    Hey guys

    What course do you think is best with regards to career prospects: Econ at Southampton 3yr or Econ with year in industry at Bath? Not sure how important it is for a university to be in the Russell Group.

    Thanks! Hope everyone gets their offers
    lol bath is wayyy better for Econ, especially with the placement year

    Russel group is just a group of unis who get a lot of research funding, most of the top unis are part of it however Bath and St Andrews aren't for reasons I don't know but I'd personally go with Bath, the placement year is a big plus.
    Okay I thought Bath is a bit better but wasn't too sure since it isn't in the russell group. Thanks for the response though

    12 offers per place for L100
    Where did you get that from? Because 217*12=2604 and theres only 3000 applicants for L100 and L101 combined, meaning success rate would be over 87%! Do you mean 1.2 rather than 12?

    Sorry I meant 12 applications per offer so the success rate would be 8 %!! And for those who get an offer not everybody goes to UCL! I found it in the undergraduate prospectus-2015 entry

    Thats applicants per place, not applicants per offer. I want to know applicants per offer- so if you apply what are the chances of getting an offer- because universities give out more offers than places
