I've studied at an engineering course (1st year) for the last year at a decent UK university but due to some family matters, I'm having to move to another university closer to home( and starting from 1st year again). This is one of the London unis which is very highly ranked for electrical engineering and although not so highly ranked, apparently very respectable for physics too. Having spent the last year studying engineering, I am certain that I would much rather do a course in physics and the university offers a theoretical physics course which sounds just like what I'd like to do. I plan on graduating with a masters degree no matter whether I do the physics or engineering course. Ideally, I'd like to work in finance, specifically front office investment banking. The uni I will be attending is considered on of the top 5 investment banking 'target' unis. So with regards to extra curricular for finance interest etc, I should be ok. I've heard from forums, friends and relatives, that for the jobs I'm interested in (and most other fields too assuming finance doesn't work out) engineering is much more employable and sort after. My question is, do you think I'd be closing a lot of door with regards to employment prospects by taking the physics course instead of the engineering one?
