I'm a Year 12 student with an upcoming meeting with a school careers advisor, and I'm a little stumped on what I actually want to do at uni. Yes, I definitely want to go, because I am absolutely mortified by the idea of working full-time from 18 onwards and I'd like to have the uni lifestyle.
I'm studying English Literature, Religious Studies and Psychology (and doing an EPQ on postmodern art), and I'd like to go to either Exeter uni (because it's a short enough train ride away from my parents) or a Scottish uni (like Edinburgh, because they have better trans healthcare). I don't mind going to another university though.
My main problem, I guess, is that I don't really know what to do in the future. I think something to do with English Lit would be nice, because I enjoy it lots, but I'm getting a little burnt out from scholarly things so idk if I'd like to be a professor or critic or something. I've thought of being a librarian, so that'd be my best idea currently, though I am pretty scared about the pay being too low for future nation economic crises and things.
Somewhat unrelated, but funeral care/morticianary work has interested me, but that has a lot of communication/conversational skills that my social anxiety disagrees with, and because I'm not taking Biology/PE it'll be difficult to do anything related to enbalming.
I am interested in Anthropology as well, but most courses relating to that demand History (to my knowledge) and its too late for me to change courses now.
Thanks for listening :>
