I couldn't get onto my dream course of Modern Languages and Economics so I had to settle for Modern Languages and Business Studies (Has some econ in it but not a lot.) I feel like I'm going to struggle with employability when I leave university. Maybe I should've chosen a STEM subject. I'm so scared that I'm struggling to focus on my work. I am in close contact with my uni's career service and I have 4 years to gain work experience and improve my CV. But, I just feel so hopeless. I feel like I've ****ed up my life and that I'll never be able to have a nice job or life.

Relax first of all. You've barely started your life and got everything to look forward to!

There may be optional units you can select which are more focused on economics. To improve your CV, have a think about joining a society or gaining work experience through internships or part-time jobs. You can also later do an MSc after your degree in a more specialised topic if you choose.

Firstly, there are like 100 jobs you can get with your degree. Secondly, you always have another chance at doing specifically what you want at masters level. There are so many options you could do a law conversion course or do internships at investment banks- if you're interested in it. Remember most billionaires don't even use their degrees. Dont worry, just do your best in your current degree then you will find the opportunities. Lastly, life is supposed to be fun and a roller coaster so the more twists and turns you go through now will make for a great life.

Real talk here: it'S all BS. You can do anything you like, it doesn't change much whether you are doing ML & Econ or ML & BS. Focus on spring weeks, attend insight and open days and get responsibility pistons without your university societies. They all matter 1000x more than that slight variation in degree.
