In the end, what students do after they have got their degree is entirely up to them - it's their life after all, not ours. I always hope that a number of them will want to continue onto further study, and a fair chunk (around 25-30%) do go on to do at least a Master's degree. What matters for us, is what you're doing and going to do during your time at University that matters to us and we want students who are going to enjoy and flourish on our History course.(Original post by Mazoorie)
I get that having an oxbridge degree opens up almost any door to any career you want. But how do you think a history lecturer at cambridge would feel if he knew that a fair chunk of his students are gonna be interns at canary wharf (or alternative) as soon as they get their degree?
When can you expect yours?
