Bath/Notts > Leeds.

Personally I'd pick the more broad Bath course over the concentrated Nottingham one.

For IB, either Bath or Nottingham would be best. I did Industrial Econ at Nottingham and doing a master's now at LSE, so can answer specific questions if you have any about the course/investment banking culture/how it compares to studying in London.

Hi, thanks for the reply. What course are you doing your masters in? I am a bit concerned if the Industrial Economics course at Nottingham is going to limit my job prospects and opportunities when I graduate compared to the pure Economics course at Bath. How are you finding the job prospects after graduating from Nottingham, and do Investment Banks care much about the specific degree? I am worried if I am under achieving doing the industrial economics course at Nottingham as it is only AAB entry requirements compared to pure economics A*AA. Please let me know what you think

Yeh I agree the course is definitely better at Bath, I am just concered about the nightlife and social scene at Bath, as I enjoy going out. I think Nottingham would suit me better, but the only issue is the course.

I said in your second thread just take Nottingham then. The course is irrelevant for IB. But if you're really that hung up on it, Bristol is a 10-15 min train from Bath.
