    Manchester Metropolitan - Finance and Banking
    Nottingham Trent - Economics, International Finance and Banking
    Northumbria - Finance and Investment Management

    I've never heard of such unis before. It's quite disappointing to hear people asking about different unis (pros and cons) when they could do the research themselves.

    As previous stated I have done research myself and now I am asking people if they know about the courses. You obviously are stupid.

    I don't think your chances are very high going into investment banking with any of these, unless you have connections. If you don't already have them, then it's quite difficult for you in the future as I don't think they will take interns from these universities either.

    But I suppose Sheffield Hallam.

    I mean they are all very bad universities but Hallam is better I guess.

    But if you study in Manchester, you may be able to build up your connection for being in the city.

    I don't know.

    Judging from the choices made, I'd think they haven't got the grades.

    Oh yeah, because these are the top universities in the UK which offer finance or any business-related discipline.

    Also, if you want to go into investment banking, where you attended matters a lot more than what your degree is on.
