Will this course suit you?

Sources: UCAS & KIS

Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses

Course description

If you would like to study for a degree but do not have the qualifications required to enter directly into Level 1 of a three-year degree programme, or you are undecided which programme of study you wish to join, then the Extended Humanities programme offers you an alternative route into Higher Education. This extra year of study, a Level 0, prepares you for degree-level study and has been carefully designed to support and motivate you as well as build your self-confidence. The programme is aimed at: applicants with the motivation, determination and potential to succeed in their studies, mature applicants who lack formal qualifications, those who have experienced interruptions in their education, particularly in the last year of A2 study, for example due to illness, those who do not wish to return to FE to retake A-levels or undertake an Access course and those who may have studied in a vocational context and require fuller academic development before progressing to an academic course. This programme will help you to adjust to an academic culture and understand what is expected of students who are studying for a degree.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Journalism roles are very sought after, and competition fierce. It's not impossible to get into roles with a first degree – quite a few do - but they can often be insecure or on a freelance basis, and a lot of jobs in journalism go to postgraduates. Unpaid work is not the norm for new journalists, but it’s rather more common than for other roles. The skills you can gain from a journalism degree can be useful in a range of industries, and so grads from these courses can be found in a wide range of jobs. London tends to dominate the jobs market for journalism graduates, but 2012 graduates found opportunities elsewhere, particularly in the South East and North West.
