Hello,

I know the target universities are Oxbridge, LSE, UCL, Imperial, and Warwick.
However, I am only applying to LSE from those universities and plan to apply to more semi-targets. Could you please let me know the more popular semi-targets and rank them if possible.

Thanks!

No point in ranking them specifically, although Durham seems to stand out. Bath, Bristol, Nottingham, Kings college london, Edinburgh and maybe Exeter/st andrews come to mind. Is there a reason you’re not applying to Warwick/UCL?

I'm looking to do a pure finance course, initially, I really liked Warwick as a uni, but they only offer A+F. UCL has a Finance, Economics and Stats course but it requires A - level Further Maths. (I currently do Maths, Econ, History and completed an EPQ) LSE also requires Further Maths for Finance, but I'm just gonna give it a go anyways (1/5 choices so not really bothered)

Why are you specifically wanting to study finance? It’s not a particularly desirable course for IB but itd get the job done I suppose. Afaik, accounting is an aspect of IBD. Not to sure how sizeable it is though.

I just prefer the finance courses - most of them generally do have some elements of econ, acc & stats anyways.

I speak from applying to/studying Economics, but after the ones you mentioned the other unis who have a lot of grads going into IB are Bath, Durham, Bristol, Nottingham, Exeter, King's and also the top Scottish unis (mainly St Andrews and Edinburgh). Hope this helps
