    Hi! I have one choice left in my application and I can't decide whether I should apply for International Relations with Economics at the University of Birmingham or for Economics and Politics at the University of Sheffield. I like both courses a lot.
    The positions of these universities vary amongst league tables and there are a lot of different opinions. Which one would be better regarded by employers?
    Unfortunately I can't come visit as I live in Finland, so any comments on the cities and campuses are also welcome.

    Thank you!

    Employers in the UK don't tend to put much emphasis on league tables except for maybe law and investment banking. What they do look for is work experience and a strong application. Whether employers in Finland are any different I don't know. So concentrate on the course content and facilities, accomodation e.c.t
