    Hi everyone!

    I've recently been to a UCAS convention with my sixth form, and after some consideration I've narrowed my choices down for open day visits. The course I'm looking into is either Media or a Media and English Literature joint honours - I wondered what university you would consider the best out of this list, and, if you attend one of them, what it's like there? Thank you

    Hi CebbieForevs,

    It's great that you've started to decide where you would like to study. Here at the University of Hertfordshire, you can study English Literature with Media as a Minor (25% of your degree) or a Joint (50% of your degree). The programme is really flexible and you can change your study pattern at the start of each year. Our Media courses combine both theoretical and practical study. We have an open day coming up this Saturday and some more in October. Hope your visits go well!

    If you have any questions at all, just let us know.

    Good luck!

    Hi CebbieForevs,

    I went to the University of Gloucestershire and was lucky enough to have been selected to join their School of Media there. I personally studied Television Production but as i am sure you're aware there are lots of different specialist Media Courses on offer.

    The reason i chose the University of Gloucestershire was because the course was Skills set accredited which is so important if you want to go into the media industry after education, and the work experience that students were doing was incredible. When you're trying to work out which University is the best it really depends on what you are looking for.

    My best advice for you is to look at what you want to do for a career and what it is that has made you want to study media. Once you've got those two points down on paper you can start looking at which University will offer the best experience for you.

    I can promise you that if you are anything like the media students I knew you will love being at University and the opportunities available to you are immense. If you can narrow the list down a little bit i would also suggest going to an open day. Lots of institutions are taking bookings now for their summer dates, and when you walk around the campus, meet current students and talk to the course lecturers, then you will get a feeling about whether or not the course is for you.

    If you have any questions about studying media, or would like tips about how to apply for a media course, or if you simply want to know more about the University of Gloucestershire then please feel free to message me.

    Good Luck!!
    Jack
