    You should be thinking about the difference between course content between the three (which do you prefer?) and where you could see yourself living for three years.

    There is hardly any difference between the three universities.

    Stop looking at rankings.

    All three are excellent institutions and well respected.

    Employers don't care where you got your degree from - especially in this case seeing there is very little difference between the three.

    - Look at the modules they offer
    - Work placement opportunities (Bath is known for having excellent support for sandwich years)
    - See how the university "feels" to you
    - Do they offer bursaries/scholarships?

    Accountancy and Finance isn't really an academic degree. It's leaning towards a vocational one.

    thank you. And how come Bath uni is ranked approx. 10th in the UK and bristol is 19th in the UK. But in the world ranking bath is ranked lower than bristol? How does this make any sense

    Different rankings use different algorithms to generate an index. Don't worry about it.

    Because the rankings are **** and should largely be ignored.
