Hi,

I’m not from around London so I was wondering what KCL is like in terms of prestige/employability? The only universities I have heard of that have a reputation of being “good” are imperial, lse and ucl.

Is KCL on par with these unis? Is it similar to Warwick?

Hello, in my opinion, KCL is slightly less prestigious than imperial/LSE/UCL, but it is still a really good university in the UK, I would put KCL in the tier with Bristol/Edinburgh/Warwick/Durham. However, prestigious is subjective and it is not the most important thing, are you an international student? If so and you would like some information on the course that you want to apply for then I suggest you do some research on the KCL's website: https://www.kcl.ac.uk. In terms of employability, I don't know much about it so I cannot comment on that, but I think when you apply for a job in the future, the most important thing is your skills and your knowledge, rather than the institution that you studied in, hope this helps!

Thanks this was super enlightening! Agreed, if you manage to get a first from any of these universities - you’re set!
