    Which subjects would be relevant or useful in the advertising or media field?
    I would prefer to take Biology because i'm interested in it but people tell me that Economics is better if i'm planning to go into the Advertisement and Business world

    You can take whatever you like to be honest, and a background of Biology, particularly if you enjoy it could be helpful if you wanted to do some kind of medic related journal or that kind of thing?
    So long as you do well it should be fine, relevant subjects include
    • English
    • Sociology
    • Phycology
    • Media Studies
    • Film studies
    • Maths
    • Art and Design
    but really it's up to you; like I said if you get a good grade and you have at least some relevant subjects don't worry too much

    Good luck

    Thank you, that was genuinely helpful.
    Unfortunately, our school doesn't allow us to take both Socio and Arts at the same time. From a Media/Journalism career point of view, which one would be more useful?
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
