So I have to decide this month which degree to do art or English, I’ve literally been trying to make a decision since the start of this year, but I’m so stuck and can’t find any chats similar to help me decide, I like both subjects equally, I’ve always been naturally better at English but the jobs don’t seem to interest me as much as art but pay better? I’m so stuck 🙂

English degree opens many doors and is a useful baseline qualification. If you are looking for job security then you have to be a professional, for example Solicitor, Doctor, Dentist, Engineer, Accountant etc. In my opinion, Teaching is the most secure profession especially in times of recession. There is never ending supply of clients (learners/students).

Yeah I do agree that teaching is a pretty secure job as I have a few family members that are teachers/my sister in an engineer honestly whenever I look up English degree related jobs and teaching is always the first one I do find it slightly disheartening as it just doesn’t interest me but yeah it is secure for sure

You can do a year conversion course or two year SQE professional exams to become a Solicitor.
