Just wanted to find out from you how the Economics BSc Course at City is rated? In terms of getting a job and going into Postgrad study at somewhere like LSE or UCL
Ive heard its got very good Job Opportunities but is this true of Economic Graduates? As in do they go off into good jobs, I dont mean Ivestment Banking just yet as anyone could work up to it and I want to do postgrad study anyway at LSE or something but coming straight out of Uni do they get offered Grad level Jobs with like good start pay rates (23k - 26k starting rate etc...) Also, is the Uni good in terms of Rep, its like around 25th I believe in the Guardian League Tables and around 40 in Times all in all not bad, not top notch but decent place to study for average student like me, and besides I want to carry on after at Postgrad (Look at last paragraph)
Dont really care about the Student Union not running any parties and being a bit crap as your in the heart of London and right next to Barbican with a shed load of clubs! So as long as there is a SU that listens to Students Im happy
Teachers/Lecturers good as in do you feel as if they care or do they just blabber on?
I love the location and as I just live south of London, In Surrey, commuting there wont be a problem (like 15mins to Morden Tube Station - Northern Line - From my house). This is has made me like it even more as Im a sort of family guy and moving out would kinda be hard, I would probably spend my first year living out at Uni at one of the halls but the thought of going up north to something like Manchester or Birmingham is rather daunting and I'd prefer to be at least in the same city as my parents, so at least they'll know Im studying and not partying my arse off lol!
So all in all, would love to hear from some people doing the course and people who have DONE the course and see what their job prospects are like and/or getting into Postgrad study at some top notch Uni's such as LSE or UCL
Also lastly, is it true that City is mostly filled with Asian students, I.E Pakistani, Bengali and Indian most notably? Im Asian so this isnt a problem but I actually mix better with other races, but mix fine with anyone so this isn't really a dilemma or anything, just a question
