    The course sounds amazing and perfect for me Right combination of economics, finance and quite a few dedicated investment banking modules. Plus the ICMA/Henley business school facilities for F&IB are insanely amazing, they have the biggest and most investment/trading terminals that any non-investment banking institution
    I've just googled it and would agree that the ICMA centre is pretty impressive. I haven't seen any university with that kind of a facility which is a big plus point. Also a £2000 incentive to get AAA sounds good to me so get those grades!

    I know, its why i choose to go for this degree I had offers to do like money, banking, finance from Birmingham, and the uni probs way more highly looked at, but course-wise i love the idea of F&IB looked great when i went to the post offer day They had a 30min trade simulation game for all the applicants with offers on the day, was very engaging

    I know it might not be worth it
    but thats the only thing that has slight use for my personal statement..

    WHAT? Seriously, you live in HK. There are countless multinational companies and offices based there. Just go to them and ask to have some work experience or for a job placement. It will be way more useful.

    when you uploaded you cv (and included the small paragraph, which they asked for, in it), did you ALSO write the 300 word thing?

    I put the paragraph in the text box instead cause it would be stupid to give them the same thing twice.

    Frankly, I don't think that they will pay a lot of attention to it. They'll browse through them and decide on the basis of grades and maybe they'll also look at which university you are going to study at.

    Have you mentioned in your CV where have you got the offer from? I was wondering to add that to but not sure cos we haven't actually got the grades for them yet??
