Whats more important? The course or Uni?Watch
For a sense of prestige and the opportunity to be prepared for your career- the university
But the latter can be nullified by you working hard and being pro-active.
For example LSE have banks visiting every week or so compared with lower tier universities where they do not visit as much or at all.
'Along with Oxbridge, Imperial and LSE are universities such as UCL and Warwick (though this only applies to Warwick's Economics and Maths departments). UCL and Warwick are the remaining members of the G5, and are also top Universities to break into the profession from.After the G5:
- Cass Business School (London)
- King’s/York/St Andrews
You will hear the same sort of thing about Law and 'which Uni', and most of that is utter bunkum as well.
Whilst there is a concentration of grads from certain Unis in these professions, it is NOT exclusive, and it is as much to do with this sort of assumption as anything factual (ie. 'there is no point in me applying there, they only take people from ABC Uni', which becomes therefore becomes self confirming.) Just because there is a concentration of X grads does not in itself mean this is a prerequisite - just that more of those people were appointed (frequently because they are more self-confident or have the assumption they will succeed as a result of their more privileged background).
Companies like Deloitte are now assessing applications 'Uni blind' - ie.without knowing the name of the Uni, so its entirely on your own ability, qualities and determination than some old boy network : http://www2.deloitte.com/uk/en/pages...cruitment.html
