    Currently I am studying a Bachelor in Business Administration at UAB (a university from Barcelona). I take the studies fully in English and I am a second year student

    In the future I would like to work at Investment Banking in London (in Spain the industry is not really strong).

    My plan is the following:
    - Exchange program in Hong-Kong (next year, one semester). I would specially in finance due to the wide optative options they have.
    - Exchange program in UCL (4th and final year) It would be exactly when the applications begin.

    ¿Do you think that I would be possible for me to get into the Investment Banking industry in London? Considering that I do not come from a target university in Spain (I would say semi-target), but my grade is close to 9 out of 10 and I am among the top 5% of my studies

    By that time I expect my English to be almost perfect and really fluent

    P.S: UK universities I can choose among:

    University College London
    University of Edinburgh

    Which one would you choose? I understand that UCL is the best.
