    Ooh all A* unis, I wasn't confident enough to go for that haha
    Which durham college is it you've gone for?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    St Hild and St Bede. I did my A levels last year so I'm on a gap year at the moment, one of my mates goes to that college so that's the main reason I applied there

    Is there much difference in the economics courses at nottingham and birmingham? In terms of career prospects and respectability?

    I'm having a really tough time deciding which to firm out of KCL and Bristol. I went to the Bristol open day yesterday and really liked it but not as much as I like London. The only thing is that I like the Bristol course a bit more because it's pure economics and I feel Bristol might be slightly better in terms of employment prospects/ getting into a good postgraduate course. Does anyone know if this is true? I want to go to London but if Bristol is significantly better I would be willing to compromise...

    Nottingham is far superior in the eyes of potential employers

    had the same problem except with queen mary's. then realised that bristol is way better than those london unis, i'd love to go to london but unless you go to UCL or LSE then for economics bristol is better, especially if you do a level math cos it's a Bsc degree

    From my point of view, those of us taking economics care more about future career prospects than those applying for more vocational courses (English, Classics etc). I would say that the order for career prospects (based heavily on rankings but also employers at a career fair I attended) is Warwick>UCL>Bath>Bristol. Bristol might edge Bath overall but Bath has a real focus on placements and really preparing you for the labour market.
    Wow because I spoke to someone at Bristol a few days ago and that person said It is in the top 3-5 of job prospects(this sorta stuff). Obviously I guess there all good. But some would say UCL and Warwick are one bracket differentiated higher and I dont know the reason behind that.

    Hmm Bath was really nice, but I've also heard lots of good things about Bristol so I'll have to wait and see which one is the one for me 😄
