    Which is better?

    I'm looking at firming either Bristol or KCL for the BSc Economics atm and I'm not sure which one to choose.

    The KCL BSc Economics is new so there isn't much info about the course, but I'm quite sure that I want to go to a London uni.

    Also, I'm considering a career in banking afterward, so which uni would be better suited to helping me achieve that?

    Both amazing unis. In terms of banking; both have pros. Bristol is a target university for Investment Banks and KCL is a semi-target. KCL is in London though which brings benefits in terms of the City.

    What do you mean by benefits in terms of the city?

    Oh I see what you mean. So at stuff like careers events with the uni, more likely to be bankers there just bcus it's close.

    well sort of yeah but remember that Bristol is a target for IBs and thus will be looked upon very favorably when applying for spring weeks etc. you can't really go wrong with either choice though; good luck

    If you're sure about wanting to be in London for uni, since they're both great unis it makes sense to go for KCL. Bear in mind you don't really get the classic 'uni experience' in London. you might also find it a bit easier practically to go through the banking application process e.g. you wont be moving cities for a summer or have to travel for interviews
