    Hi,

    I am looking to transfer from QM to Portsmouth, Qm is the most depressing place ever. You think it is worth doing the transfer?

    My housemate did Economics and was thrilled with the department and the course. He graduated this year and recently started on a grad scheme with a global bank, not sure about Computing. The university itself has quite a community feel even though it is rather large, theres always something to do- the union is great as well.

    Yeah, although as with any degree nowadays its not a golden ticket- if you can get some voluntary work or a paid job while you study it will help get you a good job after. One of my other friends is off to study a Masters at Imperial after being awarded an academic scholarship; so portsmouth can definitely help you get somewhere in life. Maybe try and get down to an open day and see the uni and talk to some current students? The library is being redone as well so should be really good.

    Yes I agree. Can I ask what Bank your house mate that did Economics is working at?
