    I'm considering a Masters degree in Journalism and I would like to know what everyone thinks about the advantages and disadvantages of Goldsmiths and Cardiff. I know that Cardiff has a great reputation, but so does Goldsmiths for being a really creative university. I also know that both courses are small and intimate, and Goldsmiths is less economical but based in London, which would be great for employment prospects...but Cardiff is a much more economical option but with less employment prospects? Also, Cardiff has a number of specialisms of journalism, ranging from international, to broadcast to magazine and newspaper...

    I'm interested in working for CNN or a magazine after university...so my question is, which course would help me the most?

    Thanks in advance for any responses, I'm literally going crazy thinking about all the options! X

    Hi ! Last year I was considering both these options, but as I didn't want to live in Wales and couldn't afford London, I chose to apply to universities in Manchester and Glasgow, and ended up accepting a place for the mlitt digital journalism at strathclyde . I researched the issue a lot, and I found out that it doesn't really matter ( that) much where (location) you study when it comes to job prospects, because at the end of the day most people end up moving away from where they studied to get a job. But I guess you'd get more opportunities for sure in London, but the one at Cardiff seems to be focusing more on one aspect of journalism. Sorry I've never been to any of these two schools obviously but that's just my opinion
