I was thinking about applying for law at the University of Essex however I was wondering if I would be better off doing a access to he as I would need to do the degree with a foundation year regardless. I'm not expecting to get into Cambridge or lse but I could get into the Bristol , uea etc however as my gcse grades are average and my levels are in art subjects. Would it be worth the stress?
Would I be better off doing a degree with a higher earning potential and do a senior status llb after as I'm a mature student who would like to have a decent salary and be able to rent my own place.
Previous advice I have had is to do a degree in social work as it's a guaranteed job with an average earning of 28 k a year with hardly any experience and some people get job offers before finishing their degree. I have countless books in psychology and sociology, plus I like law and it's moreless a combination of all study wise.
I feel like I would prefer law but I don't want to be stuck not being able to get a job. I wouldn't be so worried about it if the university rank didn't matter so much for law firms .
