    Hello TSR. I need help....

    I now have an unconditional offer to study sociology at Bristol University.... but my mind is going crazy as to whether its the right thing to do. I am interested in the subject.... but unfortunately it is not as respected as many other subjects and this may affect my career prospects (note: i dont know what i want to do in the future). So, I have considered taking a year out to re- think and then apply for something new in 2008. Any advice / comments on this dilemna would be hugely appreciated....


    Thanks.

    I guess it depends on what you want to do as a career. I think most employers would be happy enough that you had *a* degree, particularly if you got a first or a 2:1

    University is a huge investment in terms of time and money. Before I applied I spent a long time researching every aspect of it. If I was not 100% convinced the university and more importantly the course, was for me, I would not have applied.

    I think you're probably just having those "have i done the right thing" nerves that everyone suffers. You've got a place at uni now, don't give it up unless you have a definate plan of what you're going to do! Bristol is a good uni, and a degree from there will definatley be taken seriously by employers.

    Its up to you - some people don't care too much about job prospects while some really do and would give up doing somthing which they are more interested for the better job chance.

    Its up to you to see where you are in the scale .

    You could always combine it with somthing, if it can be done. If you are interested in socialogy, have you considered Geography/Economics/Pscycology? They are real people degrees too, study of worldly workings which you could find really interesting.
