University course choice

Good morning, I've had some doubts about university course choices for my son. His firm choice is at UCL studying Economics and Business with East European Studies, and his second choice is Bath University studying Economics. Which do you think is the best course? Is it possible now to invert the order for September?

Hello Vittoria

I can't tell you which is the better course. You can look on the league tables to see which university does better in these subject areas, but remember that league tables don't tell all the story.

Also, have a look at the specific content for each course. Which is your son more interested in/able to study for three-four years?

As to changing the order... has your son already make his UCAS application? In which case wait for results day and see if he is accepted for both choices. You can then make your decision.

League tables:
Business and management studies: www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/league-tables...s

Economics: www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/league-tables...s

Course content:

www.bath.ac.uk/study/ug/prospectus/subject/economi...s

I hope this helps!

Best wishes.
Cicely
