    According to someone I know at LSE. They said after talking to some banks, friends and their Uncle. Supposedly Bristol has better links (I am guessing they mean alumni or maybe just reputation) then Warwick. I was kind of surprised. Is this kind of true? In the sense Bristol getting more competitive/targeted or does it not really matter that much in the end (but with the mentality I have atm, it does matter be it a small difference). Yes, I know Warwick is considered a target and Bristol is semi-target but I just wanted to ask this question.

    Too much networking leads to this sort of misinformation. His opinion is purely anecdotal and there is good reason. Warwick is a target but Bristol isnt so Bristol students will generally have to be more out there to get opportunities.

    Thank you all for the replies.


    I am a little lost on my insurance. I have CASS and Bristol but I am thinking of putting down CASS due to the location factor. Any thoughts?

    both semis, both good. would argue that bristol is a bit more reputed overall but the specialisation of cass (assuming you take one of their finance courses) is useful. bottom line comes down to what course you're interested & your specific liking of the uni/surrounding area.. but in-terms of opportunities for careers in finance, so long as you apply yourself you should be okay.

    wouldn't worry about location factor, as banks will visit your campus at either place, and travelling for interviews and what not, isn't that much of an issue. gl

    pm for any questions/more info. have friends at both unis who are involved in the banking-related field.
