Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The UK has a world-class media industry in film, print and broadcast media, worth billions to the economy, so it's hardly surprising that ambitious and talented graduates want to work in it. But be realistic – some parts of the industry have struggled during the recession and jobs are amongst the most competitive around. If you want to be a star in front of the camera or in print, you might want to look at other options. Media studies graduates are the most likely graduates to get into the media industry (in 2012, one in seven grads entering the media had a media studies degree) but they’re more likely to be directing, or operating sound or video equipment, or researching.
