    im really worried at the moment as results gets closer and iv declined my offers and wiating for clearing. i have a feeling good universities with business management courses wont be on clearing (although im still hoping) but if i cant find business there may be a little different course related available for e.g. geography and business management. do youthink this is a good idea as i havt done geography since year 8 and il only be choosing it because it is the only thing closest to business management? also what do they teach roughly like how do they go together and also what career does this lead to?

    Why did you decline your offers? Try not to worry. I wouldn't do anything "just for the sake of doing it" though, because you could always take a gap year?

    Well, stereotypically not all that ... intellectually taxing. Lacking true doss subjects to ridicule i tend to resort to geography bashing.

    Yep :yes:

    All of the ones I listed however, unfortunately for the OP are unlikely to be in Clearing.

    Cambridge and Imperial certainly don't. I'll look into Oxford brb...

    EDIT: Can't find it on any course lists and have never heard of anyone studying it.

    I think you misunderstood the point of my and nexttime's [rhetorical] questions. None out of Cambridge, Oxford, York, Imperial or St Andrews offer Business Studies/Business Management. I haven't checked the others though, but really... that's very misleading information you're giving.

    It has a business school (SAID), although I don't think they offer "business studies" they do offer the usual postgraduate degrees (eg MBA) and undergrad programmes like economics and management.

    Cambridge's business school don't offer undergraduate programmes although there is the management tripos for final year students.

    I wouldn't advise doing business with another random subject as you'd still have to study and pass the random subject.

    Management which is considered very close to Business Management AFAIK
    http://www.york.ac.uk/management/
    York's there...
    Oxford offers EEM etc.

    And the others offer similar management-type courses!
    I could be wrong in lumping Management in with Business, but they are offered at those universities.

    If they are too disimilar, I'll take that though!

    Indeed - i would imagine an/ E&Mist would be very quick to correct anyone saying they do 'business studies' though!

    Durham may have places for Business in clearing but I wouldn't bank on it. It's appeared in clearing before and, being one of the Queens Campus programmes, is more likely to be in clearing than the particularly heavily oversubscribed Durham courses.

    Whether other "good" universities have places in clearing really depends on what you consider good.

    I advise against chosing a joint programme. If you don't have any interest in geography and haven't studied it in so many years. What they teach will vary significantly from university to university (and, in the case of geography, whether physical, human or a mixture of both).

    As for career opportunities then the same as Geography or Business on their own. Management/consultancy, retail, teaching, merchant banking. For Geography teaching, planning/surveying (although an RTPI/RICS accredited postgrad degree will be necessary), environmental consultant and many more. A significant number of graduate jobs don't ask for a specific degree subject.

    There's always the chance that, once at university, you'll be able to transfer to business only but then this is a risk as although transfer are usually allowed there's a quota and they're competitive. You have no right to change course.

    If you can't find the programme of your choice at a decent uni then I think it's far more sensible and mature to take a year out and re-apply.
