Hi
I am undecided between Sociology and Criminology and a Nursing degree. I have identified pros and cons but I am still undecided.
I was supposed to start uni this year, but for some reasons I couldnt start.
I am not worried though because I see this as a chance for me to choose well.
I initially thought of Political Science then I changed to International Relations and the later to Criminology and Sociology (just to let you know how undecided I am).
I'd go for Nursing because there's a bit of practicals and I have problems with writing(assignments) and job opportunity is quite high.
Sociology and Criminology because I studied a bit of both in high school .
I'd really appreciate sincere opinion of someone(anyone).
Honestly, it'd help a lot. I am not saying that I live of the suggestions of others but it will be of great help since I have no one, I know of, to ask.
Thank you very much in advance.

Hey, Although nursing is 50% practical and 50% theory they go hand in hand. so you will still have to do anatomy & physiology exam plus 3 essays in first year. then pathophysiology in 2nd year and presentations and OSCE if the uni your looking in to does them. Then 3rd year you still have to do 6000 word dissertation plus 3/4 assignments. the work load is not less than the other courses you are considering. the difference is you spend less time in uni due to clinical placements. hope this is helpful
