    Too specific, IMO. Though, if you go into consultancy ££££££££££££££££ ££

    I'd say law would give you a very broad scope of careers, it can get you in anywhere really. Maths too, and physics/chemistry, that can get you into IB.

    Probably, a degree in a subject you're interested in, that will lead you into a career you're interested in.

    Depends. If your talking general degrees I'd say something like a history degree maybe law.

    Allied Health profession degrees.

    Speech and Language Therapy
    Occupational Therapy
    Diagnostic Radiography
    Therapeutic Radiography
    Physiotherapy (Not that many job opportunities for this recently as it became a very common degree)
    optometry

    These degrees all lead to jobs and the course is funded by the NHS (well it is now, not sure about in the future with the funding issues) They are very specific degrees but often have related Masters degree which can expand and develop the career.
