    I've always had a keen interest in renewable energy and helping the environment, hence why I'm a vegetarian. I was wondering if studying Law which is my other major interest in life and specialising in environmental law would qualify me to work with energy companies such as Highlands and Islands Enteprise in the energy sector, or would it be more worthwhile for me to study a Renewable Energy degree like Dundee offer? I'm not so keen on the aspect of making the equipment and installing them myself but would love to manage a team who do and inspire others to implement these renewable systems on. A wide scale basis. I'm not good enough at maths or physics to study a engineering degree so I was also wondering g what other degrees may help with a job in renewable energy and what universities would be good for them. Thanks.

    You need Maths & Physics for Renewable Energy at Dundee.

    Law could be a route. But pretty much any degree is acceptable for a trainee managerial/administrative role.

    Have a look at current vacancies - senior roles show you what the career path can look like, junior/trainee roles show you the way in. Obviously vacancies change regularly so it's worth keeping an eye on them for a period of time.
    - e.g.
