Why did you choose your courseWatch this thread
What would you rather do:
A subject which interests you but which there is a very slim chance of actually working in that field?
A subject which is "ok" but has better chances of employability?
Student life, in partnership with UEA
1. it was a subject i did at a level, the only subject i have found to completely and utterly grab my attention and interest me fully
2. studying it will give me a number of transferable skills
I never thought of employability to be honest, i've never been worried that i wouldn't find a job in the future...maybe a little naive, but i'd prefer to do something i enjoy for three years when the fees alone are costing £9000
Will soon start English and Creative Writing at Royal Holloway...but already am thinking of changing to Philosophy. I've read all the books on our reading list and, though, I find it interesting don't think I will be that challenged and am deathly afraid that the subject just won't hold my interest for very long. If I'm not multi-tasking/taking charge/or allowed to intellectually expand I get annoyed, lazy, and just plain unhappy.
1. It was my strongest subject
2. The course included a year in an Australian/New zealand University
Of course, it was always the first one that was the drawing factor! not
Also it gives me the opportunity for travel, is very flexible in what i do (i.e different wards and placement areas).
The starting slary for a nurse in london is not too bad either (around 22 k). And i am interested in care work and biology.
Self gratification. Pleasing others to please yourself, it's difficult to draw the line. Don't even know if there is a line.
I chose mine because I absolutely love the subject. I'm just lucky that there's a big demand for computer geeks
There are? I remember the industry being quite saturated when I was working as an IT engineer.
However, how much demand would depend on which parts of the field you specialise in, and whether you're more IT-based, or whether you're in the science side of it.
