Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I gather the title makes me sound really ungrateful- and I probably am being incredibly ungrateful.
    I got my BTEC grades through and was given an unconditional place at UWE. But I got rejected from Southampton (the uni I wanted to go to for literally years) and I can't help but worry that because I was disappointed by that result is going to affect how much I enjoy UWE, which looks like a really great place to go. Anyone been in a similar situation to this/ have any words of encouragement/ want to tell me to sort my s*it out?

    Have you gone to visit UWE, maybe going there and having a good time will get you more exciting about going. If not, you could ring Southampton and ask if they'll let you in through clearing
