    I don't know what to do with my uni course, I was keen on doing business management for years but now that the time is coming close to choose, I am completely lost and don't think I want to do it.

    I'm good at the marketing sector, but i'm more interested in Graphics & ICT so I don't know what course I should pick and what career it could lead me to?!

    Just because you are good at something doesn't mean you should choose to do it. For example, I'm fairly good at English Literature but that I don't like it much so I wouldn't choose to do it. If you are really uncertain take a gap year so you have time to think about it. Moreover, when you look at courses online you can see what you would be doing in the 3/4 years you are there. Look at them in detail and see if it looks interesting to do. Business is a very good degree to have, it shows you are equipped for society and you can get paid very well in having this degree. You would get more out of that degree than graphics and ICT. You could do graphics on the side and as a hobby, that's what my sociology teacher does and he gets paid to make websites which he taught himself to do. In my opinion you can get further with business management, it opens a wide range of careers, like shop managers to your own business to accounting. Graphics is a lot harder, and you have to be very talented. That being said, you have to be talented in anything to do well. Considering you have been wanting to do business for a while I think you should go for it. Talk to you teachers and parents too! hope this helped slightly!

    Talk to people who have done the course and where could be a place to start. I have been wanting to do business for years and continued it on my Business Management degree at Newman University. We have studied various modules including marketing, ict and so much more. There are many career paths I can go down which were made aware by my uni and course leaders, it saved me a lot of time. Doing business allows you to gain different skills and knowledge before you start thinking about which area you can specialise in. It can open a lot of doors.
    Where are you considering going or applying?
