Hey ya

Durham - Accounting and finance

Bristol -Accounting and finance

UCL - Economics with european studies

I have contacted the universities which are listed above and i got really, really, really good positive feedbacks. (I am an international student and Canadian applicant.)

It's really difficult to decide which one to choose.

It would be great if i get some opinions from other people in terms of tradition, prestige, reputation and job-hiring.

Looking forward to hearing back!

all 3 of them are very good
on the university league tables, durham is 5th, UCL 7th and bristol 11th
also UCL is in london which will be quite expensive

Don't rely too heavily on 'the league tables'. They are completely unofficial and based on a mix of subjective and objective data in proportions decided by the various compiling organisations.

However, one factor you might want to take into account is that Accounting and Finance at Durham is NOT in the beautiful, traditional, Oxbridge-esque city of Durham. It is located some 25 miles away in the decidedly unattractive, ex-industrial town of Stockton - which by comparison, frankly, is a sh1thole.

As above, choosing a Uni based on League Tables, rankings etc isn't a clever idea. Look at the course and choose the one that has the optional units that actually interest you. PS. Second the advice about Durham. Bristol would be my choice.

Don't concentrate too much on league tables. I am confident in saying many people consider UCL as the more elite of the three. I would then go for Bristol.

For that course? Bristol, for the reason given above.

Is this for undergraduate or post grad? For what year? If undergraduate, have you actually applied through UCAS? (Your OP isn't clear.)
