    Hey, if you've just come out of uni with a degree in something classical or ancientey, then this thread was made for you!!!!!!!

    I'm going into my last year at college, and I want to do Ancient History (maybe Egyptology) at uni. But my parents think that means I'll become a history teacher or that guy at the museum who's always tidying things up for no reason.

    However, my career advisor assures me that is not the case, and that many doors are opened up (I'm looking into conversion courses for finance or law).

    I know like the economy is a bit of a poo at the moment, but I would really appreciate it if you could tell me about any job offers or prospects for you guys.

    thanks for reading =]

    Well you can get onto a graduate scheme (finance, supermarket, or whatever...) with pretty much any degree, as long as you get a 2.1. Also the point of a conversion course is pretty obvious. I wouldn't worry too much =) Although I would suggest looking for relevant summer placements.
