Hi, I've just got a few offers on UCAS from Manchester and Bristol and I'm not quite certain on whether I should choose to study pure economics L100 or economics and finance LN13. In the future, I'm looking to work in Investment Banking so I was wondering which degree would suit this best.

Thank you in advance 😊

Maybe look at the degree and see what modules intrigue you the most. However I dont know which one would suit that type of work the best

Probably whichever is at Bristol. I read somewhere about them both being ‘semi-targets’ but Bristol is slightly more targeted. I don’t think it will make a huge difference. Although Bristol is meant to be really maths heavy if that’s something you want/ want to avoid

Hey!

I'm Charlie, one of the Lancaster University student ambassadors on here. I'm currently in my 2nd year of a degree in Finance & Economics.

Here at Lancaster the course is basically broken down into 50% Finance & Economics modules with 50% Economics modules.

As a student who is also hoping to go in to the corporate banking / investment banking world, I find that my degree is really helpful. I think both elements of my degree compliment each other well and help me to gain a better overall view of the economy. One of my modules in particular "Introduction To Asset Pricing" goes into detail about putting together investment portfolios.

I have about 14hrs of contact hrs a week, this being made up of lectures, drop-ins and workshops/tutorials. I would highly recommend my degree!

If you have any other questions about the degree or would like to know more about Lancaster University let me know!

Charlie

Thank you so much for your replies everyone .

After reading through all of them, it seems like I will definitely be firming Bristol to study Economics and finance. I looked into the “Semi target” thing and yeah, Bristol seems to be in the top 10 unlike Manchester.

Thanks Charlie as well in helping me decide, great to talk to someone else who is also doing the same degree and enjoying it, which also helped me come to a decision.
