Choosing a uni course Watch
I have joint hypermobility syndrome, so I get pain in my joints, and I got a back injury when I was about 11 when another kid kicked me in the back, and I've had problems with it ever since. Being on my feet for a long period of time without sitting is agony. I was crying after every shift, too, and losing a lot of sleep. Everyone could see I was extremely unhappy and miserable, so my mentors advised to step back from the course and decide if the course is right for me. As I said, they didn't think Nursing is right for me. They said that all the reasons why I wanted to be a nurse are there, they just didn't think that Nursing is the right way for me to express them, and told me not to abandon healthcare completely.
I have a few prospectuses from some of the universities I looked at, and noted down which courses interested me:
- Biomedical Science
- Crime & Investigative Studies
- English Language & Linguistics (Languages was my back-up option when I was in Sixth Form)
- Forensic Chemistry/Forensic Science
- Health & Social Care
- Social Work
- Speech and Language Therapy
What are these courses like? Can anyone give me an insight? What sort of careers can I enter into from these courses, and which require further study? Which universities are you studying at, or which universities do you consider to be the best for these courses?
Tl;dr - I left my Nursing course because I was unhappy. What can you tell me about the above courses?
