    I have no idea what I want to study at University.
    I'm really interested in Language and Culture.
    I don't know what it's called but; South Korea and Spain for example, two countries that are similar in size and population, both very poor until decades ago, now first world rich countries. Difference being, that of course Spain now has an economic crisis. Is this the study of Economics?
    I'm also really interested in Business Management/Tourism. I'd love to own my own business one day (way in the future.)
    But I know that it's ideal to pick a degree in a subject that won't limit your job opportunities. The thing is I don't know what is a good degree these days.

    You don't need a degree in business to open up your own. Languages would be a good degree if you have a passion for them, though most require an A level in a language.

    What qualifications have you got?

    Perhaps you ought to research International relations degrees?

    If you take a modern languages degree, you don't just study language. You have to take a whole load of other papers (language is the minority!) including culture, film, history, philosophy etc. and it's up to you what you want to take. So if you took a degree in Spanish, you could study history of Spain, politics and so on.

    Alternatively, there are loads and loads of business+language, or international relations+language degrees, so consider one of those.
