    I am currently looking into degrees and unis and all that malarky and I was positive what I wanted to do... until I saw the wide wide wide range of opportunities there actually is. So I started at graphic design but im now considering marketing and advertising ect. My A-Levels dont really limit my choices ass they're all visual arts (photography, graphic design and media) and so yeah, just wondered if anyone else is feeling the same?

    My personal tips in this situation would be:

    1. Study something you enjoy and are passionate about (it makes any potentially stress more worthwhile).
    2. Ensure that the area you plan to study has prospects for you.
    3. Try to study a broad subject area which has options for specialisation either within your degree (specialisation modules, for instance); or during the initial phase of your chosen career.

    While I agree with this to a certain extent (see pt. 1 above) - I also think you have to sometimes make a compromise between what you love and what has career prospects. I don't think just loving the subject area is the sole consideration that should be put into making these decisions.
