Hi I'm trying to decide which degree to pursue, but I just like everything. I see myself working as a nurse, but also as a journalist, teacher, even as a tourist guide. I'm starting university this year, and I'm wondering if there are people out there that feel the same way. Were you absolutely sure about your decision when you began studying what you did, or did you realise you'd chosen the right degree with time? What pushed you (or is pushing you) to choose that degree over others? Or have you just always been sure about what you wanted to dedicate yourself to? Thank you in advance for any response

You just need to follow what you want to do and not anyone else because in the end it is your life and you should live it to the fullest. I did medicine because I really wanted to be a doctor even though no one wanted me to and it went amazing for me. Follow your heart. ✌and your welcome😉

I picked the subjects I was more interested in and felt I could do well in for A-Level. Then I picked my degree based on what subject I enjoyed most and career prospects. Think I knew I had picked the right degree in second year as my first year was very repetitive of A-Levels so I was a bit bored then.

Hi twinklelittlstar

I picked my degree based of what I would enjoy studying the most, as I knew I would be studying the subject for a few years, so if I enjoyed it I would do well in it. Picking a degree can be hard but you should do something you enjoy in as it is a big investment. You could try looking at all the degrees you are considering and seeing how they are taught and what the career paths are for them, this may help you narrow it down. Good luck!

Really there are so many options when choosing a degree don't limit yourself based on what other people tend to do. Looking back, I would have looked into a variety of other degrees like architecture, cybersecurity etc. You want to have some form of enjoyment for what you are studying. I chose my degree based on what subjects in school I was good at, it is a good degree but there is some regret. Luckily I can branch out with masters.
