After giving it a careful thought, I have finally decided to study Media and Communication,even though my first idea was to pursue a career in the field of PR,due to the fact that it is unfortunately not a common course and i couldn't seem to find the right university for it (idk,i suppose it's too narrow).I would be really grateful if you could simply give me your opinion on whether it is a good course to study and suggest some possible universities to attend.I am looking for a course that offers a year abroad or work placement , and it would definetely be a plus if it is situated in a big city (such as London,Manchester) . The universities that i liked for this course are : Lancaster,Leeds,Newcastle,Loughb orough, Cardiff,University of East Anglia,City . Please , share your opinion, it would be greatly appreciated.

P.S Sorry if my grammar or vocabulary is not correct,English is not my native language

I am the same as you! I am applying for a Media and Communications course even though I plan to go in a PR career direction. I've applied to Newcastle, Leeds, Leicester and Sussex so far. I was also looking at Cardiff and East Anglia, the course in Cardiff is particularly good but I chose not to apply there because Newcastle and Leeds are just better city options for me.

I'd say any of the universities I have mentioned are great and the uni's you are looking at as well. I didn't like Loughborough too much though because they taught it as a BSc rather than a BA.

I'm the same as both of you! I want to do PR, but as it's not common I applied for some others too. If you want to do PR though - I recommend Lincoln and Bournemouth, both are great and respected unis. I also applied for Birmingham City and UWE as back ups, and also Loughborough to do media, because it looked like the most broad course and also it had a module on PR. Plus, distance is good and it just looked like a nice uni in general.
