I want a career in the museum and gallery industry, which I have heard can be a very competitive, but not particularly high paying career. As far as I can tell, my only chance to get a decent job in the sector is by getting an Undergrad degree in something like Art History, then maybe a masters in Museum Studies etc.
However, I am currently doing my A Levels, and there is a high chance that I will not get the grades I need to attend a decent university for Art History, such as Exeter, and therefore may not be able to get into the sector because of the competition, apart from volunteering jobs which don't pay.
This is the career I know I will enjoy the most, but I can't see any other way to get into the industry? I could probably get into a lower university such as Plymouth, but my chances of getting a decent job after seem to be so low that the massive student debts aren't worth it!
What can I do?
Is University my only chance?
