    Don't panic, I was in the same boat. I didn't know what I wanted to do at uni.

    My advice? Don't go to uni if you don't have any ideas. It's a poor investment.

    Have you considered alternatives to uni as well? Things like apprenticeships?

    What subjects do you enjoy? What do you enjoy doing? How can you relate those to a career? Make a list of everything that interests you and start doing searches for related careers.

    Alternatively pick some random universities and look through the courses they offer. See what interests you. You should also be able to talk to a careers advisor if you need additional help
