    I'm currently in year 12, and I am studying, IT, psychology, English language and sociology but for my second year I think I might drop sociology because I am really not enjoying it.
    I really want to go to university but I am clueless as what to study. I am interested in media, film, business, marketing and advertising, publishing (such as magazines), as well as IT, psychology and English language.
    Do you have any suggestions on what course I could do? Or did you do similar A Levels/have similar interests, what did you end up studying at uni?
    Thank you

    Journalism might be the thing for you.

    General advice on choosing a Uni subject here : http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...sing_a_subject

    To get into Journalism or working in TV/Radio you dont need to do a 'journalism' or 'media' degree. Do a degree subject you'll enjoy (and therefore succeed at), and while you are at Uni write for any blog/student paper etc that you can, or make films etc. Get relevant vacation work and internship once you graduate. If you look at careers of most TV/Media folk they did conventional subject degrees and THEN thought about working in that area. There are also plenty of way to get into the media without doing any degree at all : BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/academy/work-in...rainee-schemes and ITV http://www.itvjobs.com/working-here/apprenticeships/ and SKY TV https://jobs.sky.com/starting-out/ap...hip-programmes
