Marketing or Journalism? watch

    • Thread Starter


    I'm a 12th grader from Estonia and I'm very interested in going to university in England, but I'm a little bit stumped when choosing the course I want to study. At first I was considering Film or Media but I researched a lot and found out that those are not really useful and may leave me without a job when I finish studying so I'd be better off just working at creating films and stuff as a hobby. So I went to look for something more practical to study and the ones that stood out to me are Journalism and Marketing.

    Now my question is: which one of these two gives better chances of finding work after graduation? Also does Marketing require good skills at math? because I'm unfortunately not that great at it but from what I have read you can choose if you go into the more creative side of marketing or the business side so for me the choice would probably be the creative side.

    So considering all that which would be the better choice, Marketing or Journalism?

    Thank you!

    I am currently doing a Marketing course and in all honesty, I have not had to use maths once! If you do it would only be for once module, most likely finance, but don't let this put you off! Many of the modules are creative and rely more on your communication skills rather than your numeracy skills
