    So I'm an International prospective student who has an offer from both Warwick and LSE for Economics. I'm a bit constrained by the budget so I would like to know what are the living costs for LSE and Warwick? UoW is asking an extra 4000GBP for the tuition fees so what will be a better financial option among the two Unis?

    Warwick is known for its maths, LSE is known for eco, and LSE has more international recognition for eco. I would take LSE.

    Which course? I'm surprised Warwick is more expensive for tuition.

    However living costs in London will be much higher than Warwick.

    I assume BSc economics, as overseas fees are ~£18400 for LSE and ~£22000 for Warwick.

    Yeah, that's pretty much it, although accommodation etc is on the higher side in LSE. I'm unable to choose as the costs etc all come up to be almost the same. Warwick is known for it's campus (also, a more reputed Economics course) but then, LSE is LSE.

    That's what I thought too, but Economics at UoW is rated higher than that at LSE. Also, the Math requirement at LSE was higher than Warwick.

    LSE is likely to have higher costs of living because it is London. Both are superb universities and you shouldn't lack for job prospects afterwards.

    Maths at warwick requires A*A*A* i dont think LSE>Warwick in maths, and plus league tables mean nothing. The rep of LSE is in finance is arguably better than warwick (even though they both place very well in IB)

    Interesting to note that most humanities & social science undergrad courses at Warwick are £17,460 (2017/18) and LSE is £18,408 but Economics at Warwick is an exception: £22,260

    Hmm....
