I find it a little strange that you would go from degree level back down to a btec.
I think that most employers would also find this a bit strange if they know about qualification levels (and they really should)
Careers in the media aren't always as well paid as you would think. The people that you see on Tv may be getting a lot but getting to that level, from what I have been told is all about who you know and being in the right place at the right time.

diploma's are good qualifications to have ive not sure which subject will land you with the most earnings though. psychology can be useless if its not taken to post grad

You will be better of trying to get a job as a teaboy in some where like Granada or the BBC, the BBC are expanding in Manchester and there will be a hell of a lot of new oppurtunities there.

Once you have a degree it dosn't matter what in experience is more important, many people in the BBC got their jobs starting at the bottom, this is still very much the case today. My cousin has loads of qualifications and including a masters, he is working one a day a week for free to get experience in the media.

Have a look on the sticky further up this page posted by PQ 'What can I do with a xxxxx degree' There's loads of useful inks.

There're lots of careers you could go into with pyschology, as many don't require a specific type of degree.

Too right. My uncle started by running after fire engines to report local news. Now he's a BBC exec for technology and training. Or so he says anyway. :rolleyes:
