My background: BSc Mathematics from TU Berlin, was awarded a price for outstdanding achievements. Currently doing a MSc in maths and statistics, focusing on mathematical finance (very theory and probability focussed)

My exchange opportunities:

1) MSci Mathematics (Year 4 at postgraduate level) of Imperial College London (taking courses in ML, stochastic simulation, computational PDEs and statistics)

2) MSc Financial Mathematics (1 full year) at University College London (courses in Computational Finance, Financial Numerics, a C++ course, Statistics of algorithmic trading)

My goal: Doing a PhD in mathematical finance, maybe connected to ML. Later on either staying in academia or doing research and development at a trading company.

It feels like UCL is the obvious choice, but Imperial has a more outstanding reputation and offers good courses in ML, unfortunately offering almost no courses with a direct focus on financial applications (the courses are more theoretical).

What would you guys choose?
