Postgraduate Studies or not


Would I have a chance of getting onto these courses and would they be helpful in applying to work in an investment bank

Real estate economics and finance - LSE
Business analytic and consulting - Warwick
Msc management - UCL

some info
I will not be taking a gmat test, as such have avoided straight MSc finance courses at the top unis
My grade for second year was 74% average from a Russell group university studying economics, so predicted a first

So what would you say are my chances are of gaining admission and whether the courses are beneficial

Also any recommendation on other universities to apply to with the UK?

within the UK?
How about Oxbridge?

I don't get what you are saying about the gmat.

Anyway, it will probably be good for you to apply for banking without postgrad as well as apply for postgrad opportunities.

Assuming you can only go to the 3 programs listed above
If you want to focus on real estate, go to LSE
If you want to do something else/more general, the other two might help you more
