Currently in second year at RHUL doing management with accounting. Is there anyway I can get into finance (unsure of which area) with this?

Is a masters neccessary?

finance is a very broad spectrum, what areas are you specifically interested in or have looked at?

would advise that isn't the best metric to base entry level jobs on - but it's possible but likely extremely difficult unless you're already well connected and have opportunities available to you.

commercially, big 4 audit is more mainstream and open to applicants from a wider array of backgrounds - in London I believe the pay at entry level is ~£25-28k

Middle-Office pays £40k and is definitely attainable.

Theres a lot out there that pays that much provided you have some experience and the right qualifications such as ACA, CFA, APM. You should conduct some research on financial industry, note down the sort of entry level jobs that peak your interests, as well as what others go on to do afterwards.

Most companies wont require a specific subject to be taken at degree level (e.g. big 4, IB banks).
