    I'd like to work in something related to cosmology. Sadly, I realised this after doing a degree in linguistics, so I'm not sure that'll be possible. If you don't know, then don't rush into anything would be my advice. Well, don't rush into it when it involves sacrificing lots of time/money anyway.
    That's a shame. Maybe you could still learn about cosmology. I'm sure there will be classes for people who already have degrees, no? Depends how badly you'd like to do cosmology however.

    I want to go into medical research because diseases absolutely fascinate me and I want to make some sort of positive impact on this world. I've not full decided what field yet but I'm thinking neuroepidimology, virology or parasitology. Though I am also fascinated by genetics and genetic diseases.

    This is all still a dream however as I have yet to learn whether I am capable enough or even intelligent enough for such.

    Hmm I'm not sure where you're from, but I'm from England where the most prestigious universities don't usually offer marketing courses - usually people do something loosely associated with marketing at university (a language, economics, I'm doing geography because it teaches tons of transferable skills) and then build their way up from there.

    I did a "Young Enterprise" program at school but that's the furthest I've got
    I'm also from England too aha, yeah I'm still not 100% sure of where I'll apply to for university at undergraduate 2015. I'll probably think about it all this summer holiday

    We all start from somewhere aha

    I agree: that's a fascinating topic. I'm sure you're capable; if you work hard enough to reach your dream career, your effort will pay off.

    Good choice. That age group is much less of a handful than kids!

    Thank you! lovely of you too say.
    It's just it takes a certain mind for such research, you have to be full of ideas and think outside the box stuff like that. Sometimes my mind is stuck in a box

    Hehe I'm sure it'll work out! Keep at it. I guess you can train your mind to work in certain ways though - to be more creative and to think outside the box… No idea how, though! Beats me!

    I'm kind of interested in star signs and all that side of things, as well as the personalities of people's different Chinese new year animals. Do you get what sort of things I mean? Does anyone know what jobs are available to do with this subject?

    I never considered teaching in a college I agree it would be easier than teaching kids.

    What do you have to do to qualify to teach in a college?

    It would. 3 years of chosen subject and then one year QTS or PGCE in further education teaching.

    I'm into all that too well, an astrologer for one. You could write something like the Almanac. You could open your own shop selling stuff to do with it.

    Originally I wanted to be a secondary school teacher, but then I decided the 'students' were rather...'challenging'. I like a challenge, but secondary school teaching is just...too challenging for me. More recently I have considered primary teaching, and it is still an option. I don't know if primary education or further education would be better. I find the hardest aspect of teaching at any phase is the possibility of accusations, because teachers are an easy target, alone with students all the time.

    Thanks. Good luck. What you studying right now?

    Yeah that's what put me off teaching high school kids. Yeah very true but I try not to think about that when thinking about my future. I've just finished a course in Media, you? Thanks, good luck to you too.
