Access course to media studies

I am new in the UK and I am over 18 they told my I should apply for access course. For my access course I would like to choose media studies because I am passionate about voice overing/acting photography making films etc.. My question is: Am I doing right by choosing media studies in England? Is it good for job opportunities? If someone has any experience or advice please let me know!

Media Studies covers a wide range of possible professions in the creative industries. These are not known for their fantastic salaries at the entry level - lots of people start in low paid jobs like runners, assistants, etc. However, exciting and rewarding careers are possible for those who are ambitious and tenacious enough - with a bit of luck thrown in.
