I've never had any career goals and ended up studying Chem Eng purely because of the appealing graduate salary. The last 3 years studying the subject has confirmed to me that it is something I do not enjoy at all. Originally I was fixated on earning £50k later in life so I figured I would just slug it out and the molah would make up for the dull work but my perspective has changed recently. I have been thinking a lot over the last few months about my future and about how money is not my main goal and I am interested in learning a trade or becoming a fireman. Everyone I speak to is very unsuportive of this notion claiming I will regret it when my class mates from Uni are earning so much more than me. I really don't know what to think and I'm just looking for some advice. Thanks

No, stick to becoming an Chem Engineer. You will not regret it in the future.. Think about all those years doing A level maths, Chem, Physics and Degree level Chemistry. VALUE YOUR SCIENCES. I realized the importance of science the hard way.
