Don't just go into teaching because you are looking for long holidays. To teach everyday you need to like children, be very patient and understanding. However I feel it is one of the most rewarding jobs out 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.

Architecture - DT101
 

This five year programme covers topics such as design studio, history theory and criticism of architecture, environment, construction, visual and digital communications, computer applications and law. The majority of the student experience centres around studio based design projects which allow the student to design buildings and explore the urban and rural context. There is a strong emphasis on studio work and exploring the students’ own understanding of architecture throughout the programme.

Students considering this career should have a creative aptitude for architectural design and the organisational ability to implement their designs in practice. They should also have an interest in artistic and cultural aspects of society as well as an aptitude for technical and managerial challenges.

The DIT degree in Architecture is recognised throughout EU member states. Following two years of postgraduate experience they may take the examination in Professional Competence and thus become members of the R.I.A.I and register as an architect.
