I was thinking of studying an Accounting degree but then I found that some unis offer Economics with Accounting. Now I am confused on which one to apply to. I have studied accounting and I enjoy it but I have never studied economics and I am not sure whether I will like it. Also is it even worth studying an accounting degree? And which degree would be better to get a job? Please help

A lot of people do accountancy and finance, it depends what you want to go into really.

On this website it says that 75% of people went into a job after their degree.

Economics might not be your type of thing if you've never studied it before- you should do some research into course content to make sure you'd actually enjoy it.

With economics, according to this site only 61% went into employment.

That's because you can't get a job as an economist without at least a first or a postgraduate degree (RBS requirements). One thing to remember is an Economics graduate can do anything an Accounting graduate can. The same can't be said for the Accounting graduate. Economics is definitely more interesting and will give you more options but if you want to become an accountant, the accounting degree will give you exemptions from the first stage of the accounting exams.
