Guys, I have a question to Philosophy/Philosophy and Politics students. I would really love to study these subjects but I have no idea what careers would I be able to pursue later. Currently, it seems like I am going to Lancaster and I am kind of worried about the job aspect of it as I have a weird desire to be able to have some competitive job in the future and I am seriously thinking about declining my offer now and applying for law next year. So what are your plans after you guys graduate?

You can do law afterwards, I've wrote two references this week for phil graduates going onto the GDL

don’t decline! aren’t you able to switch courses? email your university about it (: i’ve applied for law and philosophy, purely because i enjoy philosophy and want to study it further. law is for the career aspect. good luck.

Hello,
As someone else said, you can do law afterwards (it's common for people to convert to law after studying a non-law degree). You'll also be studying a respectable degree from a great university so it should open lots of doors! There will be lots of career opportunities that will help you to get experience in fields you're interesting in when you get here - so make sure you make the most of them! You'll also have some time to maybe switch courses slightly when you get here too, including possibly taking a minor subject.
