So I am in my final year of my undergrad in English Literature with Psychology. I have no idea what I want to do with my life when I graduate but one area I thought looked interesting was marketing, and I was looking at some masters couses that don't require a specific bachelors to get onto. Does anyone know if these courses are worth it? Or if I'd even get onto one with limited experience in this area? The alternative is just applying to a bunch of random grad schemes that I most definitely won't be accepted onto (my entire work experience is working at a kfc and a racecourse).

Thanks!

I can't specifically comment on the master's degrees.

I can say though that you can get CIM diplomas, and they (in my opinion) are just as good as the degrees. You're most likely be asked to go through Level 4 before you move onto the Level 6,7, and 8 (roughly equivalent of a master's degree).

Marketing is also a field that requires no prior qualifications or experience to get into, so your degree should be fine for grad schemes (although it would be competitive). In fact, if you know about applied/practical psychology, it can help you with marketing further down the road.

A masters in marketing is a wise option. Alternatively, why not consider a Masters in Business and Management (MBM); it's less specialised than a masters in marketing so you will be exposed to other areas of business - human resources, operations management, finance, marketing etc. Have a look at this MBM course from Strathclyde.
