Hi all! I need advice.

The main question is what is more important, to study a course that perfectly fits you or to study at a university with a high rep?

To be more specific, I got an unconditional offer for economics with computing at Essex University and I think that this course is perfect for me. But since I got good grades (i'm an international student)

I talked to the Lancaster University and I can apply through the adjustment to their uni which is one of the top 10 in the UK but there I will just study economics.

Now, what do you think is more important? rep or course?

Course is more important than rep/uni. You may love the university and the reputation but all of those statistics mean absolutely nothing if the degree structure is different to what you expected and you do not enjoy the universities approach to the course while studying. So if economics with computing is perfect for you, pursue it because you’ll enjoy it more.
