    Probably. Have you looked at grad destinations at unis you're interested in? What about jobs you're interested in, what are their requirements? Remember that you can do pretty much anything that uses your transferable skills.

    you wouldn't even need a PPE degree to work in an NGO. I have many cousins who did for example engineering at university and are now going into finance, accountancy, or investment banking. you go to uni for the skills you gain, many people don't actually follow the actual field into work like my tutor studies economics at ucl but is very sure he doesn't want to go into like economic consultancy as a job but wants to do the course for the skills he will gain like essay writing, maths, analysing data etc

    hope that helps
