    That's great! I've been to Lyon already and it's a lovely city. If I'm lucky maybe I'll get to do my year abroad there!

    That's really good value for money as well... I must admit, I'm kind of jealous of the French system Like you, I'm still a couple of years away from graduating, but you've really helped me out at lot. Merci pour tout et bonne chance! :france:
    I've never actually left the UK, but going to France has always been something I've dreamed of. I plan to travel Europe next summer and France is on the list, hoping to visit Lyon to get a feel of the city and see if I can find the campus I hope to study at

    You're very welcome! What is it you want to teach?

    That sounds great! I must say I'm very jealous I'm sure you'll love Lyon. It's beautiful to look at, it has everything you need as a student and it's miles cheaper than Paris! Oh, and the public transport is amazing. A bit of a weird thing to mention, but yeah, the transport is awesome.

    I'm hoping to teach English as a foreign language, but I agree with you that studying in France will give me that extra edge when applying for French teaching posts!

    No need to be jealous yet! it's still not a definite that I'll go travelling, also have to wait and see if my friend can come. And ooh I'm glad the transport is good! I can get very nervous on public transport :P

    Good luck! I hope you get to do it!

    If I became a vet nurse, I would likely specialise with horses. If zoolgist, I would mainly want to study any type of mammal (my dream is to go out to Africa)
    Africa would be amazing!

    Cricket because... Well I like it.


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    It sounds stupid, but I've never actually played cricket before. I suppose it's not really seen as a girl's sport, but it does seem sexist not to let girls play cricket in PE to be honest. I mean, it's 2014 man

    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.

    I could do that! Still not sure if I'm interested in it enough to go into a career about it, though.

    Of course nothing is set in stone, but my 'dream' would be ultimately to pursue a career in diplomacy or journalism, working as a foreign correspondent for an organisation such as the BBC. Definitely a job where I would have the opportunity to travel and see more of the world. It sounds corny and so worn out, but I do believe a career like that would be genuinely exciting, rewarding and dynamic.

    An academic psychologist.

    I love research, and I love Psychology. I know a lot of TSRians question it's value as a science, but I think it's so exciting because the research is so rapidly advancing, and we have so much more to learn/ discover about all things brain (and mind and behaviour). I also love how you can read so much crazy **** in research papers, and some of the methods the academics come up with are so imaginative, you really need to think outside the box.

    If not that, I'd love to work with drug addiction.

    You're right, it sounds like it would be great! I wouldn't mind doing journalism…or writing articles in magazines perhaps…or even interviewing celebrities - imagine how many celebrities you would get to meet then!

    That's really interesting. I've always been really fascinated by psychology and I hope to take it when we have the option to take it in a year or two.

    Too much training unfortunately. I am looking at a career within the area of Travel and Tourism / Tourism and Hospitality. It would depend on what happens in the future within the industry exactly what job I would go into. I would really like something with a history/heritage aspect ideally.

    I was interested in working in Construction - plasterer or carpenter/joiner. Not too sure about that.

    How about you? What career you hoping to do?

    After many years of uncertainty and debate, I dediced on going into the medical field. I'm thinking being a general/ family practitioner since I love helping people, I'm always studying the bodies and how to keep people healthy, and I'm always the white mage no matter what game I play...

    I have a few ideas, but I have nothing that I really want to do.. I don't know.. Maybe writing articles in magazines, a GP, a primary school teacher, a private jet pilot or showing people around houses, but as I said, I'm not sure.

    I'm kind of intrigued by it I suppose. Is it sort of like rounders? I quite like rounders.

    I'm not sure what career I'd like to go into, but here are my ideas: private jet pilot, GP, showing people around houses, primary school teacher or writing articles in magazine. I'd like something very well-paid, but something interesting that I enjoy doing.

    I want to become a stock broker!
    I have some sort of fascination with the stock market and when playing a simulator i turned 100k into 8bn in a month. I have a genuine enjoyment when buying and selling stocks.
    That's stock trading dude. Brokers just fulfil traders' orders.
