The Guardian’s annual University guide is out today, and that link will take you to the entry for Media Studies.
Britain’s top university for studying media is Warwick, followed by Southampton, Sheffield, Cardiff, and Birmingham. The lowest entry tariff in the top 10 in Leicester (311 points), whereas you need 428 for Warwick.
79th and last on the list is Northampton, which is near me, so perhaps I should offer to teach there.
Warwick is also top for American Studies. American Studies is a brilliant subject, so it would be ideal to apply for one and take subsidiary courses in the other.
