Hi,

Was just wondering if anyone would be able to give any advice. I have offers from both for these courses and since I took a gap year, whichever one I firm I’d pretty much be guaranteed to go there.

Social life and uni atmosphere is really important to me and I want the typical uni experience which I’ve heard is lacking at LSE and puts me off greatly. I really liked UCL on the open day and although I’ve visited LSE several times before and didn’t like it much I haven’t been to the offer holders day for my course yet. I also want to go into finance which LSE is renowned for.

Any advice from people who’ve been to both unis/ done these courses and what they thought of the uni’s social life would be much appreciated. For people who were in a similar position before, how did you make your decision and did you regret it at all?

Thanks

You really have to be happy where you go so if LSE will not make you happy pick UCL. They are both good unis so you can't really go wrong. You can find students here.

The thing is, although LSE is stereotypically less social than UCL, I think I’d have a good time wherever as I’m sure there would be similar people. Thanks very much, I shall have a look

hey, I'm literally having the same dilemma as you. Personally I'm swaying towards LSE mainly due to their extensive careers network in finance (which is what I want to go into too), social life is also a huge aspect for me but I believe that LSE will be just as fun as long as you put in the effort to socialise with people. I'm sure you'll have a great time anywhere ahah
