Hi.

I've got offers from both but I really can't decide. For what I've managed to read:

UCL pros vs Warwick:
>Far more varied and intersting social life
>Better international rep (although I'm looking to work in England so not a huge issue)
>Warwick is in the middle of nowhere, UCL certainly is not.

Warwick Pros vs UCL:
>Course looks really intersting. Tonnes of variety and consistently higher student satisfaction with a very well run department.
>At UCL the focus is on research, at Warwick the focus is on the student.
>Warwick is very well run campus based Uni
>Warwick is a lot cheaper: perhaps a more diverse crowd rather than just rich kids (I can barely afford UCL)

From what I've seen, prestige and employment prospects are pretty much identical.

Yeah it's pure Econ. You're right I think UCL is a little more prestigious. Although this year Warwick have actually been more selective than UCL and rejected many people with straight A*s/grades far exceeding the requirements.

They're both great. I personally know people who attend Warwick and got in with ABB and although this was for science courses, UCL would never do this or even if they did it would be a slight miss in their offer ect

Are you based in London?
