I have received an offer for economics at both UCL and LSE but really struggling to decide which to firm. The UCL course has a year abroad which seems like a great experience but everyone's been telling me it would be foolish to reject LSE. Is there really such a large gap in terms of prestige and job prospects? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Do you know where you’d be going during your year abroad? That’s pretty important I think.
Ucl is more of an all-rounder while Lse is tailored to econ. I’d say Lse has the edge but they’re both amazing target unis, I highly doubt you’ll be disadvantaged going to ucl in terms of career prospects. Extra curricular etc is more important tbh
I say go to where you prefer, they’re both amazing

You will get the same interviews and the same respect. UCL is a bigger more social university, with a wider campus imprint and several uni bars. Both are in central London and going to one or the other won't give you an advantage or disadvantage. Its purely up to you, go to both campuses and then decide.

If you prefer UCL because of the year abroad option and really want to embark on a year abroad programme, then choose UCL. Simples.

LSE will have options to study abroad too. Get in touch with them to explore what they have. I reckon every uni in the UK has an option to do a year or semester abroad. LSE is an economics institution, UCL is comprehensive meaning they teach everything. Both have amazing career prospects, education is as good as you will find anywhere and they're both in central London. There's a rizzla between them, but for me if I wanted to study Economics at the best possible place, that's LSE.

PS - well done you! amazing to get offers with both!
