I know of course that the likes of oxbridge and LSE are super hot for high end firms, but I was wondering where on the spectrum the UoB lies. Is it targeted, semi-targeted or not at all? Thanks
Birmingham a target University? Watch

It's a non-target but I'm pretty sure I've seen a fair few Birmingham students get onto spring weeks/internships, not sure if they were FO though.

It is not a target but a decent place nonetheless.
The targets are Oxbridge, UCL, LSE, Imperial and Warwick.

Hi JoJo,As a student of Birmingham going into my target year, I can tell you that we aren't a target university for IB. There is starting to be more students getting internships/spring weeks and slowly but surely there are people securing grad placements (largely in MO, BO - compliance and risk). However, we do have good standing with the Big 4 and some other consultants - owing largely to the fact that many have offices in Brum and having hired many alumni before.Don't be discouraged from going, its a great uni with great prospects, will set you up well for a masters at perhaps a target uni
Happy to answer any questions you may have

Deutsche hires a lot from them, increasing FO roles
Edit: For their Birmingham office
