    Would you say it's possible to get in to investment banking if you go to Sussex which is definitely top 20...or Essex...which isn't top 20 overall but specialises in Economics a lot and has one of the best Economic research departments in the country?
    Heres where logic goes array.

    Investment Banking recruiters are looking for the highly educated and quick thinking, they know that they can get quality candidates from big universities.

    If anything, go to a decent uni, and get a 1st. Get some experiance, then apply to an investment bank.

    From both those unis you have little to no chance of getting front office at an investment bank, its harsh but its very hard to get in from somewhere even like exeter or bath let alone Essex and Sussex.

    Stop giving false information. I went to Manchester and know people in investment banking front office earning a huge salary, many did maths or physics but its definitely possible.

    don't listen to yoyo he is a fool.

    Evidently you are clueless about graduate entry into Investment Banking. OP post a thread on the Investment Banking forum and they will tell you what I told you. At Sussex or Essex you stand little or no chance of getting a Front Office job.

    Pretty much the same for me. Sussex is a good uni, there's so many careers out there anyways, IB is only one of many.

    true but my main point is outside the top 10, everybody is pretty much on par with each other (unless the uni is absolute dog****) and anything that differentiates you puts you automatically, imo, up to the level of those in the top 10 unis if not higher in some cases
