    I'm a second year Aerospace Engineering student (4 year course).
    I am considering a career investment banking. Is my degree appropriate for these career or would I find some problems when applying? I know that they do not require an specific degree but they might give preference to certain degrees.
    Also on my first year at university I didn't do very well (52%) but for my degree first year doesn't count. Would it be a problem when applying?

    I'm an international student (Spanish), do companies give preference to home students?

    Thanks in advance and sorry for the long message!
