HI there i'm sorry if a thread has already been created for this.
i'm stuck between a few uni courses... what is the best one?

Fashion- I've been making clothes for as long as i can remember and the only adv higher i'm doing is art. I sell my own upcycled clothes online, however I don't love the idea of art school and the employment rates are so low plus to really succeed in this industry you need networks which i just don't have and don't see myself getting.

Business+ marketing- probably the degree my parents would want me to do the most. Like I said before I have my own mini business in selling upcycled clothing which is doing quite well at the moment and I would like to learn more about how to grow a business. Marketing because I take art and i'm very imaginative and could really see myself enjoying the advertising industry. On the whole though i've looked into it and the career prospects sound quite boring for me as a person... don't know how fufilled i'd feel and i've never taken a higher in business.

enviornmental sciences/ sustainability- I genuinely believe we need people with this degree for the future with climate change and our consumerist actions as humans destroying our planet. I attend as many school strikes for climate change as I can and I'm veggie/ make clothes/ passionate about being as eco and minimalist as possible. Also all my highers are science based. Again the career prospects bore me and don't seem to fit me well

eng A maths A chem A bio B art A
highers i'm taking this year-
adv art, mods, french
the other option is not going to uni at all/ take a gap year but I also don't know if i'm cut out for that I feel so young.

I'd say my main priority is I want to do a degree (as cringe as this sounds) that will help everyone's future hopefully through something eco based and help get through to people to change their actions...
whether thats through designing sustainable garments, my own business, adverstise/ market eco brands or get down to the sciences behind it.

would love some help as i'm writing my personal statement soon.

Environmental science with Management. Chemistry with Management. Biological Sciences with Management. These degrees will mean you can combine your interests. You can help the fashion industry and its businesses have a better impact on the planet. Material Chemistry is the module you’d want to take once getting into your degree in order to specialise in something that’s going to be related to fashion. Scottish unis have more flexible degree programmes so you would be able to pick more modules that suit you and even do some art and English modules along with your science degree if you wanted. As well as this, you could join societies to do with fashion and textiles and art to have that creative outlet and societies to do with fighting global warming to start creating an impact as soon as you get to uni.

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (554)
Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (674)
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (330)
I think there is a better option than the ones suggested (let us know in the thread!) (74)
