Should I do Product Design at university?

Russell wants to study for a degree in Product Design, but isn't sure about the prospects of the job or where to go.

​I am in year 13 and I am about to apply for uni. I would like to get into the design industry, and I’m considering doing Product Design at Brunel. Is this a good choice?

What are the chances of getting a job after I graduate? What kind of pay can I expect as a product designer after, say, 10 years in the industry?

In my AS levels I got an A in Art and an A in Product Design and a B in Maths. What are best uni’s for Product Design? Is it better to do a BA or BSc? Thanks for your help.
