I'm an international student (from Brazil) with some mediocre grades, to be more specific I don't have good grades at math related subjects, such as physics and chemistry, while I do pretty great in more human related studies, like history, philosophy, sociology, languages and art. Do you guys think my deficiency in those subjects will be a large obstacle to get an offer for a media/journalism course from a decent uni? Any univesities and course programs you think I should be looking at?

You need to be more specific about your grades and the course you want to study.

The grade system is different, they go from 0 to 10. In those subjects I mentioned being good at my grades vary from 8 to 10, and in the ones I'm sort of bad 6 to 7 (there are some exceptions along the years). I'm looking for a media/communications degree, journalism is also an option. From what you heard about my grades, do you have any other course you would rec me?

You will need to look through entry requirements yourself, but Brazilian high school qualifications don't seem to be very highly regarded, I am afraid. I checked out a few unis and found that some wanted Brazilian applicants to do an international foundation degree first:

The 'less popular' universities generally have lower entry requirements:

Try looking at Ucas or the Complete University guide 'tables' for unis which do courses in which you might be interested, eg
