    I have offers from Bristol and Nottingham to study economics and Philosophy, Bsc at Bristol, BA at Nottingham. Which university/course do you think would be more likely to secure me a front office job? Thank you.

    I don't think any of them are target but I know Nottingham are like semi-target, quite a few get into IB through that uni.

    You'd probably get a better response with the BSc on your CV. It will depend on what area you want to go into

    I thought Nottingham was a BSc if you take a lot of econometrics units?

    Both are semi-targets. Nothing more needs to be said as everything else will depend on you.

    Think about which uni may help you more to get internships/ work experience. Is one better than the other at this?

    Are you currently networking? Consider your contacts that have been to these unis or highly rate them, you could get in touch once you have graduated.

    Both are 'semi-targets' and have fairly decent finance societies so can't really pinpoint which is better per se.. Honestly, I'd factor out IB into your decision making because of how close cut these two are.

    Focus more on: campus vs city? course content? year abroad available? accommodation? etc.

    To be perfectly honest, you need to have a solid CV to actually give yourself a decent shot. So try to find work experience, get involved with extracurricular stuff (don't just do things for the sake of it, try to actually enjoy what you're doing), volunteer and network/reach out to people in the positions you see yourself in. Start from now.
