There are two routes I feel at the moment I would like to go down later in my life and they are Investment Banking and Research and teaching at university. Ideally I would like to work for 10 years in the city and then go back to university and get a PhD and do further study...can anyone give me some comments on the plausability of this, I assume it is not really possible but some feedback would be great!

The other way round is more likely, but it depends what subject you are doing. I know a few theoretical physicists who have gone into finance for a few years after their PhD and then back into research. Personally, at this stage of your education I think you are getting a bit ahead of yourself.

You may find it hard being accepted onto a phd program if you have been out of education for a long period; especially in the sciences.

Ah thats sounds quite a good idea, I don't think I am getting ahead of myself just thinking about the future and possible options. Also how hard would it be to get into research again after a few years out if you have a PhD?
