Best non Russel universities for economics and/or finance and accounting? (In London or around London)
Why “non-russell group”. The best universities in that category will have entry requirements higher than many RG universities.

There’s too many things limiting me…
- possibly grades
- i can’t go beyond London
- overlapping subjects
- all of them require maths

Any decent economics degree is going to require maths. It’s a quantitative subject.

Sadly, I didn’t take it because I didn’t know what to do at the beginning of year 12, so I think a non Russel uni may be better as they apparently teach all the maths needed in first year
What is it about an economics degree that appeals to you?
Do you have any thoughts about what you would like to do after university?

City Uni, Bayes Business School, is perhaps the best non-RG in London for business related degrees, plus they don't need A-level maths, but entry requirement are AAA. Depends what grades you have.

Economics at City uni however only requires BBB and has no maths requirement, so that's maybe a good option.

I don’t think I’ve ever come across a non Russel uni that required AAA, do you know what the reason for this is??

And thank youu

Bath and St Andrews often require higher than AAA and are both non RG. It is down to how competitive a university is and what they feel they need to fill their places.
