Just wondering which course has more job prospects. I’ve heard law with criminology is doesn’t have many job opportunities. I’m kind of leaning more towards business as I think I want to work in that kind of environment so even business management by itself is kind of appealing. Just want to get some views from people who have studied those courses.

Hi Allybear_,

I think when picking a course, whilst employability is important, it is also important to choose a course which you think that you will enjoy more as university is a large time and financial commitment. Personally I studied a Business and Marketing degree, enjoying the vast amount of areas covered on the business side (business strategy, business law, ethical business, international business etc).

In terms of employability, I have been unable to find a combined degree but careers for each of the subject areas I have included below:

Criminology: https://www.prospects.ac.uk/careers-...ee/criminology

Law: https://www.prospects.ac.uk/careers-...-my-degree/law

Business: https://www.prospects.ac.uk/careers-...ess-management

It may be benefical to attend some virtual open days to ask students on these courses whether they enjoy them and their plans for after the degree.

At Hull, we have a virtual open day this weekend which can be found following this link: https://www.hull.ac.uk/choose-hull/s...t-us/open-days

Best of luck,
Millie

Hi thankyou for your help I was doing some more research yesterday and I think business and marketing is for me such a coincidence that it’s what you’re studied! I’m going to apply for that soon instead. It’s sounds so interesting! What is the course like to study? And what made you choose it?

Hi Allybear_,

Oh wow! I could probably talk all day about it but I will try and keep it relatively brief.

I chose to do the Business and Marketing course because I really enjoyed marketing and the creativity of the degree, but I also wanted to learn more about the broader side of business (such as business strategy, ethical business, international trade etc). I found this degree gave me the best of both worlds in provided me with rounded knowledge but also knowledge in an area I found really exciting.

I found the course to be really engaging in terms of content with it continously reflecting the latest global events and developments (my course started in 2016 so the impact of Brexit was explored throughout), I found that this very interesting as it allowed me to apply the knowledge I learnt on the course. The course also uses live projects (particularly on the marketing side) where outside organsiations brief students on issues they're facing and ask for their help in how to solve it. These pieces of work are really exciting as it allows you to work alongside real businesses, some of the recent busiensses have included, Team GB and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, alongside several local businesses seeking to expand.

I also really liked that the assessment methods on the course were so varied. As someone who doesn't like exams, it was great that there were plenty of different ways which you were tested including; group projects, poster presentations, reports, assignments. If there are exams then these are often multiple choice which was quite relieving for me.

There were also lots of opportunities to do more. These opportunities included internships, placement years, exchange trips, study abroad, networking events (which I can talk about in detail if you'd like to know more)

If you'd like to know more, then I can be reached via this link (https://api.unibuddy.co/og/universit...Position=share)
