A different question as well is would people recommend an MSc in Finance over an MSc in Economics with the aim of going into finance afterwards? I have heard conflicting things from multiple people. Some saying that finance masters act as a 'cash cow' for unis. Others saying that it would be very helpful.
Need more help on going postgrad?
I am on the SGPE, I personally wouldn't recommend it. Very large tutorial sizes, (80 students) and very limited one-to-one help. You may be fine if your maths skills are very good, but the course is very intensive with little support available. Pros: Good Uni name, and PhD opportunities if you pass as it's well respected.
Which optional modules did you pick and how did you find them?
What sort of unis had the rest of your UK based cohort come from for their undergrad?
How tough was the maths, would you be able to get by if you were okay with maths at undergrad and was most of the maths in the econometrics modules?
Do you wish you took up an MSc Economics at a different uni and if so which did you have offers from?
What was your undergrad course and which university was it at? Did you have any internships?
