Hi, these are the course I have applied to(some received offers from), could you please tell me which would give me the best shot of getting an internship/job? I also enjoy maths so guiding me to which courses are the most mathematical would be great.

Bristol: Economics and Finance BSc (Should I switch to Economics and Maths? Didn't take further maths which could be a problem, so maybe too much pure maths as would prefer it applied to economics. Which to employers prefer the pure maths or the finance?)

Manchester: Economics BSc (wide range of modules to choose from such as time series analysis, mathematical finance...)

Nottingham: Financial Mathematics BSc (wide range of modules to choose from such as time series analysis)

Durham: Finance BSc

York: Economics, Econometrics and Finance BSc ( While york may not be as prestigious as the others, the course looks great. Great spread of modules most compulsory, such as time series...)

My opinion of where I would order them from the best to not as good:

1: Bristol (not sure about switching though from Economics and Finance to Economics and maths? I know some of the hedge funds such as Citadel greatly appreciate statistics. The modules are very restricted in choice. Being a BSc I assume the course is mathematical but I'm not sure when looking at the modules.)

Link to modules for Economics and Mathematics:http://www.bristol.ac.uk/unit-progra...Code=9ECON005U

Link to modules for Economic and Finance: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/unit-progra...Code=9ECON019U

2: Nottingham/ Manchester/ York (Dont think there is much between them).

3: Durham (I know Durham is more prestigious than some of the others, but looking back on the course I chose it doesn't look as heavily mathematical and also doesn't have any statistical modeling modules. But the modules do look great.)

I know there's a lot here so responses are greatly appreciated!

Edit: From the employers perspective, is it more beneficial to have a degree in a single honurs, so just straight economics from bristol as you get more depth into the subject?
