I am attracted to the social life and independence of what university can give you, but on the other side I am really interested in working and getting started into an apprenticeship in digital marketing (as well as getting paid). If I was to go to uni I'd maybe choose Business (but I am really undecided on this as Forensic psychology as well as Counselling psychology sounds really appealing). I am aware uni is more than just parties and I am prepared to study hard and everything; I'd consider myself to be quite a hard worker anyway! Alas - I undecided... not sure how to make my mind up... I am working in a supermarket and would really like to leave soon and get out there! Any advice would be really great.

(BTW my A-Level grades are C in Psychology, B in Product Design, and E in Biology despite my good understanding of it )

Why would anyone be in 30k debt (tuition only) just to be able to go to a few parties. To be honest, you may be able to have a better social life in an apprenticeship because not only do you have people at the uni/college, but there are also people at work.
