    Hi everyone,

    Im Hannah. I studied archaeology at A-level, now on my gap year working as an Ad Hoc museum and art curator. Been accepted to do archaeology at UCL & Newcastle then Cultural Studies and Goldsmiths.

    My dilemma is that:
    1. Im not sure I have the same fire for archaeology anymore
    2. Cultural studies sounds interesting, but scared if its not for me + its less prestigious?
    3. Im a newcastle girl, so UCL seems scary but is a top university and Goldsmiths seems friendly and more artsy but maybe less impressive?

    If anyone has any experiences of has done cultural studies, I would LOVE any advice.

    Any help on any of those things would be great!

    Social and Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths is a diverse degree- you can choose a lot of what you study. Re prestige- it depends on what you want to do- it's prestigious for art, community based work, sociology, anthropology, media, and education.

    Hey Hannah,

    I have a friend who has just finished that degree (he is actually the incoming Welfare and Diversity officer) if you want to drop me a personal message if you still have any questions and I can ask him to get back to you! I know he thinks its the best degree ever invented!

What's the best type of cheese?
