Industry experience is important, but I think it depends on interview as well, most people look into soft skills, attitude, therefore now its even easier to switch between industries.(Original post by Roving Fish)
I think that actually having a job in industry is worth more than the salary anyway. I'm happy to live off £1.2k take-home pay as it'll give me a lot more money per month than I've had before. Getting a nice flat still.
One thing that grads, or third-years forget is that the industry want industry experience. A lot will go home to find themselves a bit more and work a retail job, which isn't really that helpful in getting them a job in their field.
Remember that you need to ensure that you're happy about the course. There are a few articles on TSR that you should read before you make choices for uni. I can dig out some reading for you if you want.
I'm an arts/media uni student with a graduate job AMA.
