    Look at page 33 of the spreadsheet for the economics specific data.
    and the QM Economics salary is low (20.6K)
    or look at the spreadsheet where I extracted out the economics data:

    I have never been to Bath, but to be honest i prefer more busy places, so i am not sure if i will like living there
    How the hell do you know how busy a place is if you've never been there?

    My friend visited it and she said that if you are the kind of person who likes more of a busy city life Bath isn't really a place for you. Is she wrong?

    well anyway, I am applying there since it is very good university academically and offers a 1 year placement

    well its a pretty good uni, and has a low offer, and cuz i dont have maths even to AS i am in a very weak position for ppe/pe, so i cannot be too agressive with my application, also my AS grades leave a lot to be desired, i just need to decide whetehre to go for a top one for my 5th or another low one! decisions decisions

    She's sort of wrong.

    Bath is a small city. But it's very, very busy.

    I don't know but yes that is a bit of an outlier.

    But I do know why the QM Economics salary is a lot lower than their avergae across all subjects. That is because QM mainly does Medicine and Denistry and those are high income occupations!

    Paulwhy, it might be irrelavant but do you think Social policy and economics course at LSE is quite good to work in banking? I checked the structure and you can choose financial options as well as for ex. law options which is very interesting for me, but I am wondering how practical it is to study this course and still be able to enter banking?

    Thanks

    I don't know anything about careers. You could ask in the IBC forum but it is possibly that there is a lot of chat on bank requirements by people who are almost completely ignorant. But half a course on Sociol Policy does not sound a good start to me.

    But check out the LSE site on PS writing: they will want half a PS on Sociol Policy and Half a PS on Economics. So that will really mess up your PS. So don't apply for this course!

    Paul, hello again I am picking my 5th choice so far I decided :
    1 LSE
    2 UCL
    3 Warwick ( might replace by nottingham but dnt think so)
    4 Bath
    and 5 Iwas thinking... as I applied to really really competitive courses and I have to get an offer this year I was thinking about a weaker uni like RHUL but then I changed my mind and so far I am deciding between:
    Edinburgh, Birmingham, City with 1 year in ind.

    or shall i keep RHUL??

    Its so confusing without being able to visit all of them

    Ideally I am making 5th choice on the basis of reputation, graduate prospects, location and accomodation.. so maybe any help?

    thank you

    You want a safety Uni. This would not be Edinburgh (too competitive) but you can do better than City or RH. So have an AAB.2.1 uni as a safety (of which Birmingham is one).
