Why are you so sure that university is the correct path for you? Just sounds like you're looking for an excuse to go.

You don't need to study business to have your own business. In fact, most people with their own businesses - successful or otherwise, don't bother with business at university. Suggest you consider Accounting if you actually want it to be useful. Otherwise, business at university is out of touch with the real world and how commercial businesses work.

Note: I used to have my own LTD company and provide contracting IT services towards other businesses, from small to enterprise. I did computer science at university - though it had little to no affect in terms of my employment prospects in the real world.

i was considering to specialise in accounting or marketing but with the course in first year they teach you the general business things everyone needs to know and then 2nd and 3rd year you pick an area to specialise in so i would of ended up doing either accounting or marketing either way if that makes sense


also thank you for replying and helping me cause i’m the first in my family to go uni and my college teachers were useless

I don't think it'll be helpful at all in the real world. You will no doubt end up hiring an accountancy firm to handle the invoices, VAT, dividend, salary etc. and dealing with HMRC. Setting up a LTD is very straightforward as well, you do it online and doesn't take much time at all.

Honestly, just sounds like you wanna go to university because that's the story you've been fed by others. If you really wanna go, I strongly suggest doing a course that will be more practical for you in the real world. E.g. doing a course that is related to the type of business you wanna setup. Or better yet working in the type of business you yourself wanna setup so you can gain valuable inside commercial experience. You can even make it your final year project if you want i.e. setting up the business for real. My advice, don't bother doing business itself, it's useless and you can just research what's involved yourself.

No help whatsoever to the OP unless you explain why. That's if you actually have a reason, of course.
