    ffs have you ever read the banking section
    I obviously agree with the unis as they are target universites.
    But you can do any degree.

    Target Unis: Oxbridge, Warwick, UCL, Imperial, LSE
    Semi-Targets: Notts,, Cass business school, Durham and a few others.
    Degrees: You can do any degree, but if you want to work in S&T then do something like Maths, Physics, Computing etc. (A degree in finance will prepare you for the job more than other degrees, but you learn on the job anyway so it is not essential)
    Just make sure to apply for internships/insight days/spring weeks and get other work experience and get interesting extra-curricular activities and good grades
