I have since received acceptances to both of these schools for the following programs: Accounting and Finance at LSE, and Economics & Accountancy, Business Studies and Banking and International Finance at City. Basically, I'm not sure what would be best, so I was hoping maybe some who's had some experience with either of these schools could shed some light on the situation.
Firstly, I could go to LSE for the 3-year degree program in Accounting and Finance, which I'm leaning towards, since apparently the school is top notch. This would also mean that I would only have to pay the tuition for the 3-years, which is a significant savings over City, since I'm deemed as an "overseas" student (despite being a UK citizen). On the other hand, with City, I would get a 4-year program that would include a work placement or an internship with KMPG. This would be valuable experience, and I figure I could always look to this company after graduating for employment. I would also make some money while doing this. Failing that, I could just save the cash and go to school here in Canada.
Basically, I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the programs or schools. If so, how was it? Secondly, any ideas on which one I should choose? If I took LSE, how tough would it be to find a job in London afterwards?
Any advice/input is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
