Need some advice on something. Applied for 3 separate Universities in Film & Television Production, Salford is my firm choice and my ideal location, however my dad's said if i apply for salford as my firm and get rejected then it could be worth taking a gap year then re applying next year, personally I'm leaning more towards if I get an offer from edge hill or Manchester Met taking one of them in the same course rather than waste a gap year due to the fact I am 20 now
can you get into industry other means i.e. bbc etc apprenticeship, work experience, entry level jobs. problem its an all or nothing degree get into industry then happy days. but if u grad realise that grads massivey outsupply jobs. and u dont get anywhere whos gonna be wanting tv production grads then
I'm confused by the use of "firm" in this context. Do you mean preferred? You can't apply for somewhere to be your firm, you select your firm and secondary choice once your offers and rejections are all in.
Actually see what your other unis are like first and see if you like them. Gap year isn't so bad tho, I've met people of all ages at uni and they've all had a gud time. I'm m8s with second years who are turning 22 this year, they're having basically the same experience I'm having regardless.
Your misuse of the word firm is making this super confusing btw but the gist is uh... don't do anything rash? yeah.
