Sports studies or physical education? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I want a job based in sport and at the moment, PE teaching is my top option.
    But if i ever change my mind, would been on the PE course leave me in the crap?
    Like what jobs can u get from that, or is it jst PE teaching? can i still get on a PGCE from sport studies?
    Is teaching a good wage? could i still be well off with investing money and saving money well?

    Teaching isn't a good wage; however enjoy your 15 weeks holiday a year. A lot of people would consider that a massive plus.

    Your university should be able to give you an idea of what career paths its graduates typically follow. They should also be able to give you an idea on whether or not the PE degree is too specialised for someone who isn't too sure they want to be a PE teacher.

    Look at their website:



    This page has a crapload of links that have info on career paths:


    If you can't make up your mind from all that, maybe you should find a careers advisor to help you.
