Warwick: MSc Mathematical Finance vs UCL: MSc Computational Finance

I have got an offer from both
(Warwick: MSc Mathematical Finance and UCL: MSc Computational Finance)

Course curriculum is comparable as well.
Confused !, please guide as to which one to choose.

Warwick based on name alone.

Relative went to Edinburgh (he had offers from Imperial and Cambridge but wanted to enjoy city of Edinburgh as well) and that got him into a quant fund. Will depend on your previous background not just the masters when recruiting- undergrad, work experience etc but just on pure name alone for the quant related masters his fund looks at recruiting Masters grads from-

Edinburgh
Cambridge
Imperial
Warwick
LSE

Any of those are fine choices (you will learn same material and all have equal weighting in market) and does not matter but where you prefer to study based on location etc.

Thank you so much for the insights, your words will help me in making the right choice.
Both are good options to finance careers so its hard to go wrong. I would peronally go for UCL as it is a slightly more competitive course and it has a compulsory placement in industry. Most importantly it is in London so u can network very easily.
