I'm going to be studying Economics at the LSE in September 2021 but want to study in the US & Cam/Oxf. Is it possible to apply whilst already studying at a UK university/worth it? I don't necessarily want a gap year since if I'm unsuccessful, it will be a full 15 months wasted

You can’t apply to Cambridge if you’re already studying at another university. They don’t like ‘stealing’ students.

Oxford doesn’t care though.

Got it - thank you!

Do you know about US universities - I've extensively searched the internet but can't find much help.

Oxford might consider you, not sure about cam... in US the application process will become quite complicated, you need to apply as a school student since you wont complete 1st year at LSE so no qualifications. If you do study at LSE for 1 yr then you might be able to transfer credits but I’m not sure if you have to restart the whole course there and study another 4 years. UToronto does take transfer students tho but it’s in Canada if you want a top uni.
However, LSE is 2nd in the world for social science so i dont see a point in changing when you already have the best opportunity but that’s your decision. In some cases LSE is much more well regarded for investment baking and front office jobs than any other uni check this : https://www.efinancialcareers.co.uk/...nt-banking-job Also i dont think its worth it because there its 4 yrs compared to 3 yrs plus you will save money here (if that concerns you) — these were just my opinion... take into account all possibilities and make a decision. All the best!
