I do humanities/social science a-levels so computer science etc. is not an option for me. What’s some degrees that are open for working abroad/remotely (not law, architecture etc.)? Thanks

Ok, so computer/techy stuff does make up a lot of the remote jobs, but there's still quite a variety.

Content creation is a big market. Think brand managers/influencers etc. So you'd need business/marketing/digital skills.

A friend of mine works remotely in translation (but that's only really an option if you speak 2+ languages). Another friend does customer service for an online brand.

Teaching is a possibility, especially if you're interested in travel. I did my degree in Geography (so also Humanities!) and I'm currently teaching English in South Korea, and I'm looking to move onto another country as well as do some teaching online. I've got friends who have done some teaching online as well (remote work), but you should know it's hard to make a monthly wage off this, it's not necessarily consistent money.

I've also done work in the travel industry (Spain, Greece, Italy), but you don't really need a degree for that.

Lots of jobs with remote working don't require specific degree subjects at undergrad, just a good degree. I know people with humanities degrees, social science degrees, language degrees, business and marketing degrees etc. who have all done remote working at various points across different fields.
What kind of subject would you like to study? What field(s) appeal(s) to you? What kind of remote work would you like to be doing (research, social media, teaching/mentoring, data analysis, outreach, administration, cataloguing, production, etc.)? Work from there to see what remote working jobs or options exist within your existing interests/skillset.
