    Just wondering what options are available to me in the Finance sector.

    I study maths at UEA so it's not a top uni, and to break into finance it seems everyone is from the best unis in the country. I have a little work experience (1 week at Barclays, Thomson Reuters and BAE systems) but that's about it.

    So if anyone could give me some hints, and if UEA isn't good enough just be real with me idm. Also what other options are there? I'm quite open to anything, I'm a pretty sociable person and just looking for something with decent pay.

    I live in London and would very much like to stay in the city.

    thanks in advance

    What sort of jobs are you considering? There is a separate section of this forum for investment banking if that is your area of interest.

    To make up for not being in a target, you need to be applying early for the 1st/2nd year programmes to stand a chance. And try to enter via middle/back office functions for big banks, or any programme at Big 4
