    For what result/output?
    Sorry i know my question really wasn't specific enough. I have just done a year of interactive media, but the problem is half of that i loved and the other half i hated. For example i loved, animation, digital audio editing and photography but i hate web production and a few other subjects we covered. I dont know wether to take the leap and focus on one thing i loved but the problem is i loved them all equally or continue with the next level of interactive media and accept the stuff im not good at/intersted in.

    Hi Sara,

    Maybe you could focus on the units you enjoyed in interactive media? The great thing about degree level courses is how specific they can be. For example, you can focus on animation, gaming, moving image or audio. The good thing about focusing on one form of communication is that you can become a specialist in that area, which will put you at the forefront of the job market when you graduate.

    The main thing is to do what you love... You will be spending the next 3-4 years learning about it and the rest of your life practising it. Maybe attend some open days at different institutions to see what attracts you the most? If you are interested in visiting Brighton Film School to check out our animation and filmmaking courses, you are more than welcome to book onto one of our open days:

    If you have any questions, I'm happy to help and best of luck with your decision

    Holly

    Hello Sarahill,

    If you do ever decide to move and study in England I would recommend checking out some of the courses at Ravensbourne. It is one of the top 50 design schools across the world

    It's based in London by the way, and has a small community of people from Northern Ireland, however, it is a very multi-national school, so you will find a lot of people with different walks of life.

    I also took Interactive Media for my A-levels and found this university to be a very good choice. I'm currently studying Design & Coding, which is a very open ended, although you might not like it all that much as it has to do with programming as well as Product Design.

    I would recommend you looks at Graphic Design, Animation and Motion Graphic courses, as they would probably suit the interests you mentioned best.

    If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

    Hope this helped,
    Michail
