Well I didn't have any plans to go to Bournemouth because they take you solely on grades a friends of mine applied with B's in English, Media, Psychology and another friend with Maths, Biology, Spanish with A's and the second friend got in even though it was nothing like she had done before ...she dropped out as well lol
Middlesex is an ex-polytechnic I would rather go there than Bournemouth anyway, my main ambition is to be in London, though London College of Printing is top of my list.

Whats Middlesex like?
Dani, Middlesex really isn't that well regarded for Journalism & Media related courses... eg in the paper today:

I watched Margaret Hodge explaining on Channel 4 News to a panel why it was such a splendid idea that so many people should go to University. On the panel was the obligatory unemployed graduate, an Asian girl who had just finished a Media and Cultural Studies degree from Middlesex University.

Seven months after graduation, and mired in debt, she was unable to find a job. When asked why this poor girl was unable to pay her debts, the Minister played the race card, arguing that institutionalised discrimination locked her out of employment. That's *******s. I don't think that girl is unemployed because she's Asian. I think she's unemployed because she's got a first in Media and Cultural Studies from Middlesex University and she doesn't have the skills or the ability to get a job that pays enough to reduce her debts.


Where else u applied ?

Middlesex is where I was born, North London. It's the only place I found that did Journalism and Communication Studies together.

And then vice versa!

You must be thick then because i've heard of it. Look at the website, seems like quite a decent uni judging from the website information:

Lol, Jools I'm not really bothered, I don't really want to go to Middlesex nor did I want to go to Bournemouth. But the Unconditional offer at Middlesex has to say that somewhere slightly better is hopefully gonna offer me something...*cough* LCP *cough*. Besides I doubt that girl had any contacts like I do, not to mention work experience at the BBC. Hell she may not even be able to write and got through with sheer luck.
As for Bournemouth. Bournemouth just isn't ready for me

My flatmate is doing a postgrad in journalism I think they do an undergrad here too but I dont know how good it is. Most of my friends that have gone into journalism have had degrees in other subjects and then gone into it after graduation, so I'm not sure whats good for journalism.

I thought if you couldn't find a job, you don't need to pay the debts until you do find one and start earning £12 000 salary or more.

Dani will succeed in journalism whatever - if you read her PS you would understand why - speaking of which now that the deadline's past why not post it onsite for a little while (and back up my blind faith with some evidence )

A lot of students also have grad bank loans. I havent had one but my friend did to get a car to further her job prospects and you have to pay quite a bit back per month whether you are earning or not.
