Hello

If one is to study philosophy, would it be more prestigious if one does an undergraduate degree, masters degree and DPhil, all from Oxford, or an undergraduate degree from UCL and then a masters and DPhil from Oxford.

I am not aiming to get into academia, (though I do not mind teaching for a short period) I want to get into the corporate world in London, e.g commercial/corporate law, but I truly do like the sound of a strong Academic background in which I believe Oxford is more capable than UCL in that sense.

Which one of the above approach would you say is the best approach for me in your opinion, assuming I would get in to all of them in that order.

Yours Faithfully
