Well in Indonesia and maybe other countries (as I see some content in TikTok/Instagram), getting work experience comes first for career in marketing. You will be rich with business use case and able to connect silver lining that your previously never think of, yet happen in real life. Go for the apprenticeship.

Well, whatever your decision I wish the best for you 😬

Hey @laylawright!

Kingston University, London offers two undergraduate marketing courses, both with the option of taking a sandwich year:


The entry requirements are roughly 120-136 UCAS points (BBB-AAB), but there is an option to do a degree with a foundation year with lower entry requirements.

If you have any questions, just let me know! 😁
