I intend to study Education Studies at University next year, hopefully doing a Primary PGSE later on. I was just wondering if what university i go to really matters. I picked the complete wrong set of As Levels for myself this year (very business oriented e.g. Economics, Maths, Accounting and Psychology (only subject i enjoy) and have 9 summer exams which i have been excessively stressed out about
I therefore feel i would be more suited to doing 100% coursework for my degree which only some ex-polys have e.g. Greenwich.
If i wanted to work in schools or colleges as a careers advisor etc, would where i got my degree from matter a lot?
I initially wanted to study Primary education at uni but my careers advisor (who funnily himself studied education studies at University of East London) told me it would limit my career to only primary teaching.
Any helpful advise???

I don't think a degree in Primary Education would limit you very much if the careers you're after are associated with teaching, i.e. careers advising.
Just make sure you do a degree you enjoy, that's the most important thing. You only live once.

If you really want to do Primary Education then do it. If you have a change of heart later you could always try a postgraduate?
