LSE Economics vs UCL Economics watch

    • Thread Starter

    I've got offer from both LSE and UCL in economics. The conditions are similar (I'm taking IB, LSE requires 38 HL766 and UCL, 39 HL766, both requiring a 7 in maths HL). From other threads it seems UCL has a better social life while LSE can give a better prospect in UK (and LSE vs UCL seems to be a struggle to many lol). But the thing is I'm an international student and I might not be staying in UK after I graduate, so is the difference between an LSE degree and a UCL one huge international-wise?I somehow prefer UCL, but it's really difficult to tell myself to give up LSE.Another question: people are saying that LSE costs more, but shouldn't it be similar?

    just do LSE.. LSE Economics is the cream of econ degrees. social life is what you make of it

    LSE gave you a lower offer and is more respected. I don't get why you're even considering UCL, especially considering they are both London based and you won't know what the uni is like until you go. LSE vs UCL is only a competition outside of Economics, but Economics is literally LSE's best degree at the best uni to do it in outside of Oxbridge.

    tl;dr LSE
