    Hi guys!
    I'm kind of torn with what I want to do at university, and i have to start applying next year so I need help making up my mind! So I was wondering about doing a geography degree? I enjoy the subject at A level but worry about degree level. Do you find it interesting? Is it hard?

    I want to do something that interests me but also has good possibilities for the future. I don't really have a clue what i want to do, so for anyone who has done one or is doing one now I was wondering what you're planning to do job wise after your degree?

    Thanks guys! xxx

    It's definitely worth doing. Even if you don't know what you want to do as a career, the Geography degree provides many transferable skills that will be desirable to employers, such as report writing, data analysis, essays, teamwork, projects etc, etc. And a large proportion of employers don't even care what degree you do, so make sure you're doing something you enjoy for three years! (it looks like you do)

    You could combine your degree with a masters or further study when you've decided on your career path. Geography is seen as one of the most employable degrees around and graduates go into many different fields including finance, marketing, geog-related fields such as meteorology, etc. The list is endless and you should be able to find out loads more at the career fairs your university will hold.

    Good luck
