    Hey guys,

    as I want to apply next year for 5 UK universities (Im from Germany ) I wanted to ask you if my choice is good- regarding the chances to get in and the reputation: Warwick, Oxford, UCL, Edinburgh and Manchester.
    I tried to choose some of 3 of the Top 5 and two which arent in the Top 10 in rankings to maximize my chances to get a chance to study in UK So what do you think?

    Not all of the five universities I apply to teach straight economics but like economics, politics and international studies (warwick), economics and managment (oxford), economics and business with east european studies (ucl) ...
    so how to write a personal statement? I mean for ucl I have to persuade them that Im interested in east european policy and economics but for oxford I need a good ps about my interest especially in managment :/ idk how to do that

    Thanks for help

    So you are intentionally applying for these courses? I think you have chosen too wide of a variety, if I were you I'd narrow it down to one, maybe two choices so that you can get a more focused personal statement.

    Manchester. I know three final year Economics students (that is 3 out 3 people who I know) who had inter ships in finance/banking firms during their second year. So Manchester is well considered.

    However, Warwick and Oxbridge are the top tier universities if you want to go into IB.

    The post is so off the ball that it should be marked as spam
