    I would like to break into the investment banking industry, Middle/front office preferably. So what university do you guys suggest that I should firm.

    University of Nottingham -Industrial Economics (BSC) OFFER
    University of Manchester - Economics (BA) OFFER
    University of Birmingham - Economics (BSC) OFFER

    Waiting on Exeter for Economics.

    That leaves me with university of Leicester, which is my insurance and not a strong candidate which i will be rejecting.

    Sounds like someone didn't take Maths A level...

    The best of those listed are Exeter and Nottingham. From there it's down to preference.

    A BA in Economics is stupid. If you choose Nottingham, make sure to convert to a BSc in the second year which I understand they openly welcome.

    Yes no A level Maths lol. Notts is Industrial Economics so its BSC. Why do you say BA Econ is stupid?

    Which unis and what course are you applying for?

    What I'm applying for isn't relevant.

    Economics is a mathematical subject by nature and a solid grounding in mathematics is essential in understanding these concepts. On this basis a BA in Economics is like using a calculator to study English Literature.

    It's still a good degree from a good university, but not facilitating in an academic way. Go for BSC at any of those Unis.

    Notts would be the best out of the four for IB prospects.

    Between the other three differences arent signficant enough to say one has any real advantage over the other. I would be inclined to go to Manc though because:


    a) sheer size of the uni means that IBs have to come and visit (whereas extent to which IBs visit Exeter & Brum is less certain)
    b) reputation as a party uni, so think its uni where mostly likley to enjoy your 3 years
