
Im sorry but if you can actually get into LSE and get an offer you would be bat **** crazy to turn it down!
I'm at Bristol doing geog, can't speak for the other unis but I'm loving my degree here. Bear in mind obv at Bristol you do a human-physical mix in first year (though I'd say it's probably more human than physical, even if they're theoretically balanced). I really like that about the course and some people have got here and realised that they actually like the opposite side of geog to the side they intended to study. But if you're a total maths/science-phobe Bristol might not be for you. The department here are all really friendly and the lecturers make the subject really interesting etc, and from the get-go it's all based off what the lecturers are researching - not from a textbook like some other first year courses. The workload can be heavy, but (especially in comparison to UCL/LSE) that's not unique to Bristol. All in all I'd recommend the course, it's challenging but in all the right ways. That's not to say don't go for UCL/LSE - LSE especially has an amazing rep as a department. If you have any specific questions about Bristol/geog let me know!
