I personally haven't applied for a geography course but I wish I'd have looked into it.
I'm curious what people will do after a geography degree.

So after your degree what do you want to do?

ATM, I'm interested in going into either

1. Urban/Transport planning
2. Tourism industry
3. Finance/Management or something along those lines.

The third choice seems like a lot of stress and pressure but lots of money :dance: :gah:

either planning/transport, or accountancy/finance. latter is probably more likely.

Is anyone wanting to become a teacher?
On a related note, can you do a conversion (I think it is ) course for geography and then a PGCE? Or do you have to do a 3 year degree then PGCE?

Possibly me
I think you do your degree and then the PGCE after that.

Ideally, I'd like to do something meaningful by helping the poor here or in other countries somehow.

Pretty much all of my friends at uni want to teach when they finish!

Eventually I will go into the public sector - local government ot the civil service, but something like the UN would be the dream!

But can't you do a conversion course where if you don't do a geography degree, but you want to be a geo teacher...

I've never considered Transport planning, what's the appeal in it?

Big city transport is pretty cool. It's such a huge operation that there will be always something interesting to change/fix. I'm mainly interested in rail and underground rail (especially the London tube :london: :love:. It's quite fascinating (the tube). Although I'v never studied it or looked into it properly, it just looks quite cool

But it is the one of the ones that I'll probably least likely to pursue in the end

As far as I'm aware there's no such thing as a conversion course for geography (like there is for Law or medicine). So yes, it's be a three year degree and then the PGCE.

However, that does make it four years of study, rather than 5 (3 for the undergrad, a year for the conversion and then a year for the PGCE).

What were/are you hoping to do for your undergrad degree? (i.e. what were you wanting to study and then 'convert' to geography from)?

I've changed my choice actually. I'm going to apply through extra for a geography course, I applied for psychology before but cancelled it.
