A college in Glasgow has renamed its media and journalism course to ‘How to be a Youtuber’ following a survey among young people.

Glasgow Clyde College announced they would be renaming several courses after carrying out a review among people aged 16 to 24.

Almost a third of those involved in the survey want to pursue a career as a YouTuber, while a quarter dream of becoming an influencer.

As a result, the institution announced that media, journalism and TV has been retitled to How to be a Youtuber.

Other changes include Access to HND Business being traded for How to be an Entrepreneur, while NQ Introduction to Sound Production is now called How to be a music producer.

Deputy principal John Rafferty said: “We want all young people to strive for their dreams, but we know that the journey to get there can sometimes be daunting and challenging.

“Whether it’s because you just don’t know where to start, or you feel like it’s a step out of your comfort zone, with Glasgow Clyde College, you can.

“By matching course names with young people’s dream jobs, we’re opening a world of possibility to anyone studying at the college.

“It’s interesting to see the careers which young people aspire to.”
