    You need to have a look at what qualifications are required by the jobs you're interested in. Careers in these sectors as far as I know don't follow a particular route. I think a lot depends on your experience as well. Depending on your financial situation I'd say go with what you're interested in and see where it takes you.

    What sort of doors do these degrees at these universities open?

    Could I get a City type job and work in finance or banking through these degrees? They're at semi-targets. I'd like a stronger idea of to what extent they would set me up for a positive enough future. The first is the most likely one I believe I'd get an offer for and the last is the least likely one.

    'Management (Accounting and Finance)', at Manchester.

    'Management', at Nottingham.

    'Business and Management', at Durham.

    'Business Management', at KCL.


    I feel that if any of these degrees fail to give me the prospects I seek, and for satisfaction, I would love to study to beyond Bachelor's level. I really want to remain in education for as long as I can and go after a Master's or a PhD if I can someday. If I were to gain PG education in Business or Management Science, would I then probably have a bright future? One thing I'm contemplating too right now is whether I follow study which I might enjoy slightly less but can lead to good prospects, such as Business (not to say it's not interesting to me), or whether I follow a subject I think I'd really like, which is Psychology for me, though I don't know that for sure because I've not even pursued Psychology yet.

    The short answer is none of these degrees will 'open doors'. It's all down to your personal qualities, extra curricular activities and work experience.
