Both Bath and Warwick are more quantitative than Durham. This has nothing to do with the fact that Durham is BA, but more to do with the fact you won't cover matrix algebra until the second year at the earliest and can avoid it entirely. That said, Durham is more applied, and so you should leave with a better understanding of everyday economics as opposed to theoretical models.

Warwick generally has a better reputation than Bath, but it's all very much of a muchness. Both are good programmes, particularly at the BSc. I'd maybe opt for Warwick over Bath due to university size (Warwick has almost 10k more students), more societies, etc.

But personally I believe there is little difference between Warwick and Bath in terms of BSc course, career opportunities, etc. It is more about university size, lifestyle and atmosphere.

Hi,

I'm a second year student currently studying at Bath. I don't study economics but I'll try and give you an insight into my experiences of uni life at Bath.

I've really enjoyed my time here so far. I was quite worried when applying that the city/university might be a bit small, however I haven't had any problems with this. Having fewer students means that the university can focus more on student support. Certainly having spoken with friends at other universities there's a notable difference in the time taken by staff to help you if you're struggling.

Also, I wouldn't worry that having fewer students might harm your social life. There may not be as many bars/clubs as there are in some big cities but there's still a very good range and all it means is that you tend to bump into people you know a lot more.

The campus at Bath is really nice and most students get to live up there in their first year. I found it was a great way to meet people, as everybody lives nearby. The campus is a bit more integrated with the city than in places like Warwick as it's very close to the city centre (a 10 minute bus journey).

Someone on the thread mentioned that Bath may not have as many societies/clubs as other universities. Again, I wouldn't worry about this. When I went to one of the fairs during freshers week I was pretty overwhelmed by the number and range of sports and activities on offer. Whichever university you choose, I'd really recommend getting involved in some of these!

Hope that helps! If you've got any more questions about Bath, feel free to quote me.

Tim
