Some of the best people I know still aren’t sure what they want to do, my advice would be to give it a go. If you don’t like it you can always try something else. Whatever is in your heart follow it, don’t be something just because someone in your family is. Whether you’re looking to be a leader, a designer or come up with new ideas and a better way of doing things, make sure it’s something that fills you with passion.

Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

This programme prepares individuals to be decision makers and leaders in planning our urban and rural environments and managers of our scarce natural resources.

This innovative programme combines both natural and social science perspectives and leads to an honours degree. Students learn about interpreting scientific, technical and design data and applying this to the formulation, implementation and evaluation of policies in the specialist areas of planning and environmental management.

Students take all subjects in Year 1 and in Year 2 choose options from the Spatial Planning or Environmental Management areas and fully specialise in Year 4. Projects and fieldwork, under the supervision of practising professionals, are an integral part of the programme and in Year 3 there is a field trip to another EU state. (Students need to make financial allowance for this). The programme also includes an optional practice placement in Year 4 of the programme, which will count against final marks.
