    I originally wanted to go to Edinburgh, had the offer and everything, but realised I couldn't actually afford to live there for the year, which is a shame

    Ha you never can tell when things are typed You don't get any funding for a master's, so it will be self-funded via parents and working. I will be able to do it without, just might be tight some times

    What would your dream job be?

    Ahhh, extra good luck then!

    Aiming for something chemistry /science related where i can use the skills/knowledge i learnt over my degree since i worked hard to get them and want to use them. I don't want frontline chemistry research though. Something related like analytical work or supply work seems good to me. :yep:

    Not really sure on "dream job" but i'm sure i'll know when i'm not in it...

    Curious as to what job you want because I do a (somewhat) similar degree, history and politics, humanities at least.
