18 and have no chosen path in lifeWatch
I’ve always wanted to do something public services related like the police. I just don’t know what college course I would be interested in to help me achieve this.
At least you haven't used up all your SFE funding like me! I would suggest taking time to consider what you want to do (as long as necessary, it may be a few months or a few years) before applying to uni, since the funding isn't endless :x additionally going to uni a little later with greater clarity of purpose will be a great help in your academic achievement, as you'll be able to more seriously prepare for your coursework submissions and exams, rather than just "going through the motions" which isn't so uncommon with school leavers who just go directly into uni "because" (this is from experience).
I don’t think you should quit the course you are on right now.. stick at it even if it is boring it stick at it and get that qualification so at least you have something as a last resort.
To help you figure out what you want to do, maybe you could do some volunteering in different places just to explore different options and see if any take your fancy. All worth a try ayy! x x
You can study an access to higher education course which takes you one year which could lead you to uni with these subjects at a college:
-some more however I can't think of one
You could study an open university degree online with any subject of your choice.
I still don't now even though I have a few years experience in my field. Not one of my jobs has been planned, i've never thought "I want to do this role, I will apply specifically for this type of position". I've just fallen into opportunities and taken them as they came.
For the vast majority of jobs as long as you've got a degree, it doesn't really matter what it's in. I work in Asset Management yet I have a History degree, which has no relevance at all. For that reason i'd suggest thinking about what subject you've enjoyed studying and what you'd like to learn more about. I picked History as it was my favourite subject at GCSE/A Level.
