    I've been contemplating doing this degree on the basis that a.) I'm pretty good at maths, b.) I find business related subjects interesting and I feel like this would be a suitable choice and a respected one as well. However, I'm worried that the degree might limit me to only accounting, I'm not sure whether being an accountant is something I desire to pursue yet, so how limiting is this degree, should I decide that it isn't something that interests me whilst I'm studying it?

    Hi,
    In some aspects an accounting & Finance degree does limit your options. If you do decide go into something other than accounting, it is the finance subjects that will help you and with majority of accounting & finance degrees, that won't be much help. You've mentioned being good at maths but majority of top uni's like University of Manchester don't regard Accounting as a highly quantitative maths subject, At the same time however some universities do over the option to change over after your first year of study. The University i studied at, everyone who studies Econ + Finance, Business + Accounting, Business + Finance all had the same first year modules allowing you to change over to a different degree if you realised you enjoy something else better. Having said that not all universities use this form of system

    My best advice to you is Economics with Finance/Mathematics. This is leaves loads of doors open and allows you the time to actually think what you want to do depending on what your being taught.
