Accounting and Finance is one of the most versatile bachelor degree courses you can study because it means once you graduate you can enter any industry. The act of interpreting, dealing with and classifying financial information applies to businesses across the board. For example, if you have an interest in football, you could take up a role within a football club’s accounts department.

BSc (Hons) Business Management with Creative Industries
If you have a passion for film and television a bachelor degree course specifically relating to creative industries could be perfect for you. It offers you the best of both worlds – a solid grounding in business management and leadership skills, combined with specialist knowledge of creative sectors such as TV, radio, tech, gaming, advertising, design and fashion.
There are many exciting industries for you to choose from depending what you have a passion for. And although they may be creative, they’re still businesses like any other and require skilled professionals to help them grow and remain profitable.
BSc (Hons) Economics
If you love crunching numbers and have an analytical and logical mind, an Economics degree can give a broad education that will open doors for you in a number of industries. An economics degree is considered one of the top uni degrees on offer because it provides students with a generalist understanding of the world and how it functions.
Students will learn about everything from how the price of goods and services are set and the law to accounting and finance and understanding oil and gas. The knowledge you acquire is relevant to many employers and therefore makes you highly employable once you graduate. You could land a role as an investment analyst, economic advisor, forensic account, financial advisor, statistician or stockbroker, for example.
BSc (Hons) Marketing
Marketing is a dynamic subject to study and ideally suited to students who enjoy interacting with other people and have great communication skills. It also gives you access to a wide range of industries because the majority of businesses will require marketing to sell their products or services.
On a Marketing degree you’ll learn about consumer behaviour and how companies target their customers and build relationships. You’ll study the psychology of buying patterns and attitudes and you’ll undertake tasks such as competitor analysis as well as opportunities and threats to a business. Such a degree will give you the skills needed to find a job in many different industries.
A Law degree is arguably one of the best undergraduate degrees in the UK. It gives you a thorough grounding in law which can lead to career as a solicitor or barrister but it can also help you to pursue a role in many other areas because the skills you learn are highly valued by employers outside the legal sector as well.
If you decide not to pursue a career in law once you graduate there are still plenty of opportunities in accounting, finance, human resources, the civil service and administrative roles, for example.
