    What would you most like to know about University?

    I'm giving a talk at my old school on Friday to a bunch of year 12 physics students, and want some advice about what I should cover.

    Thanks!

    How much maths is involved your degree?

    What are your current career prospects?

    If you're doing a masters/PhD, what field is it in and why did you choose that over all the other fields?

    Edit - Just noticed how old this thread is -_-
    Haha oh. Thanks anyway I'm doing it again next year so what you said is still useful.

    Some more question ideas:

    How much time do you spend in labs(or doing practical work) and how much time do you spend in lectures?

    What exactly do you do in labs?

    How is the transition from a level physics to university level?

    Is it just work work work, or will I have time to join societies and make friends? What societies are there at the university you study at?

    [I already study at uni so I don't need answers, these are just some ideas!]
