    Thanks x

    The one that leads to a happier career choice is the one YOU want to do.

    Pay is pretty irrelevant if you don't enjoy your job. Yes, money is necessary to live, but it most certainly isn't the be all and end all.

    To be honest, all of the career paths you have listed all have good career prospects and opportunities to specialise or branch out after obtaining the basic necessary qualifications. So I say again, choose the one YOU want to do Good luck!
