    I'm currently thinking of doing a combined honours degree in music and English literature, with the prediction of getting A*AA at A level. Does anyone know of any good courses, or where the degree could lead me in the future? Thanks

    Music can take you pretty much anywhere you'd like it to. Among my cohort, we have people studying law and medicine as well as people working for big firms like PwC and other City firms. This is alongside those who are becoming professional performers, school teachers, musical theatre directors. There are also those working in office administration and finally, those doing further study. These are just the people I know about as well. What of the people in my year who I don't have on Facebook? Who knows!

    I imagine English to be similarly versatile :yes:

    Some of the prestigious Music departments that offer the joint honours course you want are Bangor, Birmingham, Cardiff, Durham (I think), Leeds, Liverpool (I think), Newcastle (I think), Sheffield and Southampton. I've no idea what their English departments are like though.

    Hope that helps a bit
