That is such a lazy question. If you reframe it you may get a response or two.

PLEASE don't do media studies
While I feel your pain, I have to ask the OP what A Levels they did. If they did A Levels in Media and drama and all that then it's understandable why a degree in media is beneficial. But don't expect a job in the media industry because of your degree, it's too competitive.

Think at least 20x before you choose to spend up 70k(if you do like foundation years + masters + onsite accomdation)on this course. Seriously, this is such a huge investment!

Decent media employers don't want media studies graduates.

Depends what aspect of the media interests you.

Research their graduate intake schemes and intern policies, then take a view.

I would recommend an apprenticeship especially for a subject like media where practicality is key. University isn't everything these days and for something like media isn't needed really.

This site can be biased when it comes to non-STEM subjects... researching online is your best bet, not on here

If you know you're wanting to do an apprenticeship why not go for it straight away? That way you'll have 3+ years head start against your peers who go to uni.

Media studies gets a lot of stick as a degree (rightly so, in my opinion) for an industry where experience and contacts are the most important factors. If you know you want to work in the industry in some capacity and have the opportunity to do an apprenticeship I'd suggest you think very carefully about what a degree in the subject would add (if anything). Good luck!

I recommend that you look at that again, given your advocacy role.
