This really depends on what you mean - top 10 for career prospects, academia, nightlife, accommodation etc?

If you mean top 10 overall academic Unis I would say in no particular order

Cambridge, Oxford, Warwick, LSE, Durham, UCL, Nottingham, Bath, St Andrews and Leeds. But there are many other good Unis out there and this isn’t an exhaustive list. What’s more important is which course, place, and vibe suits you most. Good luck!

career prospects in investment banking/high-end finance is completely unrelated to degree choice- you just need to go to either oxford, cambridge, lse, ucl, imperial college london or warwick and start networking/doing internships.

The same list above then applies and I agree with Levi_ that Oxbridge, Warwick and LSE are your best bets, and UCL, Imperial and Durham would also be good.

Oxbridge, LSE, UCL, Warwick, Nottingham are probably the best. Other good places include Edinburgh, Bath, St Andrews, Manchester, Bristol, Durham.

But some universities have different specialisms that might interest you, e.g. development economics at Sussex/SOAS is strong. Nottingham and Warwick are quite good for industrial organisation related research, etc.

Maybe so, but the question was about the best places to study an economics degree, which makes Imperial irrelevant.

UPF and UAB are pretty well known for their econ courses in Spain - would you not consider these?

Not at all, it is much cheaper study in UK and with a pro that is I will probably finish the degree with a quite quite good English

Hey!

I'm Charlie, one of the Lancaster University student ambassadors on here. I am currently in my 2nd year of a degree in Finance and Economics, basically 50% Accounting & Finance with 50% Economics.

I really enjoy my degree ad would highly recommend Lancaster for both my degree and also as an enjoyable student experience.

Here is a link to our page about all of our rankings:
https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/wh...nd-reputation/

As you can see we are a triple top 10!

To show I'm not just being bias here is the link to independent date about our performance:
https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...er/performance

If you have any specific questions, about academia or student life here at Lancaster, please feel free to reply or send me a DM!

Charlie
