Well as a lot of people on this site will say doing media studies is fine if its what you actually want you want to study. Don't do it because you think it may be easier than some other subjects.

I know that and believe me it wasn't easy at A level standard so a degree wont be any easier. It is what I want to do if not I wouldn't be picking it.

Thats good then, I think you would be better of studying at Essex uni if you can get in though, Essex has good respect from employees in and fairly high in the league tables. I have never heared of Sussex college until you mentioned it. Why have you limited your university choices to just two? do you want to live at home?

Well just make sure you get loads of work experience because I'm not saying it is an easy course but I know from people that have done media that it does hamper your job prospects because people think its a dosser degree. Mind you they also think English is a dosser degree.

Done an English degree, doing a law postgrad.
When I did English I lived with 3 media types in my second year and I know a few from home too.
Believe me some people think anything arts is a dossers subject, obviously I dont agree. I was asked by an interviewer once why I didnt do something more academic. English is academic GRRR!

Sorry I meant Suffolk College. I also had a limited choice as I live at home too the only 3 places that do my course near me are Bolton, Manchester Met and Salford. I decided on Salford as its the only traditional uni out of them three. Much to my annoyance though Manchester Met is two places about Salford in the league tables

Becuase of the new tuition fees my brother will be staying at home and when he wants to go he wants to do media studies, so he'll be picking between these three too. I think he'll choose man met as it's closer and is joining with manc uni.

It'd make more sense if it was man met, tey're right next door to each other and have similar courses.
