    I'm an international applicant, and I'm wondering if going to a university with a Skillset accreditation matters more to an employer and if it increases your chances of getting into the industry.

    I'd also like to know which university is 'better' in terms of Television Production:
    Goldsmiths, University of London
    University of York
    University of Westminster

    Thank you!

    Excellent question ontrheseashores.

    Let me answer it this way - for those employers who look at where you studied and what course you did, Skillset accreditaion is important as it lends that course some level of validity. However the majority of employers do not look at where you studied nor what you studied there.

    Your course and institution are largely unimportant, almost the only thing that counts is the real industry experience you have got.
