    The good thing about it is that Chemical Engineering is a diverse degree. You can work in different sectors after graduating.

    Economics and Politics.. No idea what you can do with that if you don't want to be a politician or an economist :p: Any ideas?
    There are a lot of graduate entry jobs that don't really specify what degree you need, normally it's just asking for a 2:1.

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/Politics_Degree

    olitics is a sought-after degree amongst employers. The core (subject-specific) and transferable skills (the current buzzword in graduate employment) a politics degree teaches are useful in a variety of careers. Politics teaches you not just about how governments work, but to be highly analytical, to write fluently, present confidently and argue effectively, all useful skills. This prospects.ac.uk page gives an indication of the employment rates of politics graduates. Only 6.7% of graduates were unemployed after their degree, with the remaining 93.3% in employment or further study.

    Although graduates end up in all sorts of roles, from investment bankers to accountants, popular career paths include:

    Jobs directly related to your degree

    * Public affairs consultant (lobbyist) - uses their understanding of the political system to provide political and public policy advice to their clients.
    * Politician's assistant - provides their elected Members with the administrative, secretarial, research, constituency, parliamentary and publicity support they require to carry out their role.
    * Government research officer - provides research required to help inform the policy decisions of ministers.
    * Social researcher - designs, formulates, carries out and manages social research projects, either personally or via agencies.
    * Civil Service Fast Streamer - fast track training programme to work with and for government; roles include policy adviser, project leader, consultant and researcher.

    Jobs where your degree would be useful

    * Charity fundraiser - employed to achieve an annually agreed money-raising target through actively marketed and promoted activities, campaigns or events.
    * Education administrator - organises and oversees administrative activities and systems that support and facilitate the smooth running of an education institution.
    * Local government administrator - deals with the administrative needs of different departments, assists in the development of policies and procedures, and helps coordinate their implementation. There are many areas of specialism including: finance; personnel; education; social work; and IT.
    * Event organiser - identifies potential business, researches markets and plans and runs all aspects of events on behalf of a client or their own organisation.
    * Market researcher (qualitative/quantitative) - collects data from a variety of sources and uses it to enable informed decision-making in many sectors.
    * Volunteer work organiser - coordinates the work of volunteers and develops new voluntary opportunities either within their own organisation or on behalf of other organisations such as hospitals.
    Also take a look at http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...ployers_Guides , it is a list of graduate employers and what they require. Which is not normally a specific degree

    Chemical engineer FTW

    the average pay is much higher than everything else except dentistry, medicine and law. Highest within all other engineering professions. You can go into massive oil industry which is a liquid 'gold mine'

    PLUS alot of chemists figure that the chem eng is the better way and come and do a masters course in chem eng
