    Which will put me in a better position? The course is for Chemical Engineering. It appears Nottingham is slightly more targeted but then Manchester's Chemical Engineering course is more reputable.

    Someone has already said that the difference wouldn't be great. Would it be true to say, then, that between the two my chances aren't likely to be too different and my CV will matter more?

    Will it be easier to get a placement at Nottingham?

    Thanks!

    Or do I have little chance with either lol...

    Would you say the difference in the two unis if I want to get into IB is significant?

    Low compared to Oxford/Cambridge/Imperial/LSE/UCL/Warwick, which are the most commonly targeted for front office IB roles.

    Nottingham is more targeted for IB than Manchester.

    Thank you! I could have applied to UCL who wanted the same grades as Manchester and Nottingham but was determined to move away from London and maximise my 'uni experience'. Perhaps not the best way to improve my FO IB prospects...

    The entrance requirements aren't exactly reflective of the difficult of attaining an offer (otherwise all of the top 10 universities for Economics would be equally difficult to get into, which is untrue).

    UCL would have been way harder to get into than Manchester/Nottingham.

    This was for Chemical Eng though, not Maths/Economics etc where UCL excel. UCL's Chem Eng course isn't as competitive as there others. Not that it makes much difference at this point haha.
