Find and read all the information available about the course and profession to make a well informed decision before considering this career path. Understand the commitment involved and be willing to make sacrifices to complete it successfully.

Being organised is essential. Establish what goals you want to achieve and set out how you are going to achieve them – don’t lose focus along the way.

When starting off, the right training and experience is far more valuable in the long run than an initial pay increase. Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day so patience is essential, you will eventually get there.

Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

blank Course Summary... blank

 

Economics involves the examination of questions such as how we get incomes and spend them, how prices are determined, how inflation arises, what causes employment to expand or contract, why countries are more or less prosperous. No previous knowledge of economics is assumed.

As part of an Arts degree, economics is one of four subjects you choose from a menu of subjects in first year. You continue with two of your chosen First Year subjects in second and third year. You may have an option to spend an additional year studying abroad.



blank Careers or Further Progression... blank

 

As a generalised subject, economics can lead into careers in banking, financial services, accountancy, economic consultancy or research, administration, journalism, teaching, or public relations.
