Not sure what uni or course I should study

Hi, I am hopefully going to uni however I’m not sure what to study. I want it to be something media related, maybe something like social media etc. however I also want to pick the right university. I went to Huddersfield last year however I dropped out due to the course not being for me and I really just didn’t like living there. I also went there with my mates who I drifted away from whilst I was there, I got lonely because of this as I didn’t make many friends. I want to go to a university which will make me socialise, go on nights out and go clubbing but also support the course I’m doing. My UCAS points are 112 so I’m hoping for a solid university but I could do with my adviceThanks :smile:
Well Manchester Met Uni has a film and media studies course at 112 points. Essex uni has an Art history, visual culture and media studies course. Birmingham City Uni has a media production course.

There are lots of unis offering media studies courses requiring 112 points. How far do you want to go from home? The bigger cities will obviously have the more thriving social life - clubs and pubs.

Hello there,

At Cardiff Met, we offer BA (Hons) Media and Communications Degree - Cardiff Metropolitan University and BSc (Hons) Sport Media Degree - Cardiff Metropolitan University.

For the Media and Communications degree, you will be able to develop strong communication and media writing skills while focusing on specific industries, and gain confidence in writing various forms of journalism, PR and marketing for different media industries, such as film, sport, fashion and music. You can develop your own creative work as well! You can also undertake a placement year and gain some work experience alongside your study.

If you like sports, why not combine your sport interest with media and do Sport Media course? Students will study a range of modules around journalism, media law, sports marketing and more. Many students might choose to study MSc Sport Broadcast after their undergraduate degree and are now working in the professional sport media industry with BBC Sport, Sky Sports, LiveWire Sport and Cardiff City.

Cardiff is a small and vibrant capital city in Wales. Our campuses and accommodations are very close to the city centre. You can always take a 20 minute bus ride to the city centre from our campuses and halls. There are many restaurants and pubs around which are very nice for night outs and socialise!

Hi there,

Here at Chester, we offer a variety of media related courses.

For example, Film and Media Studies and Media and Television Production. You can also explore the rest of our media related courses here.

I'd also recommend exploring the Prospects website, as they have so many useful resources to discover what you can do with your degree, where your subjects can take you, and how you can apply your skills.

Chester is a small city, but is rich in history. We have multiple campuses in and around Chester that offer a range of courses, and many accommodation options. The city centre has lots of opportunities for socializing, such as activity clubs, volunteering, pubs, bars, and nightclubs. I have loved the two years I studied there, and look forward to returning after my year abroad!

I hope this helps and best of luck,
