Since QS ranks universities generally, it might be better to look for strong business schools rather than simply strong universities. I guess you mean BI Norwegian Business School and I am not sure which UC campus you are aiming for. KCL and UCL don't have BSc in finance degrees, so you'll do a lot of accounting and stats before you get to finance. Generally, you should see how much actual finance any of the programmes you are looking at will let you do: some have a lot, like Manchester's Accounting and Finance BSc, but not all.

Perhaps UK business schools that do have a BSc in finance should be on your list: Aston, Birmingham, Durham, Lancaster, LSE, and Reading come to mind. I woud also look at the BBA options at the top French schools for finance, such as ESCP, ESSEC and EDHEC.

The BI BBA has just one year of finance, and the CBS BSc in IB doesn't seem to have more. I think you can work that out yourself by comparing the curricula. UCLA does not offer a major in finance, or even in business. At UCB business is just a two-year major. I don't see how you can get deeply into finance there. Again, you should know this already buy looking at the curriculum of each of the schools you mentioned.

I think there are many courses that could fit your needs. You can see for yourself which have more or less finance. Why you need finance and what your goals are should be the factors to identify the best ones.
