Tell me some because I'm making 650 a week now and don't want to go to university to earn less especially considering I don't have expenses as still live at home.

My job requires no training, experience, so I'll be dismayed if I go to univeristy get indebted and earn less. Downsides of my job are that no scale for progression and it might not be sustainable years down the line.

Economics or Accounting & Finance degree.
At an investment bank, grads make 75k pounds (90k usd) in the first year. Of course, to get that money you need banks like JP Morgran. To get there, you need a good school like LSE. to get to lse, you need perfect A levels and gcses

From my research banks like JP and GS give starting salaries of 45k where you can hope to make 10k in bonuses. Making 50k in London is like making 35k where I live. When I consider rent, travel, tax I'll have 1k I can save a month. I can save more now and have a better lifestyle. My hours atm are 60-80 hour weeks with £8-12 an hour. Banking hours are even crazier. Say I do 100 hour weeks for 55k a year that's only £10.58 an hour. Ha. Barely makes London's living wage.

The money potential keeps on increasing and the hours stabalise at less than 100. Getting into an IB is pretty much impossible due to the large competition though.

No degree 'leads to' 35k. In Europe starting salaries for grads are like 24k. If you want to make that much as a starting salary it's statistically unlikely.

If you join the Army as an Officer, starting pay during training is around £30k and then increases to £40k+ when you reach Captain, which is about 3-4 years into your career.

Majors make around £52k. May seem like a long time but get to the higher ranks and you'll be easily making £100k+

Better off just looking into other ways to make money in your free time, mate. Matched betting, Forex or Crypto trading, stock marketing, stuff like that. It can prove to be very lucrative if you've got good cashflow to start up with - a lot of folks end up cutting their work hours or even quitting work completely if they get good at one of these and make a lot of cash from them. I only work 16 hours a week myself and the rest of my money I make up from dabbling in these sorts of things and I'm doing pretty well for myself.

Am aware. But is it worth the sacrifice of my 20s. It's hard but not as hard as in the US I think especially for other ibanks

Is this £650/w post or pre tax? I currently make £400-550 a day but I'm self employed and still in university so it's not technically a full committed job.

Am doing got a lot of books to get through before I start investing though. If I can have 200k saved by 30-35 I hope to "retire" and live off multiple streams of income.

That's pretty incorrect. My sister earns £10k/month as a contractor/KYC analyst working in Luxembourg and her academic resume is agreeably sub-par

We're in the UK, not Luxembourg. Nobody asked about salaries in other countries.

Ofc. But I need to be in the right field otherwise I'd end up as a zoologist making 20k a year

You've got the right idea, there are a lot of people who dive into investing too quickly, don't make any profits and then give it up because they're crap at it. You can never do too much reading when it comes to this stuff.
