BSc MORSE at Warwick or Southampton?Watch
I’m thinking of applying for a MORSE degree at these two universities. They have the same grade requirements (apart from Warwick wanting you to take a step exam). But will Warwick look better to employers than Southampton? Personally I’m kind of leaning towards soton but I’d like to hear some opinions. Also if you study at these universities and especially if you study MORSE what do you think?
There’s a decent chance I wont get an offer for Warwick though, as I don’t take further maths, although I’m taking the AEA maths exam, which they list in their alternative offers section as also being acceptable. (Currently have grades A*A*A for reference) So if I get an offer from Warwick and Southampton i’ll likely firm Warwick and set Southampton as insurance.
(Taking STEP would’ve meant teaching myself AS further maths and I’m already behind enough with school because of lockdown whcih is the reason I’m doing the AEA and not STEP btw)
Also, I’m set on being an actuary, and with MORSE at Warwick they clearly state that you can gain all 6 exam exemptions for the basic actuarial exams, but Southampton doesn’t make it very clear at all what exemptions they can provide.
