Should have mentioned 'at undergrad', being an economist normally requires you to undergo a Masters or PhD in Economics.(Original post by Speckle)
Everything you talk about I'm sure is right but just to mention that this isn't necessarily true. You can work as an economist out of academia. Both public and private sector.

I'm not going to a uni where it's high on the league tables but it's in the top 30, would this even allow me to have a job earning at least 50k or more a year if have a lot of experience and a first at university? It would I be stuck with 20k a year because my university isn't prestigious enough or in the top 10.
Can anyone help?

Even so, why would someone aged 21-24 even need to be making 50K per year?!
Good uni does not automatically mean you'll have a gold mine of a job at all.
20K starting salary is pretty good even and you can work your way up as you will have minimal experience when you are fresh from uni despite whatever your degree grade is/university portfolio
