    Hi, I am studying a HND in Business, 2nd year.

    I will be getting a merit profile as I have already achieved 6 merits, 4 passes and 1 distinction.

    I have been offered a conditional place by Northumbria Uni to do Business and Finance - https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/study-...rd-uufbns2fnc/

    And a conditional place by Univeristy College of Birmingham to do Business Enterprise - http://www.ucb.ac.uk/our-courses/und...hons)-fda.aspx

    Wanted some advice which is a better degree in terms of job prospects:
    Northumbria Uni Ranked- 60/126
    University College of Birmingham course is accredited by University of Birmingham who are ranked - 18/126

    I want to either have a job giving financial advice or working in a management role.

    The course Northumbria Uni is 75% coursework - https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/study-...rd-uufbns2fnc/

    The course at Univeristy College of Birmingham is 70% coursework, 22% practical and 8% exam - http://www.ucb.ac.uk/our-courses/und...hons)-fda.aspx

    Hiya

    Have you visited either university? Which did you prefer both the campus and the city?

    Also how do you feel about exams v coursework?

    I went Birmingham and I loved the city so much I actually stayed living there for another 3 years to work. If you have any questions about the city let me know

    Check out the reviews on uni match - graduate data i.e. salaries and employability.

    If you're concerned about employability I would check out the placement / sandwich year opportunities. Business experience as part of a course will be looked on favourably.

    Both are similarly matched as in city life, accommodation etc. I have booked an open day with both of them. Thanks for your help once again

    Hello,

    I am currently a Events Management student in my final year of University College Birmingham. Although I haven't done the Business Enterprise course, I can tell you UCB are extremely good in helping you with you future career.
    There is a Hired department within the university that helps you find volunteer work, part-time jobs and helps you find a career after university. I have found when looking for a job, companies are very interested in what you have done alongside your studies to better yourself e.g. volunteer and part-time work. I am glad I took advantage of this service at UCB as it has helped me gain a lot interest from potential jobs.
    Hope this has helped.
    if you want any more information, feel free to ask
