Accounting and Finance or Economics

    • Thread Starter

    I love both subjects, I have seen the course details and structure for both Economics and A&F but i just cannot decide.
    I am currently studying economics A-level and am thoroughly enjoying it.
    However, In terms of doing A&F, the graduate is not limited to just doing accounting?? is that right.
    I have no idea what to do and am having to draft my personal statement soon, so no ideas.
    In terms of job progression etc. Whats your opinion on this?
    Thank you

    Having a specific degree doesn't make you more or less employable in areas such as these so pick the one that is more interesting. Either way you will gain a load of transferable skills which can take you lots of different ways. See where grads from these courses have ended up and look at interesting jobs to get an idea of what they require.
