    I wasn't sure what university course I wanted to do so I decided to take a gap year. At the minute, I am stuck between Psychology or a course aimed more at health and fitness.

    One course I am looking at is Sport, Phsyical Activity and Health at Ulster University. It covers modules that I'm really interested in and even has modules focused on Sport Psychology. However how do I know if this course can get me a good career? I got 3 A's in my A levels and I want to have a successful job so I don't want to ruin my chances by picking a course that may not offer me a lot of options career wise.

    This course can lead on to Primary teaching which I have thought about but am not completely sure about yet (I'm currently volunteering in a primary school to see how I would feel about it).

    any advice for knowing if this course would be good or not? Or at least advice on how I could find out?I'm heading to the Ulster open day next week to see if I can find out anything
