I am a high school student in Hong Kong and now deciding which country to attend undergraduate course, US or UK. In the UK, although Oxbridge is very prestigious across the world, top London universities - like UCL, King’s College, Imperial, LSE - are also ranked in quite high place in world university rankings. Currently, I am studying IB to get a passport to the UK universities, but I am now interested in US universities, too.
Of course, I understand many prestigious schools outside the northeast part of America, just as UK has some reputative schools outside the England.
Please let me know rough comparison between Ivy League school and top London universities in terms of prestige, job-hunting prospectus (if possible, in US, UK, and other parts of the world), and graduates’ reputation.
BTW, I want to study social science disciplines, especially Politics and International Relations.
