I need your opinions. So for my back up plan in the UK, I also applied to UCL and LSE. It is more likely that I might be going to one of these unless Cambridge decides to change their mind and offer all 3 of my desired modules or I get accepted to the US universities with a scholarship. I was wondering if you could give me your opinion on which university in london is more prestigious abroad, UCL or LSE? I would appreciate anyone's contributions and reasoning for their answer.
I don't think it would be worth it paying £15k + 12k living expenses just to study one of my desired modules and 3 other modules I am barely interested in. It would be stupid to invest in the LLM only just for the university's title, its bad enough we can only study 4 modules compared to 6-8 plus a dissertation at other universities?
1. I would recommend waiting to see what replacement subjects Cambridge rolls out before declining the offer. Some of them might be similar enough to your desired subjects.
2. I think LSE has a better reputation than UCL abroad, especially in Asian countries (I'm from HK)
