Well if you have passion then that’s great. My aunt did masters in marketing and struggled what to do next. It is a very popular area but I’m sure you are passionate enough to be part of the top 5%.

What is your plan after the degree? Have you researched what degree consist of, and the things you'll learn? If it's to become a Marketer then a degree in Marketing isn't required at all. In fact, if you don't want to go uni you could always do a School Leaver programme at one of the top Finance firms in Marketing.

Hey!

I'm a first-year Management & Marketing undergraduate at University of Bath and I can tell you the course really does shape your business vision and enables you to develop essential skills such as team-work and multicultural communication. It also offers you the opportunity to get involved in such interesting projects like being a student ambassador or a student trainer. These experiences along with volunteering, learning a new language for free at university and getting involved in societies give you a huge advantage when it comes to building the career you desire.

A marketing degree is worth it because it comes with the whole package: the university experience, coursework, valuable modules that are turned into practical group projects, exams that build your knowledge and all the connections you are making whilst at uni. Be careful when you choose the university and look at the course to make sure it is something you will enjoy.

Good luck! If you have any questions don't hesitate to quote me.

Hi, I’m head of marketing at TSR and, unsurprisingly, I love marketing. I also worked at a uni before so I know a little bit about marketing degrees.
You don’t necessarily need a marketing degree to get a marketing job. But obvs it helps.
There are loads of entry level marketing jobs so getting a moderately well paid grad job is very achievable.
Also many / most marketing degrees have lots of common elements with business or management degrees, so if you decide marketing isn’t for you you should have loss of transferrable skills - and you should be able to switch to a business degree or similar during your time at uni if you didn’t like it.
If you do want to do marketing as a job I can’t recommend work experience or an internship enough. You’ll learn loads. Now / soon would be a great time to send your cv to marketing and HR directors in local businesses (definitely consider sending them to marketing and ad agencies - you’d learn loads there)
