LSE is a great uni so well done on your degree! Don't feel too sad. I'd pick QMUL to stay in the London scene. They're all great uni's but with QMUL there are lots of job oppurtunities at your doorstep...and they'll all respect LSE as an institution
Is there a course you prefer?

nuclear_pavlova is right about QMUL being better for jobs, but I'd say Exeter has a better rep.
A 2.2 from LSE will still get you places, so you should maybe compare the research quality of each and take the best one?
My only experience of Liverpool uni is via my sister who did her undergrad and MA there and according to her it sucks monkey nuts...however she was reading politics.

Thank you for the advices, nuclear_pavlova and FlyingIsis!! very nice of you!
but I am still a little bit confused.
QMUL's location could be good for finding a job (in London), Msc Finance and investment is a theoretical business course. loads of people take this kind of business course.
Exeter's location is not convenient for job searching. but the Msc financial maths is a specialised course. Less people take this course than common Finance course. So it could put me in better position when compete for a job.
Liverpool university is a member of the Russell group. Its ranking position is better than QMUL. Maths course could give a solid foundation of science, but not job specialised.

I've just graduated from QMUL and had a mate who did a similar course to the one your looking for a masters. She loved it and was in a job within a few weeks of finishing. So I maybe a bit bias.
First ignore the rankings, they are complete bull and the big employers know which unis are the best for their recruits.
Do you want a specific job? If so take whichever is geared towards that. If not, I'd go with a general fianance course so that you have more scope when looking for jobs.
As for the environment, Liverpool is quite nice and has a good social scene and QMUL is is in the heart of the city.
If you have access to a careers adviser I'd go have a chat with them, see what they say.
