EXPLAINER NOTES BY ANDY GARDNER

Subjects covered include:

Librarianship, Public relations, Media st, Film st TV and Film Production, Journalism

General Median salaries to compare with below:

For all 24-29-year-olds in work in 2014-15: £20,800 WonkHE.   For all ages, £27,600 in 2015 ASHE

Interesting points from the depths of the LEO spreadsheet:

Nothing new from me here, results seem similar to other more supposedly academic courses.  Could Loughborough’s position be due to their longstanding commitment to work placements.  Sixth formers should seriously consider Digital marketing or Creative apprenticeships, either before or instead of university in many of these areas.  There have even been the reintroduction of a small number of journalism apprenticeships.

It’s not just about the money!

There are many reasons to go to university; Love of a subject, independent and critical thinking, independent living (if affordable!).  It’s not just about salary levels, however applicants must not be misled by general statements about a blanket graduate dividend, these can be clearly bogus.  See information below.

For courses with a clear vocational link, check to see if there is a relevant apprenticeship standard:
