    Before I start, I’m not talking about film studies, media studies or any other theory related degree. I am talking about television PRODUCTION!!!!
    I would like people that have or are studying a vocational media course to comment. No no-it all’s please.

    I'm sick, beyond sick, I mean actually vomiting in my lap sick of people like me coming on this forum and asking if a media course is worth doing. What I’m even more sick of is the way people reply to these threads. They appear to have no firsthand experience and shoot the name of the media degree down in flames with no backup up or evidence for their reaction other then what they have read in the Daily Mail(sorry for the rant).
    Now, I’m 25, just given up my job and am currently studying a BTEC in media PRODUCTION with the intention of studying Television Production at Uni. I had a fairly well paid job; earning over £24,000 a year.
    What I want to know is not if you think a Television PRODUCTION degree is a "doss" but if you have any genuine firsthand experience. Is there any one on this forum that instead of saying “do English lit, it’s more valuable to your career progression” or "people that do media are just in it for an easy ride" can give me some real god damn advice!!!!!!
    Is a Television PRODUCTION degree that disrespected?
    I have a desired career progression, I’m sure of where I want to be in five years..... I want to be in television. I know I will start from the very very bottom, I have already carried out numerous runner roles.
    I’m not a pipe dreamer, I’ll get there.
    DO I NEED A BLOODY DEGREE OR WILL I BE LAUGHED AT FOR THE REST OF MY CAREER FOR WASTING FIVE YEARS OF MY LIFE AND LOTS OF MONEY?
