    Hi everybody,

    I hold offers both from Durham and Bristol for Msc Finance and Investment. After graduation I would like to purse a career in corporate finance.

    I did not apply to any of the "target unis" mainly because of the costs, tuition with higher living costs (applying to London based unis) would add up to almost triple for what I'll pay for the above.

    Which uni would you recommend based on course content, quality of teaching and university recognition? My long term plan is to gain some work experience in London and then get some job in my home sides in Europe, so I am interested how the reputation reflects in London as well as internationally.

    I would prefer go to Bristol, because of the course content that slightly better suits my interests, proximity to London and better academic reputation. I am keen to discover subject in dept, also from academic perspective, and improve my quantitive and qualitative research and application. Or is there any other university you would recommend above these two

    Thank you in advance.

    You've answered your own question: Bristol. Things like recognition mean little so focus on the content.
