    Hi,
    I'm really not sure what it is that I'm wanting to study at university. Some days I'm dead set on doing English Literature but others I want to do media. I was just wondering what other people think? Is English Literature really hard?

    Thanks

    Hi there. I do both at A Level and I want to get into the media industry. I used to want to do a Media degree but I know that an English degree is more favourable and respected, plus the skills are transferable. A Media degree doesn't get you a job that easily as most media production companies will employ someone with a variety of skills. What sort of career are you planning?

    I really want to be a secondary school teacher (crazy right?! 😂). Thanks for the advice! I might go for English then if it's more recognised!

    Not crazy at all, respected and valued. English is better than Media for teaching. And it is my back up plan if things go wrong.

    If you want to be a teacher, English is the better option due to it being an all through subject taught in every school, so it keeps all teaching options open post uni. Quite frequently schools get English teachers to teach a bit of Media too, so you could end up doing both.
