What A Levels Do I Need to Study Marketing at Uni?

Choosing A Level subjects can be challenging, particularly for students who aren’t 100% clear on their long-term career goals or what they want to study at uni. There’s a lot to consider and it can feel quite overwhelming to have to make a decision that is potentially going to direct the rest of your higher education. However, if you know what you want to study at university, choosing your A Levels is a little easier. In fact Brampton College, a Sixth Form College in London, have put together the following advice to help students who want to do a Marketing degree at university. 

Marketing is a popular subject that features a variety of topics so it’s unlikely that you’ll be asked for anything too specific with regards to your A Level experience. This is great news for you, because it means you can select the subjects you enjoy the most, which is generally advised anyway and what I did. I chose to study textiles, English lit, business and ICT meaning I really enjoyed my sixth form experience and got enough qualifications to study fashion marketing at University of Northampton.

To study marketing at university, business and psychology could be two great A-level options, since marketing mainly explores the relationships between companies and their target market. English is another good option, because it will give you plenty of experience in essay writing, reading and referencing; things you’ll be doing a lot of at university.

Whatever A Levels you choose, you will learn invaluable skills that you will carry through to university and beyond. A degree in marketing can prepare you for a wide range of jobs, because it gives you the knowledge you’ll need to thrive in a business environment. For example now have a successful career in digital marketing working full time as a digital content editor.

The best thing to do if you’re really unsure is have a look at specific universities and their courses and find out what they’re asking for. You can also talk to your teachers for some advice, as well as older students in your year who have already been through it.
