    So I am planning on studying business and management but i am stuck on what work experience to do so I can put it on my ucas statement. I have already done 2 jobs (retail, selling hot food etc), but I feel as if I should try and get some work that is closer to the business field. I've also gained some experience fundraising for a charity through NCS. I'm not sure where to apply because I'm only 17 with hardly any experience.

    Business Management is an academic degree so you don't need relevant work experience to get offers. Its once you get to university that getting experience is crucial.

    Thank you!
    If you can find any relevant reading like a business magazine that would look good
