I have no clue what career path I’d like to take; I’m currently a college student, studying English Literature, History and Media Studies A Levels. I definitely want to go onto university, but for what I’m not sure. My friends are going into stuff like dentistry, medicine, and I want something to go on something high-paying too! I am a very flexible person, so please give me some ideas and advice!

Those options are perfect for Law. Do you have an interest in this career path?

Choose something you enjoy and will be happy studying exclusively for three years.
If you don't have a career in mind, it's best not to pick something too specific to keep your options open.
I would be wary of picking a degree based on what will be a high paying career. Graduates from any degree could end up with high or low pay, it hugely depends on whether you take advantage of opportunities at uni (e.g. summer internships, academic societies, research undertaken).

What I did was order a university prospectus (or just look at the degrees they offer online) and go through the entire thing and bookmark the subjects that interest me and that I would be happy to study. From there u can make a list of those subjects and look at what career each one could lead you into

I will consider that, thank you!
