@Batiatus: I'm guessing you want to pursue a role in the Banking and financial services domain, so kudos on making the right decision.

On the other hand, I'm quite shocked that the school released such detailed statistics. Well done to them. Maybe I can help break down the stats a bit further.

Out of the 13 recruiters mentioned for the 2013 batch, 4C Associates, DBS singapore, Manulife, Network Rail and Samsung were sourced by the students themselves. Call Credit, FSA and Lincoln were sourced through the school. I'm not sure which category CapGemini and Santander lie in. UMIP was a project.

The 7 Indians in finance number also doesn't add up. The definition of finance here has been taken to encompass a a very broad area and clearly doesn't refer to only banking and financial services.

Keep in mind that the 2012 batch had the PSW visa, which you guys won't have access to anymore. Things are even tougher if you are looking to change careers. Please take an informed decision as this is probably the biggest decision of your life.

Thank you so much for this detailed but "to the point" information. I must say this is probably the most meaningful details on placement I saw. Thank you so much.

I believe the situation is more or less the same in all schools in UK.

2012 performed extremely well as there was HSMP.

2013 was not so bad as economy was still kicking.

2014, or current batch is in real hot spot. My discussions with other schools share the same outlook.

All schools in Uk having this problem for international students. if schools tries to tell you a different story, ask them to provide details like "batiatus" and enjoy their reluctance!!

Hope we will see some green shoots soon!!

Thanks Batiatus for sharing this raw data
