Stuck between two Uni coursesWatch this thread
I’m stuck between applying for Criminology or travel and tourism! I’ve always had an interest in criminology with watching and reading about different crimes and I’m also currently studying psychology which I enjoy but I do find difficult at times. However I also have a passion for travelling and sports which then I think travel and tourism would be more enjoyable and therefore get me through the degree?
Judging by what you have said, Criminology seems to be ur preferences (even though you are not sure..). If something is difficult, you shouldnt use that not to do anything because at Uni, no matter what you do, there will be times of increased workload but if you stick at it from day 1, nothing will be hard (I graduated in 2019 so if you want more advice, let me know..)
And let's be honest, we all have a passion for traveling and sports, but you also need to think about future careers and I feel that with criminology, you have a better chance to get jobs after. I am pretty sure you can express ur interest in travel and sports through different sports and travel clubs that the university will have.
what do you think?
A degree in Criminology is worth doing as it could lead you into a wide range of different career areas, and a social science degree is will give you good, usable job skills. Do course 'with study abroad' and see what overseas opportunities are out there - look at Birmingham, Bristol as examples, and there are lots of other Unis where, even without 'study abroad' in the degree title, you can still spend a semester/year overseas.
