I have just recently completed a 2 year foundation in Graphic Design and Advertising and have the option to go back this month to study for a top-up to a (BA) hons in Graphic Design and New Media.
After taking a gap year travelling and seeing the world and having a lot of time to think I have decided I wish not to enter into Graphic Design and Advertising.
I have been told by a lot of people to do the final year as a degree will increase my employability, yet I have friends with firsts who are struggling to get a job in retail.
I have looked into completing a business apprenticeship or just entering into the working world and seeing where it takes me.
I have heard a lot of this ''no one can get a job degree or not'' and then the opposite of ''get a degree, or you have no chance''
I wish to just get opinions on my situation and maybe your personal ones?
Look forward to replies!
Is it really worth studying my final year? watch

Go ahead and do the one more year.A degree is better than none it's simple logic.

If you think it might help and you WANT to do it, then do it. But ultimately if you think you'll spend the year wishing for it to end, and feeling like it's counterproductive considering you've realised you don't want to pursue that field upon graduating, then I think you might be better off looking into something else. Don't feel like getting a degree is the be all and end all, because it isn't. If something else suits you better, then go for it
