I’m considering this programme and I wonder is it renowned in London? Or will it help me to find a finance or consulting related job in London?

Hi, Queen mary is not a target or even a semi target really. Furthermore the course only requires a 2:2 and charges nearly 21K, seems like a bit of a money grab to me to be honest. What was your undergrad score? You'll probably be better off doing a masters from Warwick, Exeter or Bristol etc.

I don’t think I can reach 2:1, maybe close but I’m almost certain that I cannot reach it. I’m also considering Exeter and confused about which is better in this field, from a career perspective. Are there lots of good companies holding recruiting fairs in Exeter?

I would say Exeter is better, definitely more of a semi target. My friend went there, loads of investment banks and consultancies visited often, in my internship class there were 2 from exeter and none from queen mary. One advantage of Queen mary though is it's location. Also I know league tables aren't everything but they are an indicator, Exeter is 12th Queen mary is 35th on the complete university guide. What Exeter course were you considering? Overall I would go for Exeter, the courses are also cheaper.

For Exeter is Finance and Management, still a 2:2 requirement programme I guess. I’m confused more about the QS rankings because Queen Mary ranked better. And what about Newcastle?

Look at the modules in both the course, they are 2 different courses and see which you prefer, for non-banking finance roles both courses will be good enough, Exeter's course is far cheaper (around 6 grand cheaper).

I saw the difference but I’m thinking that if QMUL is not renowned enough then even I study corporate finance thing I still couldn’t be able to get into a good company to do the relative work as you said QMUL is not a target school. So both pathways are okay cause what I’m concerned most is employment. Confused...
