I'm an international applicant who received an offer from Cambridge for a BA in economics and have some questions.
1) I have the choice of doing either a BA degree in Cambridge or a bachelor's + master's in a foreign university. In the City job market, do the connections / prestige of a Cambridge education outweigh the fact that I'm only applying with an undergraduate degree? Does an undergraduate degree put me in a disadvantage compared to other job-seekers?
2) Does a BA place a hard cap on how far I can advance on my career? Is it possible to take further qualifications after already having entered the job market once?
3) How is the reputation of Cambridge compared to other top universities e.g. LSE, Warwick and Oxford in the UK?
Thanks in advance!
This is how Oxbridge students do it.
