Hi,
I am currently in year 12 doing French, Spanish and Business A Level's. I'm aware it's an unusual combination, but I was wondering what sort of degrees these would suit best. Obviously the obvious degrees are Business, french and Spanish, however would degree's such as law and International relations be out of reach? Or any other humanities/finance related courses?
Thanks in advance

You could do basically any degree that isn't a STEM course, healthcare course, psychology, economics, most visual and/or performing arts course, most English literature courses, most history degrees, and some geography degrees. Anything else is fine.

Neither law nor international relations have any required prerequisite subjects or expected knowledge. You could do just about any language based course, either European, Asian, African, Middle Eastern, or ancient. Pretty much any humanities or social science degree except those noted above are options, from sociology to philosophy to anthropology to history of art.

Also if you wanted to do a STEM course you could still do so via a foundation year.

You should do some careers investigation to work out what sort of thing you want to do. For the most part, a lot of degrees don't really require specific subjects. Prospects is a great place to start. Focus on finding out what sort of work is out there, and what sort of things you'd like to do. Maybe ask around your teachers, or parents/older sibling's friends. Then, work out if a degree will help you, and then what degree will help. Work out if there are pathways that don't require a degree.

Have a plan. University will always be there, you can go later.

And, don't worry about getting to that career and finding you hate it. Life is all about picking directions and walking in them, then when you exhast one way and fall down, you pick another.
