Congrats on your offers, if you're really stuck between the two you can take a look at student satisfaction stats on unistats and it also shows a little bit about career expectations.

finance at Durham !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any reasons? The only thing I was worried about is that Durham is known to be quite posh and doesn't have a good nightlife compared to notts

Also would econ and finance at leeds be better regarded than durham finance? Leeds' econ courses are ran by the business school that's the main negative I can find

Southampton has a far better faculty in terms of academics but I’m not sure what you are choosing based on.

Durham is a better uni than Nottingham. If you want to work in finance or consulting I guess finance at Durham would be a good idea.

I disagree I think Bristol is slightly better but not much in it
Hi guys, I’m an offer holder for econ at both Bristol and Nottingham. I’m aware that roughly they are the same in job prospects and the only thing separating them is the student life. What would you recommended. I am from london so I feel like a city is nice but also think Nottingham is also a very nice place with a beautiful campus. Any opinions? Ty.
