We could all be positive and say 'Oh, as long as I can do well enough in uni, everywhere's the same!'
Fact is that if i'm using my parents' money to pay the international and living expenses in a strong currency
and that employers may think otherwise...
maybe the City investment banks do know Bristol or Bath but in my country, not much people does. All they know is the ones mentioned up there.
all these is considering that i have a significant interest to go to both unis, but stuck between Bristol and Bath. I'd really like to go Bath but i may not do the placement...

Yeah same, I kept on thinking like that for a whole week until I drove myself to insanity and had to take a step back.

it's really really hard...i know i shouldnt have screwed up the PS like that.
we know how much difference in terms of job prospects it's gonna be....
I wouldn't say that! It's only a hurdle if you make it one. It's more about snobbery amongst family and friends that annoys me rather than job prospects. In terms of getting a job Bath will prepare you to compete with Oxbridge candidates due to the year of experience. If you have excellent A Levels and Uni grades and employers is going to think,' Wtf? How did they not get into a higher University? Interview them....' I don't know how it all works but Bath has very strong links with big financial institutions : BoE, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Nomura, PwC etc.
If you want to check this stuff out yourself rather than me convince you look at this: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/s...gems/external/
Warwick Prestige >>>>>>>>> Bath Prestige
Graduate Destinations are about equal.
Don't get so swayed by prestige and make a rash decision. See where you will be happy to study for 3/4 years instead.
