    So what would you say looks better to employers;
    > BSc Economics & Finance (Queen Mary)
    > BA Geography (King's College)

    Thanks.

    Kings, QMUL doesn't get the same level of recruiting

    As always: the course you do doesn't mean anything

    Rankings change over time, the picture could be very different in terms of whether kings or QMUL is better when OP graduates. Besides a first from QMUL will be more attractive to employers than a 2.1 in geography from kings

    No worries. I would 100% ignore people bashing Geography, for your info one of the senior MDs at Credit Suisse I spoke to did Chinese at uni and an analyst did Geography + History.

    Also from what I have seen, KCL placed fairly well in spring weeks this past year.
