    Rightt, so am currently looking at unis and am thinking of doing a degree in advertising and marketing. But all the uni's i look at only want about 2 D's and a C which really puts me off as i'm like well why are the entry requirmens so low?

    So if any one knows any good uni's for marketing please let me know

    If that's what you want to do for a living, I'd do a degree in something else that you enjoy doing, and get shed loads of work experience during the holidays. You can always do specialist qualifications afterwards, once you've started your career. Aim for a decent degree from a decent uni, as with anything. Something that will help build skills in communication, understanding and analysis would be good - English, History, Politics ...

    I wouldn't bother with any degree whose entry requirements were so low, but I wouldn't bother with a degree in marketing, either.

    I agree with Theo, do a degree in something more broader like English, and then you can always do a masters in Marketing. Also, it gives you time to get some work experience in the field. I saw a job advertised for a marketing executive which asked for a Masters in Marketing rather than a BA. And a few good unis do Marketing at Masters levels such as KCL.
