Charlotte Michelle Simonsen from Southampton Solent University walks through her reasons for doing a masters in advertising.

The creative industry can seem rather scary when we don’t feel prepared or ready. You don’t know if companies are going to be nice or tear you apart. It almost feels like standing at a cliffs edge waiting to jump. But you are simply not confident enough to do it. I chose to do a masters in Creative Advertising for this reason. 

After doing some research on a masters I quickly found out I would easily have a good amount of spare time with the right prioritising. A couple of hours a week to read industry books, practice new skills and to build my network.
