    I'm looking at getting ABB from my A-Levels and I was wondering if anyone has any Uni recommendations for Journalism/Multimedia Journalism. I'm looking at a few at the moment but I want to get a second opinion before I send off my 5 choices in my UCAS form. 👌

    Honestly I've never heard of it, but that's probably because I'm not from the UK. Anyway, I think that one of the things that matter the most is your interest in the course. For example, my insurance Choice is Leeds Beckett and my dad is quite upset because it hasn't an high ranking for media studies, but they don't seem to offer that same course anywhere else in the UK and I'd love to attend it if I don't get to Cardiff. So if you like it, go ahead and give it a try

    I'm from a small town in Northern Italy Actually I'd like to work in the creative industries, for example publishing. I've firmed Cardiff because the course is very academically driven and allows you to access different fields in the world of media other than pure journalism. Of course I don't mind the perspective of becoming a journalist, but in that case I'd like to write about books and literature what about you?

    I would like to become a sport journalist doing anything probably broadcasting because i heard it doesnt always mean you have to be infront of the camera you could just work for a broadcasting companay and Portsmouth has optional modules in year 2 (sport journalism) and year 3 (broadcasting journalism) so its perfect.... but its not ranked high so if i get higher i might go Sheffield but really i think i might just go Portsmouth regardless.. the Uni course matters more and on Which University it has the same stats

    Yeah, amen to that! Anyway, I visited Sheffield on an open day last summer, and it's not bad at all I had even applied but I decided to withdraw because it is not the best city to live in if you're on a wheelchair like I am. Sport journalist sounds like a great job! I wish you all the best with your studies and your future career

    The only thing I'm absolutely sure about right now is that I'm gonna firm Cardiff. I'm waiting for the applicants day at Leeds Beckett to decide whether to put it as insurance or not. If I don't meet the grades for Cardiff and don't go to Leeds Beckett I guess I'll have to stay in Italy., but I really hope not! Thanks for the nice chat and good luck

    Hey! I have both offers from Sheffield and Cardiff.. as far as I can tell Sheffield is better for the NCTJ training but Cardiff was ranked 1st by Guardian which I don't understand because it's not even an accredited course. Also they are both Russel group unis but I heard that Sheffield was higher tier. Have any of you made decisions?
