Warwick or Bristol

hello
I am an international student and have hust received offer letters from both Warwick and Bristol for Bsc in Economics and Politics. I am doing my research yet I am not entirely sure which of these is betger for my course. Also I want to know about the university in general and which one is better for international students both in lifestyle and finance. I am open to more advice though but I am mainly concerned about the better choice regarding my course. Also which uni has better on campus jobs etc.

Warwick is better for career prospects and rent, but Bristol has a much better social life and is a better city overall.

warwick is a target in finance, bristol a semi target, but bristol is still a good uni, warwick just better for that course by some margin

Hi ! I am debating between firming Bristol Durham or Warwick, I am leaning towards Bristol despite it technically being the lowest ranking of the three because from all research i've done/ people in the industry i've spoken to have said that employers view the unis with very marginal difference and so it matters more whether you get a first or 2:1 and also what additional experience you have, e.g. internships. Another thing to bare in mind is Bristol's actually seems to be higher ranking on an international stage compared to Warwick, while this is most likely due to its high research output, this is something you may want to consider :smile:

there is not too much difference between bristol and durham in finance, but warwick is the winner as a target

I should have specified, my initial degree is going to be an Msci in biology/ natural sciences but I hope/plan to move into finance later on so I thought it wouldn't make a difference? - please correct me if I am wrong as I am still trying to make a decision, thank you!

think going to warwick would give you an advantage in either case, but all of them are top unis so cant go too wrong
