About the subject
Media and Film Careers
The Creative Industries now contribute £80 billion to the UK economy annually and represent 5% of the UK economy. The Creative Industries sector is growing four times faster than any other sector of the UK economy. The sector is predicted to grow by 20% by 2022. 72% of people who work in the Creative Industries are graduates. Over 50% have creative or media related degrees and this figure is increasing each year. Media and film graduates have one of the highest employment rates of any degree course. The sector is growing so quickly that there is a growing skills crisis, therefore employment opportunities are expanding compared with most other graduate professions.
